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


Review

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.

Review

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 noise. DO NOT BUY THIS VEHICLE.Dealer admits there are many problems with the new RX330. 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 quality vehicle.


Best Features

Power Rear Door, rear back-up camera, luxurious-looking interior


Worst Features

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......

Review

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 Century.


Best Features

Automated rear hatch, rear seat flexibility, rain sensing wipers, console storage, rear seat entertainment system, and I can go on.....


Worst Features

The headlights in low beam could extend down the road a little more. I can't think of anything else.

Review

Do yourself a favor and read all of the boards on the web that discuss the awful and dangerous transmission. There are severe hesitations and failure to engage when accelerating. There are also reports at www.dot.gov of this problem. Just do a search on the vehicle.

New Transmission
