RX 300 AWD
| ||Model of the car:||RX 300 AWD|
| ||General comments:||After much test driving, this was the best in class. My 6'5" frame fits great even with the moon roof. Most other SUV's tested drove like trucks or transmitted noises into the cab areas. Even Toyota's Highlander which is built on the same chassis was harsh riding and transmitted the noise of tar strips into the cab. While it is not an off road tpe vehicle - it glides through the snow with ease. The VSC (vehicle skid control) works great if you get the car in a panic slide. The resale value of a 3 yr old RX 300 here in Calif. is very high -within $6,ooo of a new car. The seats are very comfortable on long trips and the kids enjoy the reclining back seats as well. All this and quality workmanship. Make sure you go through one of the internet buying services - their prices were alot lower than what the dealers were offering (and no haggling or pushy salesmen to boot).|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Would like see cruise and stereo sound controls on the steering wheel. Controls are laid out well on the dash, but several of the main controls all look similar and you have to pay extra attention making sure your adjusting the desired control.|
| ||Previous car:||Honda and Mazda vans, Toyota Highlander, Chevy Blazer.|
