A great luxury suv
By Tina on 01/26/05 10:34 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2005 Lexus RX 330 AWD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The RX330 has a quiet, comfortable ride. All the basic functions are at your fingertips. The navigation system is superb and an absolute must. The sound system (standard with navigation) is very enjoyable. There are many neat little features which add to the enjoyment of driving this vehicle.

Bad HID

Vehicle

2005 Lexus RX 330 AWD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I find the HID's very bad in hilly driving. I constantly have to put on the high beams to illuminate the road properly. They are nice and bright but set too low. I find no fault with the transmission. In town mileage is poor... avg 16- 17/mpg. Highway is about 22mpg. Dealer service is excellent, build quality excellent. Had a chance to use the AWD this past weekend in snow and ice... very good!

Enjoying it Even More than anticipated

2005 Lexus RX 330 AWD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Really comfy car; nice all-around; nice mixture of everything. Just noticing the hesitation everyone is talking about but doesn't seem like a HUGE deal to me. I have the black and chromed the 18s and it looks a lot more sporty--not so "grocery getter" like. Front seat a little short? Wish the base stereo was a little nicer (ML didn't sound much better when I listened--at least not for the money). A sub would be nice. Some body roll in turns, but nothing that's bothersome. I came from a Sport Trac, so that might have to do with it. The headlights do seem to cut off, but they are nice. AFS seems cool--but not sure if it's really ground-breaking in usefulness. Like it more than anticipated.

No Satellite Radio?
By agroveton on 01/22/05 19:56 PM (PST)

Vehicle

2005 Lexus RX 330 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Love the new European styling on the new RX330 ... great head-turner! Can't wait to try out HomeLink with a new bluetooth cellphone. Navigation system and Lexus sound system are adequate but not wonderful. The automatic rear passenger door is great. Mileage is exactly what was promised. Only complaint is that satellite radio should have been an option as on the larger Lexus SUVs.

Remarkable Quality, Reasonable Price

Review

Lexus customer service is superior, making this a great make to own. The RX 330 is large enough to be easy to drive, while not taking up a full parking space and getting all the usual door dings, etc. The handling is excellent and it's just plain fun to drive.

Forget the RX 330
By Cutie on 01/15/05 23:12 PM (PST)

Vehicle

2005 Lexus RX 330 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car has the slowest responding transmission I've ever owned. Downshifts 2 gears when accelerating. Not responsive. Do your web homework and careful test drive on freeway. Push the RX and you'll see, clunks through gears. Also, leather is cheap inside, and plastic feels cheap. Some models have no power door, no telescoping steering wheel, no leather. Don't buy this! 3 trips to the dealer, nothing but frustration. They say car is normal each time, want to reset ECU.

The SUV to buy

Review

I like the soft car like ride. Have problem with location of hazard lights, window opening ease. Should have side rails for shorter people ease of entry and exit.

Seating comfort Lacks!
By jkyker on 01/13/05 11:24 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2005 Lexus RX 330 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The Lexus is a high end suv and I am satisified with all but two things. The seats are not very comfortable at all, too flat with no side support and lacks much comforts. The other is there is no place for change storage and design or layout does not allow for satelitte radio. Iluminated lighting for controls on steering column.
