like a tank

2002 Lexus RX 300 AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


This vehicle rides like a tank. My wife likes this. I don't. She is very happy with the car. She feels safe and the seats are good for her sore back. I don't complain but I do find it top- heavy and unresponsive. Do yourself a favor and put on the best tires money can buy, get them rotated regularly and have the alignment checked. We get 19 mpg on a mix of city and highway driving. At 80000, it's been reliable. I shudder to think what a serious repair would cost. For this reason alone, I am agreeable to trading it in on a certified pre-owned RX330.

Best Features

Comfort, safety.

Worst Features

Better tires. Turning radius.
