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.
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
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.
My RX330 was in for service 4 times in
the 1st month that I owned the
vehicle. They are unable to fix the
alignment and I have had 3 speakers
replaced & another broken one. No one
from Lexus would return a call until
the 4th time that I called and demanded
to speak with a real person. They said
they would replace my car and then said
something different. McGrath wouldn't
take it back because they said it was
used. They gave me a defective car but
no one would help......until I
contacted an attorney.
HUGE disappointment and waste of $44k.
Taken back to dealer 4 times since July
for rattles they can't fix (ripped out
dash twice) jerky transmission
that "clunks" when you come to a stop,
loud wind/road noise-it sounds like a
window is open. Loud,ticking noise from
engine. Lexus says this is "normal"
although their ES330
with the same engine does not have this
DO NOT BUY THIS VEHICLE.Dealer admits
there are many problems with the new
Many others are having the same
problems.I would hope that Lexus would
adhere to their bogus "Passionate
Pursuit of Perfection" and stop
production until they can produce a
Power Rear Door, rear back-up camera,
Transmission, wind/road noise, engine
ticking,a/c blower motor squealing,
rattles from all around the interior
cabin-(even with stereo on)
the list goes on......
This vehicle seems to float above the
road. It's responsive, is incredibly
comfortable even on long trips, and has
a lot of really well thought out
features. The exterior and interior fit
and finish is tasteful, luxurious with
a very high quality of craftsmanship.
It's great looking, definitely 21st
Automated rear hatch, rear seat
flexibility, rain sensing wipers,
console storage, rear seat
entertainment system, and I can go
The headlights in low beam could extend
down the road a little more. I can't
think of anything else.
We purchased at Lexus of Ann Arbor what
a great experience from our sales
person Trish to our service
visits...all wonderful. The RX330 was
a great purchase decision. Quiet ride
with all the comforts you expect from a
THE POWER REAR DOOR AND THE NAVIGATION
SYSTEM.....A MUST HAVE FOR ANYONE WHO
LIKES TO TRAVEL.
