Pros

No expenses other than gas...  this thing NEVER breaks down - when I was done with my lease, my brother bought it out, still has it and now being 16 years old with over 250k miles, he's just starting to see a few problems, but hasnt' put a dime in other than scheduled maintenance...

Cons

Small inside - I know it isn't a full size SUV, but still, it could be a lot more roomie inside...

Basic Transportation... — Well, I've had several Lexus vehicles as well as several SUVs... and when it comes to this car, I'm just very 'neutral'... even with the newer body styles, it still looks very bland - to a degree it looks like a minivan that is just jacked up a bit.... the inside is nice and I though the mounting of the shifter was a smart move - allowing for a little additional storage space... on the positive side, this thing is bullet proof... you can use it for 200k+ miles and it will be fine - just pay for gas and some tires and scheduled maintanance and you can drive this thing forever!

This Was The Small Suv That Made Small Suvs Really Popular! — This is the first SUV to win Motor Trend's Sports Utility of the Year. This was the birth of a new icon, and Lexus made sure everything was perfect. The interior is just like a Mercedes, the leather is top quality, the wood is the real deal and not that cheap "simulated" kind, the interior is extremely quiet. Overall, a wonderful car.

Pros

Great ride, my wife loves it. Most car seats don't fit her very well and the seat belt hurts her shoulder, but not this one.

Cons

Engine light is always on. We've put a/c compressor, thermostat, and many more repairs. It seems to never end. Finally learned to ignore it.

Great Car With Bad Engine Light. — Expensive to fix, It seems the engine warning light system causes trouble. We are getting rid of it, but other cars feel like junk once you are used to the Lexus. It really wasn't a bad car, it just took us a while to learn to ignore the engine light. Note to others, it's a great car, don't let the engine light ruin your experience.

Pros

Great for a new driver (safe and big), great for a family (large and roomy!), Great for outdoor people (roof rack capabilities, all wheel drive, great in snow and on the mountain), great for clients (toted around many cEO's and professionals in this car and still do!)

Cons

gas mileage is in the 20 mpg range

Suv For The Professional Or Family Oriented — Love this car! It feels safe - it is quiet and very comfortable! I never have any issues with anyone riding it as tall people fit in the car well. Our children also like the car as they can see out the window.

Overall A Very Good Vehicle. — What can I say, it saved my wife's life in a head on collision, all of the air bags deployed, don't get me wrong she was injured and had to have surgery but if it didn't have the system in place she would have been killed. So we can say that the car gave up it's like to save hers.

Very Nice — This was my in-laws vehicle, I primarily drove it to help my mother in law out when I had gone to stay with them after my divorce... I know sounds odd, but considering they were on my side... The only major thing I heard about was when my MIL got into an accident after the transmission had slipped into neutral

Got It For Wife In 05 — The car was perfect for us, we had 2 girls ant the time and it fit her style needs,function and space. Now 2 kids later with a total of 4 kids we just needed more room and went with an odyssey.Other than that cant complain. If somethings needed to be replaced , example power steering, timing belt etc. that is going to be expensive but you should know that coming into it.

Awesome. I Love It — This is a gold lexus rx 300. It is awesome. Leather interior, metal bars on front an back. Rides like no other, very smooth. Not very fast. V6 engine. Very good stereo. Overall, it is a very good car despite being a 1999.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
