Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"It is the best car I ever had and if I could afford another, believe me, I would have a newer model. This SUV is like a little tank in the snow. I live in the east, so we get hammered with a lot of snow and I have never had any trouble getting where I want to go, and that means a lot to me. I love driving it, no matter where I go. It is very comfortable. I had to drive from FL to PA non-stop, except for gas, etc. and would not want to have any other car. I have had my Lexus for 6 yrs. and never had to do anything, but usual maintenance on it. Get a Lexus!!!!!"
"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."
