Transmission issues with the 'rx 300'

2001 Lexus RX 4dr SUV

Over all my Lexus rx300 has had me put more money into it then it really was ever even worth in total. Unfortunately it is irreversible. My Lexus has had a completely new engine plus a brand new transmission. And at times it still feel iffy to me at best. Other times it randomly feels like a strong vehicle. It's very weird. The transmission issue came about after simply parking my car. I went to back out the parking spot and my shifter wouldn't go into reverse. Over a grand later it could reverse again.

Spacious, well-appointed interior in Lexus RX

2001 Lexus RX 4dr SUV

I really enjoy my Lexus. The interior is extremely spacious. The backseat is very roomy and provides passengers plenty of legroom. I'm a new parent, so the backseat space also comes in handy for a baby car seat. The interior is also well-appointed and despite the age of my car (almost 20 years), I feel like I'm driving a modern vehicle. We've had very few maintenance issues, but when something arises, the warning lights are easy to detect and very specific.
