First Lexus, Not the Last
By GeoffM on


2001 Lexus RX 300 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Our first SUV,purchased with 45k and
factory certification to 100k. Great
ride, handling a little mushy around
corners, but good for SUV. Very
comfortable, and we always "feel" the
pleasure of a luxury riding vehicle.
Very quiet ride. Did not get the NAV
system, but am planning on purchasing
top-of-the-line portable system.

Have tested the new Acura MDX and BMW
X5, and while nice cars, we still like
the RX better.

This is my wife's car, but I like it
so much that I'm buying a 2001 AWD RX
Silversport with 33k, factory
certified, sports suspension that
handles curves better. I
never buy new; let some other guy eat
the depreciation.

Best Features

Certified warranty (don't buy any car without one). Haven't needed to use it yet. With low milage purchase, we actually got a better bumper-to-bumper milage warranty than buying a new RX330. Good dealership and great salesperson.

Worst Features

Seats comfortable, but wish there was a little better thigh support in seat length. Side view mirrors that automatically adjust with seat position.
