Cannot get rid of my Lexus; luv it.

I love this car. It first took a little getting used to the short turn radius, but I absolutely fell in love with the car. It is the most comfortable to sit in. The leather seats are awesome, more comfortable than any other I have sat in. The sound system is great, the cockpit is very comfortable and ergonomic. It has a sun and moon roof plus a roof rack that does not tower over the car. It drives very smoothly with not much outside noise. It had always been very reliable and I did not have any issues with the car until it turned about 15 years old. At that point I had to replace the transmission. Now there have been sporadic little issues based on the car's age. Even with that, it is still fine because the repairs are less than a new car payment.

3 star review of the 2001 Lexus rx 300.

This was a great car in the beginning when we first purchased it. The comfort of the car is and always was great. Some problems inside the car is the ac. Every so often the ac will go out and will need to be turned off then on again. Reliability for the car is always great. I can always get from point a to point b safely. The only troubles about the handling on the car is a bit annoying. This is because the car will always take off slow and not speed up quick enough. A second problem is that when breaking it always seems a bit delayed. Besides those things the car is very reliable.

Cassettes are coming back.

I love my car. Even though it is old, it has really held up over the past years. I love the cassette player that it has, it is so much fun to get out me and my siblings old cassettes before a long car ride. I do not know if this is inherent to the car but there are also some technical issues: the battery in my car tends to get corroded, the engine and "your lights/blinkers do not work" lights come on with no issues. But my car has passed inspection since I got it 3 years ago and has held up in two minor accidents. Overall this car is very reliable and safe.
