2006 Lexus RX 330 SUV 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

15 mos in service. At 25k miles, a/c clutch and hub replaced, power steering unit replaced, steering shaft "U" bolt replaced (to stop grinding sound), with tires rotated and checked for wear the Goodyears became noisy @ 25k miles and wore unevenly, tire rep said they usually give 25-27k miles service! Replacements are expensive as "performance" tires are mandatory. New Michelins are doing just fine. Numerous rattles were finally fixed after many miles of aggravation. Key areas failed not the "toys". Limited number of dealerships is a minus.


Best Features

Outside mirror tilt when in reverse.


Worst Features

Fix erratic transmission shifting.

2006 Lexus RX 330 SUV 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is basically a Toyota Highlander with upgraded trim, equipment and dealer network. That said, you give up some space for much better ergonomics, a little more style (although neither vehicle is going to win any one-off design awards) and gizmos. Reliability is Toyota all the way, but with a service department that is told to treat you like a valued customer instead of joe schmo. Performance is in the range of a Camry (same chassis, not surprising) which is to say it gets you to Target and back but you're not going to be autoXing this thing. Despite the supposed exclusivity of Lexus, the RX sells well so you see a ton.


Best Features

Reliability.


Worst Features

More cubby holes to hold phone, change, etc.

Review

The car handles beautifully and the ride and acceleration is good. I was in a VW Toureg before and miss the weight. It is too light for me.


Worst Features

Storage by gear shift, larger trunk, more weight.

Review

A real pleasure. Everything works. Even the Nav System which is difficult to master is better than the last I had. Performance is very good and handling is outstanding.


Best Features

The remote control rear door. Not only is it handy, but also get some a few envying comments.


Worst Features

Would like to have more cargo room - like the Toyota Highlander would be a good start.

Review

Great all around vehicle. Plenty of room in back and for luggage. Rides very nice. As trouble free as an car on the road.


Best Features

Navigation system is very good. Like back up camera. Very good air conditioning.


Worst Features

Wider track and wheels and tires. Only complaint is that car looks a bit thin from the front and back.
