Solid, Worth The Price — Great car. Kind of a chick car though. Performance is good all though the ride is not smooth. You feel all gear shifts and the brake is really touchy. This car is not the sporty car that's fun to drive. It simply gets the job done. It has tons of cargo room. Pretty much the perfect SUV.

Lexus Rx300 Good For Everythig — This suv is a great car. If you want a nice looking, good performing, car for work or for yourself, and you don't want to spend over 30K on a new car, then this car for you. I have one in black which I got for 14K. It has 6 cylinder 3.0L, the engine and has been used overseas in industrial and commercial applications. I have made a few modifications to increase overall hp, I changed tail lights and I bought the new tires. The ride on this car is excellent for suv. This car is a beauty! The Lexus suv quality is still in play with this car. The interior looks awesome, and well built...unlike Nissan Murano or Ford Escape. I get 25-27 city mpg's, and 28-32 highway mpgs on this suv. In conclusion, if you want a beautiful looking car inside and out, of good quality, with a comfortable ride, a workhorse of an engine then go for this LEXUS RX 300.

Pros

Always owned Lincolns. This is the first import, And I'm extremely pleased. Very quiet, comfortable, and smooth for an suv. Other than regular maintenance, There has been NO issues! NONE, NADA, ZIP, ZILCH !

Cons

For an suv, it's on the smaller side, not a ton of cargo capacity. Gas mileage could be better, but it is full time AWD.

All In All, I Wouldn't Hesitate To Buy Another One, Tho They Are Kinda Pricey. — Very nice vehicle, tho on the high end, especially being the Coach Edition. Comfortable on long drives, very smooth on the highway, and extremely quiet for an SUV. The sound system is incredible! Excellent acceleration, and braking is more than adequate.

All the luxury and convenience you would expect from Lexus, extremely reliable, comfortable.

Cons

My Grandma has added a few feminine accessories

Sexy Lexy — A beautiful Lexus RX300 Coach Edition of which my Grandmother is the original owner. It was purchased new at a dealer in South Florida, so it did not come with heated seats, and we do not believe it has all-wheel drive, though we are not entirely sure. It did not come with these options because it was delivered to a dealer in Florida, but it now resides in PA. Those two options are necessities in PA and that is only flaw with this vehicle. I have driven it before and love it. There is not a thing I hate about that vehicle.

Pros

Of all the cars we have had and driven, this SUV drives like a luxury car, not a SUV. Landrovers are rough, other cars drive rough, this is a very smooth riding car.

Cons

You will get spoiled with how much it is like a good riding car, if you ever get a different type SUV.

Love It. — This car has excellent acceleration. It drives like a dream. It is wonderful on long trips, comfortable front seat and back seat as well. Great on gas in town and highway miles. Has huge back cargo area to throw kids surf boards and soccer balls.

Pros

Power, engine acoustics, ride, grip that can embarrass most sedans

Cons

Limited off-road capability, expensive to run, gas guzzler

The Best Soft-roader In Its Class — Very potent MZ-series V6 engine with a healthy output of 220 ponies......offering the best of both worlds thanks to uni-body construction....Off-roading capability hampered by lack of low-range transfer case and lack of wheel travel
