"We are the 2nd owner of this 2002 Lexus Rx 300. It has been a very pleasing car to own. The interior is very well appointed and comfortable on trips. We especially appreciated the heated seats in the winter. Even though we are over the 100,000 mile mark we have had only minor issues come up. The only fault that I find is that the handling in snowy weather or heavy rain is less stable than I would prefer, but the car was purchased in Florida. We live in a rural area of Virginia now."

"after 150,000 miles I have purchased a new windshield, timing belt and 1 set of tires. I have spent less than $1500.00 on it in 15years."

"I am an infusion nurse and live in the Adirondacks of upstate NY. My career requires me to travel in all weather and road conditions. I bought this car with 75,000 miles on it. It now has 318,000 miles and is still running well and looking great! We do add oil now and then, but it does NOT leak or blow smoke. I average 50,000 miles/yr and will purchase another used Lexus gladly!"

"gorgeous car, brought up my babies in this! soooo comfortable and loved the 11 out of 15 years i drove it. still feels as good today as it ever did. buying a brand new one, but will be sad to say goodbye... i felt confident driving it. just the right size, could even squeeze into compact parking space on occasion. as for driving pleasure, i like not feeling the road, if you want sporty suspension it may not be for you!"

"Car keeps on going, no mechanical issues that can't be expected with age. No complaints! Only reason to replace is to get safety features that were not offered in 2002 plus to get better gas mileage. Can't afford a new Lexus today."

"I would love to keep my Lexus but normal maintenance is very expensive and I would like something with all the new bells & whistles that isn't as expensive to maintain. I owe more than what it's worth at this time so I guess I better just keep it and continue to pay the expensive maintenance."
