| ||General comments:||We were extreemly pleased with our 1999 RX300 until it caught on fire.I was driving at night when the vehicle began to loose power. When I noticed a glow coming from under the hood, my 3 passengers and I jumped out of the car. The car burned for over 15 minutes before the fire department arrived and extinguished the flames.The fire was contained to the engine compartment, which was completely destroyed. I was very impressed that the rest of the car, including the passenger compartment, was untouched.We were treated well by both my Lexus dealer and insurance company. In exchange for the generous settlement from Allstate, Rallye Lexus provided:- A new 2000 RX300- An extended warranty- A rental car for the 3 weeks It took to get our new vehicle- All registration fees and expensesThe fact that the damage was confined to only the engine compartment, was a major factor in our acceptance of another RX300. I would strongly recommend the RX300 - unless the fires become a trend.|
