Fun but jerky
By DJ Winger on


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


I really love my new RX 330 in almost every way. I love the looks, and the enterior and the on the open road. Running errands around town is easier in the 330 than any car I've owned. My only problem with the 330 is a jerking sensation from the transmission whenever I let off the excelerator and then step on it again. This is especially noticeable at low speeds like taking corners in my residential neighborhood. It is truly annoying. The dealership tells me it is caused by the electronic excelator instead of the old-fashioned cable. They claim all cars suffer from this problem, but I have never felt it on any other car I have owned or driven any length of time.

Best Features

The navigation system and the entertainment package along with the styling and the bamboo color that changes shades depending on how you are looking at the SUV.

Worst Features

eliminate the jerkiness in the transmission/acceleration parts. Put in a better audio system. My BOSE in my GMC is much better than the Mark Levinson in my RX 330.
