Waste of Money
By CarProfessional on
2005 Lexus RX 330 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
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.
Auto-dimming mirrors and one-touch automatic
down on the windows.
Transmission - Terrible responsiveness. Constantly
lags, searches for the proper gear, jerks and jumps
into gear, overaccellerating, taking the RPM's near
Windshield - Exterior - Wipers chatter on glass,
streak it. Interior - Fogs up, forcing use of A/C
defroster, reducing gas milage
