Lexus RX Reliability

You won't find Lexus RX reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots. So you can tell how much the Lexus RX truly differs from competing car models in reliability.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track Lexus RX reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the Lexus RX was a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Lexus RX has been recently.

Personal experience with my previous car, a Toyota LandCruiser HDJ100. My RX450h is one year old: no problems reported in 18.000 miles. One of my friend has a 10 years old RX300 with 190.000 miles: no problems reported too.

Lexus RX Reliability and Durability: Cons

2004 4dr SUV 230-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
WE HAD A 2004 RX - LOVED EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE TRANSMISSION - EXTREMELY JERKY AND FELT LIKE IT WAS NOT GOING TO GET IN GEAR - THE SUV WOULD LITERALLY JERK AROUND. LEXUS SAID IT WAS FINE AND NOT TO WORRY (NO WARRANTY THOUGH) - NO COVERAGE - NO MORE LEXUS
2002 4dr SUV 220-horsepower 3.0L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
Even after doing alot of research prior to my purchase, I had a major repair just after hitting 100k. The transmission went out and apparently it was very common in the RX300.
