"have owned luxury cars since 1980"s 3 -325 BMW"s 1- 525 BMW- 1989- 1- Volvo turbo sedan- worst car in snow EVER!! a hazard!! 1- Scirroco - VW( anyone remember this one?)fast- 1- Buick Regal 1978 ( also one great car- 200,000 miles ran great- looked great - Bought 1999 RX in 2003- with 25,000 miles - garage kept- LOVE LOVE -my 17 yr old - car still don't want to give it up-( going to one of the kids)- not comfortable driving long distances in a car with 236,600 miles!! Very little maintenance- over last 13 yrs- oxygen sensors- - new brakes- starter - fuses- light bulbs- oil changes- washer fluid= good coat of wax q 6 months Everything still works perfectly ( except vanity mirror light - drivers side) heated seats- air conditioner- drives like a champ- uses alittle oil- engine- transmission used conditioning product- drives - shifts so smooth- like new 18-19 mpg until yr ago now 17 mpg- in town regular gas - - informed all seals leaking- etc.repairs too extensive to fix .-- has not been an issue over 60,000 miles later.. think just didn't want to work on car with so many miles . getting ready to buy another one-- just hope it is as good as my 1999 baby.. "let it be and drive til she dies""

"We bought our 03 RX300 about 5-6 years ago. I put a lot of miles on (I am up to 167000) only problem we had was the drive shaft (cause by towing to big of boat) and replacing the catylic converters. A great car, hard to give it up, every body I know that has the same model says the same thing."

"The car was used, but the previouis owner had all the recorded information on maintenance of vehicle since it was purchased in 2001. The vehicle had less than 40,000 miles and was in mint condition inside and out. It drives very well, great handling, roomier interior, I love it and my husband bought this to driver to work. I prefer driving this to my new car. My next new/used car purchase will definitely be a Lexus."

"Purchased in 2008 w/94,000 miles, 3rd owner, online, sight unseen. Thought my husband was crazy, but it looked like new! Has been unbelievably good. Had motor in driver window replaced, and 2 fans in AC, due to noise. Someone told me these fans were the most ordered part. Occasionally squeals when cranked & have had belts replaced, but still squeals sometimes. Steering column makes funny sound when weather is very cold in the morning. Hatch no longer locks w/key clicker; have to use the key. We are not 'car people' so has had no special care; had oil changes every 5000 miles. I don't know what else to do except keep tires rotated and balanced and brakes kept up. Looking for a newer model now so my granddaughter can have this to get her through high school and college. Looks like new inside, minor scratches on exterior. Only replacing because I love my granddaughter who has always said she wanted this car."
