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


We bought this brand new and kept it only 7 months. In buying it my wife did not understand her desire for a car that actually went when you pressed the gas. After trying to get constant hesitations programmed out of the controller for our car we gave up and sold this nice but totally poor performance car for a BMW X5 which blows the Lexus away.

Best Features

Great seats and quite ride

Worst Features

Something is seriously wrong with the ability to get power to the wheels on initial acceleration ... it just has pauses - seems to be poor programming or trying to get the best possible gas mileage. Our 2005 Toyota Avalon does not have this issue so it must be a Lexus issue.
