Transmission Blues
By Fuming on


2000 Lexus RX 300 4dr SUV AWD


Up until today I LOVED my Rx. It is
just the right size for a woman to
handle and still has power and style.
But today, I was told that my vehicle
needs a new transmission to the tune of
$4,000...count 'em, $4 grand! Of
course it is just 5,000 miles out of

Wondering if anyone else has had this
same problem. Called an independent
transmission shop and they said they
see it on this model all the time!
Yikes, I'm thinking about dumping it
for the MDX. At least my Acura and
Hondas have always kept running even
with 200,000 plus miles wracked up!

Best Features

Small but roomy and very comfortable to drive.

Worst Features

Like the new features on the RX330---at least Lexus is heading in the right direction on interior features.
