2003 Lexus RX 300 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

It drives great in the city, badly on the highway. The front feels heavy and you have to steer it all the time. It doesn't just cruise straight. The steering is progressive power steering which gets more like manual steering the faster you go. Feels like a truck without power steering on the highway. This makes highway driving tedious and tiring - your arm muscles are always slightly flexed like isometrics. The CD and AC and heater controls are confusing and not intuitive. If you lower the steering wheel, you can't see the blinkers or the mirror controls. The estimated gas mileage is not accurate. I'm only getting 16 mpg. I am VERY sorry I bought it.

Best Features

The exterior and interior design overall.

Worst Features

Fix the steering and heavy front end feeling. Make the dash interface more intuitive. Add audio controls to the steering wheel. Needs to get better gas mileage. Add a proper console and get rid of those puny arm rests.
