"I purchased this new in 2001, very few problems until 190,000 miles when the transmision failed ( not due to lack of maintence) This was a known problem in 2000, 2001, and 2002. Most transmision failures were occuring around 100K miles. My choice to replace the transmission was based upon the reliability of the vehicle overal. The price to replace with a factory refurbished unit (4K) was far less money then what I would spend on a used vehicle that had no knowledge or history on. My choice and a good one at that. I would recommend Lexus RX given my experience with my 2001 RX 300 and my 2008 RX 350. Both vehicles like all that I have owned over the years have synthetic motor oil changed every 5k miles."

"This is a California Car and I am the second owner. Well maintained with oil changes every 5,000 miles and serviced by qualified technicians. Has New Battery, New Tires. We are selling our car because we have moved to a community that has golf cart access and we don't need the extra car."

"Love this car. Handles well on the road and is a dream to drive/ride in for a 7+ hour drive. Only drawback is the very short turning ratio when getting around in a parking lot, etc. Does not turn very sharp at all. Heat/AC work great. Is rather expensive on repair/replacement parts but those seem to be minimal. Small enough to park easily, you set up higher than most sedan type cars making it easier to see and easier to get in and out of. Roomy cargo area."

"I bought this as a winter vehicle 6 years ago. It always starts. In northern Minnesota with - 40 degree Temps that says a lot. No rusting. We really salt our roads. That said, I just spent my first dollar on a service bill. It was time for a timing belt change. I debated on buying a newer Lexus but decided I knew this car was incredible. $500 for belt and brakes will keep me driving this RX300 for two more years."
