"My wife has never been happier wit a car.
Other than routine maintenence this car was trouble free. The Portland dealership is the best dealership we have ever delt with. We just bought a 2005 to replace this one."
"Other than having to replace the air conditioner compressor, expansion valve, and dryer at 55,000 miles which is the only black mark I have against this vehicle, this '99 RX has been a good vehicle. Never had ANY air conditioner problems on the previous 28 vehicles I had owned since I was sixteen."
"I purchased this '99 in 2002 from a neighbor and knew he had taken care of it. I have only done regular maintenance, i.e. tires, battery and brakes in all the years I owned it.
Runs perfectly and very dependable. My next car will be a Lexus (if I can ever bear to part with this one)!
Never owned a car I loved this much!"
"I have had this car for 6 years and the time has come to move on, however, I will have a difficult time parting with her! We have been through so much together and it's always been so reliable, comfy, and definitely safe! I've had some near accidents, but fortunately it handles so well that they remained only "near" accidents! This is a fantastic car.. so much so that I am getting the newer model!!"
"The vehicle is comfortable inside and out. Gas mileage more than acceptable for a SUV. I have had no mechanical problems with only replacement battery, tires and brakes needed after 7 years. This car handles very well, even in Wisconsin winters. My next car? another Lexus."
"I've never kept a car as long as we've kept our 2000 RX300. We bought it new and we've never had a bit of trouble (kept up to date with service). We are selling this car to our daughter as we just bought the 2007 RX400. The 2000 looks as good as the day we drove it off the lot. The ride is comfy (over 165,000 miles!). Excellent car"
"I love it!! I have ownes numerous domestic and imports and Lexus is heads above the rest. Have done maintenance as required and have had no issues.
Pick up is not the quickest, but why buy SUV if speed is your goal.
Will only buy Lexus from now on."
"I am a die hard Toyota person and this Lexus lives up to all my expectations. Its a great city car and is so comfortable on trips. I've only had to do routine oil/filter changes and I've had it over 3 years. Love it, I will be looking for another when the time comes."
"We have owned this 1999 RX 300 for 4 years. Tranny went out at 120K, been a huge maintenance burden and all of the maintenance is expensive. Very comfortable and nice amenities but not reliable and things that have broken are not things you would expect at this mileage with the Lexus price tag. Had much better luck with the last Ford Taurus I bought. Would not recommend one of these to anyone."
"I bought this car new over 7 years ago. It's absolutely the best car I've ever owned. I've kept her serviced and in return, she's performed for me with no mechanical problems whatsoever. Being handicapped, this is important. I just wish the seats were a bit more comfortable for long distance driving."
"Consider my self a Car Guy, and this is the best in 50 yrs! All that you see and feel + 20m/g around town and 24-26 on the hwy... on REGULAR!!!
Surprised how great the Nav System is in town when you're back-up and need to know if a side street will go thru.
I'd buy a 330 or 350 but no reason to changed with just 80K miles and the ability to use any gas!
From an MG-A to a Mustang Cobra and 3 BMWs along the way, the Rx300 is the best overall vehicle I've owned!"
"This car and the Lexus dealership behind it is the best I've ever had. Really my first non-U.S. automobile purchase, it has exceeded my expectations. After 8 years of ownership, and 90,000+ miles driven, it still looks and runs great and I intend to keep it for many more years. I did make sure to regularly maintain it (every 5000 miles), and that has been costly, but I have never worried about reliability, etc. I'm between a 3 and 4 on performance only because it's not got the best "pick-up" but as far as running generally, it's great!"
