1999 Lexus RX 300 4dr SUV AWD


Bought the Lexus Rx 300 because of Lexus' reputation of being a reliable vehicle, sadly disappointed with our experience.

We bought this car 5 years ago with 48K miles on it and hoped to drive it over 200K miles. Unforunately at 100K miles the car had a steering column failure, the worst the dealer had ever seen. Car was unsafe to drive. Cost of repairs $1,700. Less than 12 months later at 112K miles the engine went. Expected cost to replace $5,000 for a used engine, significantly more for a new one.

Never expected this from Lexus! at 112K miles... are you kidding me. Should have read reviews before buying it.

Best Features

Too bitter to think of any...

Worst Features

Heated leather seats aren't worth much in a car without a working engine! EPIC FAIL!
