Purchased this Lexus dealership loaner RX in 2004 with about 13,000 miles on it, and as of this written has 143,500. This AWD vehicle has been great to me! I've gotten to really know this vehicle really well that I change the oil/filter, cabin and engine filters, all the bulbs from taillights to the low beam bulbs (EXCEPT the HID lights), wiper rubber inserts myself. When it snows here, the AWD RX330 has NO problem what so ever. When this vehicle retires, I plan on purchasing another Lexus.
My 2004 RX 330 has been a great car. I love the body style which continues to be attractive despite changes in the body style of newer models. It has been very reliable. The car now has 178000 miles and with routine maintenance I expect it to last another 100,000 miles!
My son gave me this car when my 14 year old BMW convertible finally gave up the ghost. I am sooooo happy and soooo sold on the Lexus. Would only get a newer Lexus (but this one only has 93k mi & absolutely nothing wrong with anything. People can't believe it's a 2004 it looks so new); especially with all the new safety & tech features which have evolved.
I am the original owner of my 2004 Lexus 330RX. The only major repair I had to do in 11 years of ownership was a new radiator 3 years ago. Otherwise, the car looks/runs like almost new. Both heated seats still work great (although the control knob of one just fell off). The soft leather on the seats has not cracked and only shows a few creases. In fact, every aspect of this vehicle has functioned properly as designed. I plan to continue buying Lexus SUVs because function & reliability are my top 2 most important aspects of car ownership and this Lexus has exceeded my expectations.
great handling in snow
outside noise? just roll up the window
remote trunk opening
