Pros: "great mileage,sturdy, reliable, fun to drive"

Cons: "a little squeeky from leather wheel"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I purchased my SUV used about 4 years back with 60K miles. It was well maintained by the previous owner, job always done at the dealer. I have it for 5 years now and it is still drive like new. There is only 2 issues no big deal, the leather steering wheel and seats do squeak a lot,and the back seats a little to high. Other than those 2 small issues this is such a great reliable car that the dealer keeps sending me offers to purchase it."

Great car. Hard to even look at anything else.

Pros: "Everything."

Cons: "Cost of routine maintenance is high-ish."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This car is the best car I've ever had and I've had quite a few. It is superior in comfort, reliability and longevity and every other way. Can be serviced at your local Toyota dealership if you find the Lexus dealership too much. It's true that maintenance is more costly than other cars, but the ride and safety in snow and ice make it worth every cent. However, with a good record, insurance is very low cost."

"In my lifetime I have owned numerous cars including a Cadillac but I have to say the Lexus RX330 has been the best car I have ever owned. It comfortable for cross county driving, rides well, reliable and a joy to drive. The interior is stylish and all is within reach. I would recommend this car hands down to anyone."
