"I purchased this 2002 RX brand new and now have 130,000 miles on it 9 1/2 years later. I have had NO unexpected problems with this vehicle. I've kept up the all the required maintenance like timing belt, transmission service, etc and as a result have had no problems with my RX. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS VEHICLE and would highly recommend it to anyone!"
"I purchased this vehicle in 12/2006. I have a son that goes to school in the mountains of North Carolina, Asheville to be precise. I have made this trek about 10 time in the last 2.5 years and have had no mechanical problems whatsoever. Very, Very, Very reliable and would not drive any other vehicle if it is up to me to choose. The best in the North, South, East and West"
"We purchased our 1999 RX300 used in 2003 with about 35K on it. It's now 2010 and is still running strong with about 165k miles on it.
Had a couple of minor mechanical repairs (less than a $1000.00 worth). Only had it maintained at Lexus dealer once (1500 bucks!). Just been having it serviced at Jiffy Lube and Oil Stop... seems to be keeping it running OK.
Cosmetically, the drivers seat leather is shredded pretty bad on the side... normal chipping and door dings on the paint. The car still looks contemporary and stylish. The interior is luxurios and comfortable. The ride is smooth and quiet. Great traction from the all wheel drive.
Hope to get at least another 50k to 100k miles out of it.
Highly recommend Lexus RX series to anyone looking for a compact SUV who wants style, comfort and durability. All around good bang for your buck (get a used one from a private party!)."
