Lexus RX 330
By Richard Sears on
2005 Lexus RX 330 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
I had one mechanical problem at 6,000
miles -- ABS failure. Dealer repaired
it under warranty and provided me with
a loaner. The vehicle performs well
and no other problems -- 11,800 miles
now. The car handles well and I like
the workmanship -- excellent both
interior and exterior. Transmission
shifts very smoothly except from 1st to
2nd gear. This should be corrected in
future models. The gears are easy to
shift manually. It is fun to drive.
Dealership is the BEST! I would prefer
the wood grain interior around the dash
rather than the chrome metal.
Automatic on and off driving lights.
Folding rear seats -- plenty of cargo
room. Automatic air conditioning/heat
controls. Transmission brakes the car
going downhill without down shifting --
a great feature. I like the wood grain
on the steering wheel. Leather is high
quality -- great!
Trip computer - I would like this to
keep track of the driving time for a
complete trip. It is programed now to
automatically reset the elapsed time of
the trip everytime the vehicle is
started. There should then be a manual
reset when the trip is completed.
Improve the seats -- too narrow!
