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

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.

It has suffered several serious problems despite being just five years old and mostly driven on-road. Cracked radiator, broken driveshaft, now leaking power steering hoses. I have owned 10-year-old cars that never had so many problems.
