1999 Lexus RX 300 4dr SUV AWD


Downsized from an LS 430 and love both cars. Seats just as comfortable with just the right height and strong seat heaters. Good stereo/CD. Mileage ranges from 17-18 running errands to 23-24 on the flat highway. Great car for realtor/inspector and practical for bad weather, bad roads. Keep oil/trans fluids changed though. I switched to K&N filter and 0/30 Mobil-One oil and get 1-3 better MPG. Mine has 161,000 and looks/runs like new.

Best Features

Comfortable seats. Strong seat heaters. Gas MPG reading on dash. Size and practical AWD SUV type configuration.

Worst Features

Bigger gas tank and tighter turning circle. Both fixed in newer models. Gas MPG could be better but for AWD SUV its actually very good. Invest in K&N and thin synthetic motor oil, will keep engine in better shape.
