| ||Model of the car:||RX 300|
| ||General comments:||Although I've always thought they looked like an insect, my wife has wanted one since they came out.[ It had to the pearl white one ] She's had the car about 2 months now and she loves it.[ What's not to love? She had an '89 T Bird! ] Car has 40,000 miles on it and the dealer tells me all the break pads are down to about 25%-30%. Dealer price is about $450.00 not including machining the rotors. They're either crazy or they think the average Lexus owner is a complete moron. I got a set of premium pads at an import parts place for less than $60.00 and it's a 2-3 hour operation. The dealer wants $200.00 for a 2-volumn set of repair manuals. [ I winged my way through it ] I guess I was a mechanic too long to appreciate the move upscale to a Lexus. It's still a better quaility vehicle than my '01 Silverado extra-cab by a long shot. Show me a GM dealer who will warranty a USED vehicle for 100,000 miles?|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Lexus dealers think you're stupid, [ The 60,000 mile service is about $800.00 ] my Silverado gets almost as good fuel mileage, needs about 50 more horsepower, and I think I'm going to have work on this thing!|
| ||Previous car:||I've always been a Chevy man! What does GM have that's similar to a Lexus RX 300?|
