2004 Lexus RX 330 SUV 4dr Fwd SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This vehicle as some unusual annoyances
for such a luxury brand as Lexus. 1.
the central console area very strange.
I cannot even find a good place to put
my cell phone. 2. The brake pedal makes
this bouncing sound, if you release it
too quickly. 3. the sun visor is not
tight enough when it is dropped down on
the driver side window. It would swing
over and hit my head sometimes. 4. The
biggest annoyance so far is the
moonroof. It will make a constant low
volume squeaking/twisting noise while
the vehicle is moving. The only way
muffle the noise is to shut the
moonroof interior panel.


Best Features

This vehicle has good power and great gas mileage for a V6 SUV. I get up to 22 mpg on mixed local and highway driving. I trust the engine and the mechanicals are rock solid with this vehicle.


Worst Features

They need to prevent the little noises, and create more usable interior compartments. This vehicle also shares many components with other Toyota vehicles, such as the engine, steering wheel, and gauges. It makes Lexus look cheap.

Review

My RX330 was in for service 4 times in
the 1st month that I owned the
vehicle. They are unable to fix the
alignment and I have had 3 speakers
replaced & another broken one. No one
from Lexus would return a call until
the 4th time that I called and demanded
to speak with a real person. They said
they would replace my car and then said
something different. McGrath wouldn't
take it back because they said it was
used. They gave me a defective car but
no one would help......until I
contacted an attorney.

Review

HUGE disappointment and waste of $44k.
Taken back to dealer 4 times since July
for rattles they can't fix (ripped out
dash twice) jerky transmission
that "clunks" when you come to a stop,
loud wind/road noise-it sounds like a
window is open. Loud,ticking noise from
engine. Lexus says this is "normal"
although their ES330
with the same engine does not have this
noise.

DO NOT BUY THIS VEHICLE.Dealer admits
there are many problems with the new
RX330.

Many others are having the same
problems.I would hope that Lexus would
adhere to their bogus "Passionate
Pursuit of Perfection" and stop
production until they can produce a
quality vehicle.




Best Features

Power Rear Door, rear back-up camera, luxurious-looking interior


Worst Features

Transmission, wind/road noise, engine ticking,a/c blower motor squealing, rattles from all around the interior cabin-(even with stereo on) the list goes on......

Review

This vehicle seems to float above the
road. It's responsive, is incredibly
comfortable even on long trips, and has
a lot of really well thought out
features. The exterior and interior fit
and finish is tasteful, luxurious with
a very high quality of craftsmanship.
It's great looking, definitely 21st
Century.


Best Features

Automated rear hatch, rear seat flexibility, rain sensing wipers, console storage, rear seat entertainment system, and I can go on.....


Worst Features

The headlights in low beam could extend down the road a little more. I can't think of anything else.
