Second Lexus... more to come
By Lexus fan on
2005 Lexus RX 330 AWD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
This is our 2nd RX, 1st was 2000 also bought used, now with 120,000 miles passed down to son. These are great cars, great company to work with even if there are issues; the perfect car. Crossover sits higher, easier to enter/exit, safer on road. Great in winter, fun to drive. Two recommendations: buy Certified Preowned from a dealership you trust. 2nd recommendation: do not scrimp on tires as they make a huge difference in road noise and handling. Recommended: Michelin Energy LX4. We compared the RX with a 2005 Acura MDX, which felt cumbersome with a boring exterior.
Driving it is a delight. Power rear door very convenient. Windows and sunroof can be opened remotely after unlocking the car by holding down the unlock button on the key. Walnut wood trim is very pretty with a pleasing grain and color.
Color coordinated spoiler would be nice. Would prefer more intuitive CD controls, but we do like having the cassette tape option.
