Disappointed Driver
By Kiichiro on


2005 Lexus RX 330 AWD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Typical Toyota high build quality and reliability but feels soul-less on the road. Front seat passengers seem to enjoy the vehicle more than I do. Rear seat passengers, aside from the low seat, also seem pleased. But behind the wheel, the steering is dull, the transmission/drivetrain seems to hesitate before doing your bidding. Normally, disappointment in the driving department is made up at the gas pump but not here where I see 16-17 MPG in the city and 20-21 on the highway. Oh well, at least with the Lexus name and good resale value I can probably get out of this vehicle for not much less than what I paid for it pre-owned.

Best Features

Interior fit and finish.

Worst Features

More feedback in the steering. Eliminate hesitation in transmission/driveline. Better fuel economy. Higher rear seat for comfort.
