A 40K+ Car Shouldn't Rattle
By Stan on


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


I started out loving this car. Excellent highway passing capability, spectacular emergency handling (saved my life on one occasion) and superior comfort. BUT little things mean a lot. After about 8000 miles a rattle developed under the dash. Soon it sounded as if the entire dash was shifting after a moderate bump. Still not resolved to my satisfaction. I've since learned that this is a problem endemic to early production units. Lexus should do better.

Best Features

Power and handling - not a sports car but great for a luxury ride. I love the auto tailgate. leather seats are sinfully comfortable.

Worst Features

Body integrity needs serious attention. The sliding center console could be better designed for useability. The manual is confusing - especially about the radio.
