Lexus RX 330 Owner Reviews (2)

I purchased this vehicle used at 63,200 miles on it in 2010. I expected a quality vehicle and dependability. It is dealer maintained and babied. But the results of this do not seem to pay off. It now has 126,800 miles on it and in that time I have had both rear wheal bearings replaced, the rear passenger bumper light go out, a license plate bulb go out, the rear struts replaced, annoying rattles, a heat shield replaced, the outside mirrors don't move completely as they should, slight power steering leak, slight transmission leak, a radiator hose replaced, front driver side headlight condensation, and another leak that I can't remember right now. O and two recalls along the way! The paint is of poor quality and if you look real closely, you can see slight rust spots all over the paint. I'm thinking of everything that I possibly can right now to make people aware. The car has never left me stranded or feeling unsafe at all. I don't feel that a car like this should have this many issues regardless of mileage. I will be selling this car to my father to have as his second car. In the next few months I will be looking to get a pre owned Toyota Highlander which is bigger, more reliable, and cheaper. Best of luck!
Does It All
Purchased Navigation System & Upgrade Wheel package.
Extremely pleased. Excellent long distance vehicle -- still feel refreshed after a 9-hour drive. Get 24-26 mpg trips; 21-23 around town. Carries an outstanding amount of cargo.
Five Star Car
This car is Luxury.
From the handling, to the comfort, and the ease of using its navigation, the RX330 is exactly what you would expect from Lexus. Luv it, Luv it, Luv it.
At it's finest! I have the performance package and pretty much most of the upgrades - and I love this car! I've driven newer year model ones and ones made in Canada, and can say that the quality has changed since I bought mine. It handles well in the rain and snow (even with the Good Year OEM tires) and gets fairly good gas mileage. I don't know of another well-appointed SUV/LUV that gets as decent of gas mileage, nor many 6 cylinder sedans. I faithfully put premium gas in it, despite the prices, but it rewards me with better gas mileage and performance.
My only issue is the dealerships (I've used several) for maintenance. I have had Pohanka Lexus pull some shifty tactics and in general the chauvinism reeks. Yes, I'm female, and I know a lot about cars. I can't stand it when they say things and hope I don't know that they're lying to me. In a situation where a repair was performed without my permission, they lied and refused to admit it - and corporate Lexus backed them up. Shame on corporate.
My next vehicle will probably not be something made by Toyota/Lexus - their quality has majorly gone downhill and the dealerships get away with too much.
