Pros

Everything about this car is wonderful. Safe, efficient, sporty, looks gorgeous inside and out. Dual air bags, leather interior, navigation system, sun/moon roof, storage space, radio control from steering wheel. All service records from when it came off the line, carfax report as well

Cons

if you don't use Premium gas a light can come on. Had mechanic check it out, no issues, just cheap unleaded gas.

Amazing Car With Service Records To Prove It — Absolutely loved this car! Bought it last year and have every maintenance record from when it came off the line, as well as a carfax. Only selling b/c of finances. Rides smooth, handles great,plenty of space! Excellent car.

Luxury vehicle with very low maintenance costs.  Love the interior and all the options that come with it.

Cons

Paint fades after a few years. Plastic key fans crack easily and start to separate.

My Lexus :) — Overall I love my little SUV. Mpg is very reasonable. The low maintenance is great. Looks very stylish. Navigation and Bluetooth is easy to use. The rear power lift gate is also very handy. Power is good. Safety ratings are high which is a plus for me because I want a luxurious and stylish vehicle that is safe for my family.

Very Good — I am a 16 year old who drives this, (formerly dads) and I must say riding passenger was great, but driving it feels smooth (I don't speed) and it can hold an entire family as well as friends. Overall, it is a great car.

I Took A Serious Bath On The Devaluation Of This Vehicle And It Has Turned Me Off Of Lexus Which Is — Bought this car for my wife brand new and when the new models came out six months after I bought it, Lexus had dropped the price by $5000. Worst beating I ever took on a car from a devaluation standpoint. Goes through Brakes as fast as it goes through gas. I have had several service issues...AC would only work when on Low (a disconected hose?)changed the cd player three times...

If You Need A Mid/small Luxury Suv — very reasonable to maintain. small enough to still feel like you are not driving a tank. Aglie and elegant. Service is great, Lexus takes care of everything. Its a good SUV to fit all the kid's stuff and fit in the garage

Smoothest Ride — A very beautiful machine with one of the smoothest drives ever. However, a little more power would help the overall performance.

Pros

It's a Lexus. Reliable. Lasts for a long time. Lighter to driver & easier to handle than most other SUV's.  
Versatile, it's suitable for family's too. Sleek slightly sporty exterior & very spacious interior with a large trunk.

Cons

No complaints honestly. All i can think of is the mpg. It's fair, it's no Prius but it's definitely not a gas guzzler either!

I'm In Love. — I test drove many different SUV's before deciding on this one. In comparison to a BMW X5 for example- the weight of the RX330 is 700lbs lighter than the X5. The X5 is a great car & it looked great etc However, for me personally -it was too heavy, 700lbs too heavy. The RX330 was perfect for me because the power & weight of other models was just too much, but for some people they might prefer a heavier & more powerful vehicle so that just comes down to personal preference.
