The Best Small Suv I Ever Owned — The car was a blessing to our family. Never failed to drive us from home to work or on vacation in any type of weather. Sound is excellent, like in a concert hall. Good classical music can be heard w/o noise. Butt warmers are great in winter. AC works perfect too. Highly recommended to everyone.

Rx300 — Mid-sized family SUV, with a V-6 engine, leather interior, premium sound, moon roof, alloy wheels and a roof rack make the Lexus 300 a very comfortable and cozy ride. This car handles really well in all types of weather. It has plenty of power and is a safe car.

Purchased car new in 2001, no problems other than routine replacement of tires,brakes,battery.
Timing belt replaced as suggested in manual. Oil changed every 5,000 miles. Wife was primary driver taking kids to and from school.

Probably The Best Car We Have Ever Owned — Excellant car with great dependability and wonderful ride. Great family car, very comfortable for all passengers with plenty of storage room for vacations. This was the first luxury car we ever purchased and it has proven to be the best car for our family.

Impression Can Be Sumed Up In One Sentence — I like it so much I bought another one, just a different color. Best car I have ever owned with no major problems and 160,000 miles, the last set of tires lasted over 90,000 miles. I almost hate to part with it.

I Love My Rx300 — She has never disappointed me. Started easily in 90 degree washer a well as 10 degree weather. Very comfortable for passengers a well as driver. Drove through snow, ice, rain mud, etc... With no issues. Expensive looking interior with black leather and wood grain. This is an exceptional vehicle.

Good Family Or Single, Comuter — If only gas prices weren't so high, a V8 would be my choice, the Lexus V6 still fits the bill though. Roomy, good handling, quiet ride; it's bee a nice car and I'd consider another Lexus in the future. K

Fell In Love With This Sweet-heart From The First Look In The Carmax Prep Bay. — This Cross-Over is made on a car base so the ride is smooth (with coil springs; rather than truck-like w/rear leaf-springs as on some SUV (Sport Utility Vehicles). Average Highway Mileage: 18.7 MPG (with Regular Unleaded Gasoline). Comfort and Luxury with Lexus Pride in Ownership. White Exterior Color is cool (even under the West Texas Sun).

A Great Luxury Suv That's Easy To Drive And Park =) — This lexus is surprisingly nimble for its height. Going down a curvy mountain road at 50 mph, it felt incredibly stable and safe. The interior amenities are also decently luxurious, with comfortable leather seats and imitation mahogany trim. The only complaint is a soft transmission that sometimes hunts through gears on moderate uphills.
