2004 Lexus RX 330 4dr Fwd SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This vehicle is for people who do not want quick acceleration and solid corning. The vehicle leans too much when turning, and the acceleration is horrible. The drive-by-wire feature needs to be redesigned to allow the driver to be the decision maker, instead of some computer programs. There are also various interior squeaks and rattles. Very un-Lexus.


Favorite Features

Fuel economy is good for a V6 SUV. Not much else to say here.


Suggested Improvements

Make the vehicle more responsive and sporty.

Review

ONLY OWNED APPROX. THREE MONTHS, BUT SO FAR, NOT A SINGLE PROBLEM. VERY COMFORTABLE AND RIDES AS WELL AS MY 2003 LINCOLN TOWNCAR. ONLY POSSIBLE COMPLAINT IS THAT THE DASHBOARD IS LOADED WITH BUTTONS THAT A WHILE TO GET FAMILAR WITH.

2004 Lexus RX 330 4dr AWD SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The seats are very comfortable and sit high over the road for maximum visibility. I don't get tired after a ong drive. Living in Maine, I find that the heated seats in front are most welcome.The rides is very smooth.I feel extremely safe in this car. The manufacture has done everything possible to make it the safest SUV.I recommend it highly and will plan to replace it eventually with another one just like it.


Suggested Improvements

The drivers armrest has to be lifted to buckle the seat belt.The disc player is inonvenient and should be like the one in the Lexus 400 series. I don't like the plastic bumpers. Rubber would be better and less prone to crack.

Review

Go SUPERLATIVE!! Except the front passenger seat - only a 4 way adjuster, and no upgrade option- most uncomfortable on long journeys. Driver seat is superb. Go SUPERLATIVE! Except the drive train - miserable clunks in trans/transfer case. Freeway slightest slopes it's shifting up and down.


Favorite Features

Nav. system/camera. Driver seat. Power liftgate. Rear seat adjustable tilt Handles well


Suggested Improvements

Passenger seat adjustments. FIX the tranny/ tx box/ shift point and computer

Review

This vehicle as some unusual annoyances for such a luxury brand as Lexus. 1. the central console area very strange. I cannot even find a good place to put my cell phone. 2. The brake pedal makes this bouncing sound, if you release it too quickly. 3. the sun visor is not tight enough when it is dropped down on the driver side window. It would swing over and hit my head sometimes. 4. The biggest annoyance so far is the moonroof. It will make a constant low volume squeaking/twisting noise while the vehicle is moving. The only way muffle the noise is to shut the moonroof interior panel.


Favorite Features

This vehicle has good power and great gas mileage for a V6 SUV. I get up to 22 mpg on mixed local and highway driving. I trust the engine and the mechanicals are rock solid with this vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

They need to prevent the little noises, and create more usable interior compartments. This vehicle also shares many components with other Toyota vehicles, such as the engine, steering wheel, and gauges. It makes Lexus look cheap.
