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

Review

The purchase of this vehicle is now my most costly mistake. Based on the quality of Toyota trucks I have owned, I bought the RX330. The RX's interior is luxurious, and has nice features, but it is the poorest performing vehicle I've ever driven. The transmission can take over one second to shift. Very dangerous when a car is coming toward you. When accelerating on freeway, RX goes through 2 gears to find the right one. Slowest responding transmission on the market I've driven. Also the windshield fogs so severely inside that you have to constantly run the defroster which runs the A/C. Significantly reduces gas milage and visability for yet another major safety issue.

Favorite Features

Auto-dimming mirrors and one-touch automatic down on the windows.

Suggested Improvements

Transmission - Terrible responsiveness. Constantly lags, searches for the proper gear, jerks and jumps into gear, overaccellerating, taking the RPM's near redline. Windshield - Exterior - Wipers chatter on glass, streak it. Interior - Fogs up, forcing use of A/C defroster, reducing gas milage
