Not a Lexus Toyota Fan Anymore
By Joe on


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


My well-maintained 01 RX 300 just died at 115K miles with a bad transmission. Estimated cost to repair is in the many thousands. After over 10 years of owning Toyotas (an 88 Camry, a 95 ES 300 and then the 01 RX 300), I've changed from a die-hard fan to a never-again disbeliever. Couldn't believe my eyes when the RX just died the way it did. This after following the factory maintenance schedule and taking good care of it.

Best Features

Handling in snow. Cassette player to play my mp3s through. Smooth ride. Well-appointed interior.

Worst Features

Horrible turning radius. Gas mileage tends to be about 17/19. The fact that the car is dead.
