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.

Pros

Roomy, drives smoothly, stereo pretty good, classy looking car, sporty looking for an SUV

Cons

bumper not hardest to dent, not a car to try and hit the acceleration

Love To Drive It — This car is STILL running well after 8 years of daily usage, and honestly it hasn't had many problems. It is a nice, small, sporty SUV, so it isn't TOO bulky or cumbersome to drive, and it doesn't have the smallness of a sedan-type car. Drives very smoothly, standard stereo system is very nice, and is roomy. The only problem I can think of it is that the bumpers kinda dent easily if you hit anything. Also, if you're trying to accelerate REALLY quickly, you'll most likely spin your tires rather than jump start off.

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.......

Nice luxury family ride

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.

Pros

It drives smoothe, and turns nicely. It's sturdy.

Cons

It doesn't include a direction indicator. It's not very quiet, but it's quiet enough.

It's A Wonderful Car With Lots Of Room For Fun Car Trips With Your Friends. — I just love my car. It's such a great car, and so good to me :) It has a lot of room and doesn't require a great deal of maintence. It's very fun to take on trips with your friends because there is always room for someone, not to mention a nice trunk space for storage if you ever wish to go on a nice trip.

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

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.)

Pros

Great SUV for our needs (dragging stuff to the great uut doors)

Cons

Marginal gas mileage. New ones are too expensive however.

45

Lexus Review — We call it the elephant. Kind of slow to get around, not overly agile, and wide turing radius (compared to the A3). But after 10 years is still dependable and servers as a great general purpose hauler. Not sure I would go for the current versions. They are less SUV and more luxury than at least we need.

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.

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.
