Bought the car new in 2002 now have 175,000 miles So have very good idea about this car.
Had to replace 2 shafts due to rusted or damaged antilock sensors.
I was told that the sensor is an integral part of the shaft and when it fails you must replace the shaft, this model has 4 shafts also Had to replace the main drive shaft due to loose joints but in general car is very good.
Body has almost no sign of rust, driving is very good.
If you consider buying a new Lexus check the shafts issue as this was my problem with the car.

My RX300 2002 Lexus has a wonderful ride and looks great even after 11 years. Well, that is where it all stops. I have spent more on this vehicle than any other car in my 53 years of driving. The transmission has been replaced, the motor on the antennae died, the front headlights go out frequently and sometimes the cruise control just stops when going up a hill. I'm taking it in next week to prepare for putting out more money.

I/we purchased this RX300 (also had a 1999) back in 2002 and this has been the reliable vehicle I've ever owned. No major or minor problems with this vehicle. I'm just now starting to have some under the dash noise like something is loose on the drivers side...anyone know what this might be?

The computer console screen that controls the radio and displays the heating and air temperature settings. The AC works but you have no idea what the setting actually is. The radio does not work at all.

I checked all the fuses and they are fine. The cost to replace this component is $ 1,500.00. It acts like a loose wire or a fuse attached to the screen.

Has anyone had any similar experience that had a simple fix?
