My Favorite Vehicle...Until
By bridgils on


1999 Lexus RX 300 4dr SUV AWD


I have loved this vehicle since the first test drive. It exceeded my expectations for years until today. This SUV is notorious for costly transmission failures - today I join this club. It would have been the perfect vehicle if the tran would have held up. The repair cost is anticipated to be the blue book on the vehicle - tough call.

Best Features

Heated seats - they become your best friend in the winter, stereo, quiet and gentle ride - even with 129K miles

Worst Features

Toyota has known about the transmission problems and shamefully never recalled these high-end SUVs for correction. Some accounts of failure were not only costly, but life threatening.
