Front Wheel Drive RX300
| ||Model of the car:||Front Wheel Drive RX300|
| ||General comments:||The style and ergonomics are alright with me (afterall, it is a Lexus), but it's more the drivetrain that I think could use improvement. There should be a smoother accelerating five-speed transmission (coming in a new, larger, redesigned 2003 model -- search Yahoo.com) and more power would be nice. Handling is OK (you should see & feel for yourself). It's good in the rain (and tends to skid a lot), but haven't driven it in snow yet. Also, there should be more safety.|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Engine; seat positioning could be more comfortable (better arm rests would help); 6 CD in glove-compartment; no STOP, PAUSE or PLAY buttons; no steering wheel controls; rough transmission shifter; small wheels; wheel design; mediocre turning radius; should get safety side curtains; although I don't plan on going off-roading, I've heard it (neither, FWD or 4WD)can't handle it as well as others.|
