2001 Lexus RX 300 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


We bought a Vapor Blue, 01 RX 300 with Premium Package, HID Headlights, Roof Rack and auto dimming mirrors. Have only had it a few weeks, but it is one of smoothest and quietest riding vehicles we've had. Shifts very smooth, and the black leather interior is classy and comfortable. The gas mileage is not near as good as our older Honda Accord, but it has a larger engine and weighs more. This is a great car and was worth the $19,000 we paid. Both Toyota and Lexus hold their value about as good as any brand, so don't expect to find one "cheap". We looked at several RXs, but this one with 70,000 seemed to be about the best deal we could find. We can't wait for winter and some snow!

Best Features

Leather, HID Headlights, Smooth ride and shifting, climate control, 6 Disk CD changer built in, Solid construction and build quality, fold down and reclining rear seats, Stereo sound, overall styling, Heated seats and real wood trim

Worst Features

Should offer rear hatch remote open, also would be nice to have dual zone climate control and more cupholders in rear (has 1). Fuel mileage is fair.
