Beware of driveability
By shmersla on


2003 Lexus RX 300 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


I have 1,200 miles on my RX and have had
it in for service 3 times to try to fix the
tracking, alignment problem. The car will not
drive down the road straight and stay driving
straight as if the front and rear wheels are
out of sync or camber. I have to constantly
correct the car from drifting right and left. It's
as though it responds to any and every
imperfection or shift in the road and will drift
off regardless of whether you have the
wheel pointed straight. I cannot relax and
cruise with this car and must keep my arms
flexed and be ready for every unexpected
shift in direction. Long drives are out of the
question. I couldn't be more unhappy...

Best Features

Given the above, it's really hard to appreciate all the great things about this car. It is certainly gorgeous and well appointed, but if the thing doesn't drive well, all the rest is moot.

Worst Features

fix the drive. I've driven 3 RXs (2 loaners) and they all have this drive problem. Lose the CD cassette and add the in-dash. The instrument panel is a bit confusing. The tires are too skinny.
