Awesome Family Car — Reliable car that is reasonably priced in the used car market. upscale feature for a 15 year old car. It's very roomy for passengers. Kids like the reclining rear seats. Trunk space is better than average. Visibility from the drivers seat is exceptional.

Would Buy Again In No Time! — Lovely car. Very spacious. Smooth ride. Not too bad on gas. The high mileage was never a problem. Even with 185K it runs like brand new. the back row is great for 2 child car seats. Otherwise can fit 4 people.

I Am Very Impressed With The Rx300! I Choose Lexus Over Any Other Brand. — I love driving this SUV crossover! It has plenty of cargo space and it is fully equipped with options such as sunroof, CD, climate control, leather, power everything, tow package, roof rack, and much more! There is nothing this Lexus cannot do. All around bang for your dollar! Lexus is the way to go!

Pros

One of the safest vehicles on the road...has 7 or 9 airbags...built like a tank. tons of storage room and comfortable on long trips.

Cons

Fuel economy is not the Greatest...its an SUV

Very Nice/reliable Family Car — Other than the cost of fuel for ALL of us...this is a wonderful vehicle for the owner. Low maintenance costs, handles like a champ, comfortable to drive, and has given No Major mechanical issues in 10 years!! Not much on the acceleration/or speed racing tip...but, again, its an SUV

Amazing Big Car — This is a wonderful suv. The fuel efficiency and handling may not be great, but the cargo space is amazing. The car is very reliable and the interiors look great. The car's ride is very smooth. It does not let any road noise get in.

I Am Sold On Lexus. — Lexus lives up to its reputation and then some. Nothing compares in an SUV for ride/comfort/handling. I am a Lexus fan from now on. buying a Lexus ES 300/330 soon. How do you spell LUXURY????? LEXUS...........great in the snow, awesome sound system, 6 CD player makes music a treat.......

Cons

Transmission woes.

If Not For The Transmission Issues, This Would Be A Great Car. — Good luxury ride. reasonable power. Good mountain car. Nice stereo, loaded for not much $$. Car has a flawed AWD transmission design. $3800 to rebuild. OUCH. Hope to squeeze another 100k+ out of it with that invested. Shares engine, parts & chassis with Camry. My wife likes this car.

Lexus Rx 300 Great Value Used Car. — Clean, quiet, smooth, Dependable. Performs nicely with the 3.0 6 cyl. toyota engine. Replaced window solenoid/ motor..have done all scheduled maintenance..and runs like a top. Gas mileage is not what I thought it would be for FWD...gets average of 17-18..but mostly to wrk and back driving.

It Is The Most Amazing Car I Have Ever Driven Unless It Is The 2008 Rx350 — I love my rx300, in the past i have owned a Toyota 4Runner, however i decided that i wanted to get a Lexus and loved it. It has way better acceleration than my 99 Toyota 4Runner, it handles way better as well. I love the sleek but rugged look that the RX has, it is my dream car.

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