Default 2001 RX300 lasted 283,196 miles

I am the original owner of the 2001 RX300. The car had 283,196 happy miles before it recently got into an accident and was totaled. Someone ran a red light and hit the RX on the side. The good news is no one got hurt. Before the accident, the car runs great and I think it can easily get into 300k miles.

The RX300 was on the third timing belts, original engine, original transmission. No engine sludge issue. Change transmission fluid every 30k miles. Change oil every 5k miles. The car was well built and last forever.

There are issues with this car: window switch not working properly, one door lock not working, back door hard to open, antenna not going down during winter. Considering this is an 18 years old car, these issues are minor.

Sad had to see this sweet ride goes. But itís time to move on. I just got a brand new 2019 RX450h. Love the new ride! Hope this baby can last even longer than my 2001 RX300.

Default 2001 awd 198,500

Just redid front struts and rack n pinion within last 8 months. Now tranny issues. Anyone know where the fuses for the transmission are? Or the relays, I can't find anything to do with transmission. Thanks

About 260K on the 1999 and about 130K on the 2003.

I guess my 01 RX300 with 61K will last another 20 years

still love the design snd although it doesnít have all the amenities
of the 19 RX, I think the first generation will go down as one of
the iconic models from Lexus golden era
