Hesitation and squealing of belts
By bryan on
2006 Lexus RX 330 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
My car rides and looks the part... but hesitates shifting on highway and in town. I had to have the drive shaft replaced luckily under warranty. It recently started squealing like a bad belt. I have had to replace the brakes at only 55k. The maintenance is definitely way more than their over blown reputation.
I do like the steering wheel controls and comfy seats. I also enjoy the remote control access to trunk.
I would like to see Lexus offer an improved drivetrain with fewer maintenance problems.
