RX330's are so nice. I saw one today at my job and was like dang, it's so nice and different. The rear is a problem though since I have been slightly hearing of people getting pulled over for the rear lights. Yeah they are legal but most cops don't know that.

And the interior is much better than the last gen RX300. It's more like a Lexus interior in the RX330 unlike the Toyota like interior in the RX300. Though there's nothing wrong with that either .

Enjoy your new car and post pics A.S.A.P. .

The thing is nice but it's way overpriced! It costs almost $46K fully loaded and the stripped version (FWD) costs around $36K. I would get the MDX instead of the RX330. Oh I forget, I'm a Honda lover. BTW congrat on the new car.

IMO but to me, leasing is such a bad idea...

Think about it, you make monthly payments for what, 2 or 3 YEARS and in the end, you walk away with nothing. Just doesn't make sense to me...

But oh well, it is a nice car. Good luck with everything.

the whole idea of leasing is that you always drive a new car
and u never need to worry about any problems on your car
because during thoe three years, the car is alwas under the warranty

its not good for young people
but i think its a great idea for parents
it depends on wut kind of drive are you, too!

when you compare leasing the car
and buying a car and sell it aftre three years
leasing is a better option

Leasing is a good thing if you don't want to put down a big down payment and want to get a new car every three years. Just remember you will loose about the same amount of $$$ you pay for the lease (depreciation) for the first three year if you sell your car.

I consider leasing my next car.

Either way can be fine, as long as you make sure you get a decent deal. Here's another huge advantage of leasing that gets very little press: Diminution in Value caused by accident damage. Here's my story, and how I almost got hosed: Last March, I was in a bad accident in my 2002 Camry LE. Got T-Boned on the driver's side by a 5000 lb Chevy Tahoe SUV which was doing 40 mph. Side curtain bags saved me from . . . For over a month, my insurance co insisted they would fix the car, despite it having almost $10k in damage. An undamaged car of similar age + miles was worth 12-14k, depending. My dealership local Toyota dealer (where one relative and several friends work) told me flat out that they'd give me only 6-7k for my car, after repairs, even if it looked perfect!!!

So, as an owner, I'd have had to eat a minimum $6,000 loss if my car had been repaired. On the other hand, if you lease, that loss is the leasing company's problem. One of the few advantages the consumer has in a lease, and this is a big one, is the risk of the residual value being lower than planned for at the outset. Some food for thought... and always read the damned lease before you sign it! Thank goodness the insurance company finally came to their senses and totalled my car.

And all that said, when I got my replacement vehicle, I still bought. I drive 30,000-40,000 miles per year, and at that rate, leases become prohibitively expensive. My three month old 2003 LE V-6 just clicked over to 10,000. Ouch!

THE RX 330 kicks

whenever i drive my moms 2000 RX, that car is crap, then one day we went to get my dads LS serviced and took the 330 out for a test drive, a world of a difference. The turing radius is like 1000 times better, the car is smooth, looks classy, reminded me and my dad of his LS, not some stupid toyota (no offence) but the new 330 is a true lexus the old one was a car they made a little to rugged and not enough for their target crowd. I really want to get the new RX but i gotta wait awhile. As for the person who said MDX over RX 330, go drive a MDX and hten a RX you Will feel the diffence. I drive the 2003 Accord coupe (which i LOVE) but if it were made by lexus, im sure the car would be much better.

just my .02

I dont no what you are talking about Lumpy. Lexus never has any problems wiht their cars (except for the crappy GX i hear). Lexus was ranked #1 again for quality and also, Lexus gets the cars adn new shapes first cause they more respectable. When the car gets old and they are going to redisign it, they give it to Toyota and make the new Lexus look even better. Lexus is the pride adn joy of Toyota.

The flip side is that Lexus gets all the cool new stuff first. After a few years, it filters down to Honda. It's not necessarily a testing ground, but just a basic fact of who gets the newer technology.

That doesn't mean Toyota is **** out of luck either. If you haven't noticed, most new Toyota's have become increasingly quieter and quieter, almost Lexus-like.

It's the same deal with Acura and Honda. Who got the J30 first? Who got the navigation first? Yes, this year Honda got the voice-operated nav first, but in the past, Acura has gotten the latest new technologies.

The fact is, premium cars have higher profit margins so most manufacturers will concentrate on their luxury brands to give them the best new stuff. I guess you could say the luxury market is their testing ground, but its not entirely accurate. It's more like they give the luxury market the newest and best stuff first simply because folks in those markets are more willing to pay for it and EXPECT the newest and best stuff.

not some stupid toyota (no offence) but the new 330 is a true lexus the old one was a car they made a little to rugged and not enough for their target crowd.


The RX is by far the biggest seller in the Lexus lineup by a very very wide margin. Toyota practically invented the modern crossover vehicle with the RX and all other vehicles (Highlander, Pilot, MDX, etc) have followed the RX's lead. Crossover SUV's are the hottest sellers right now. Even the Ford Explorer is slowly getting more car-like features. Toyota saw the SUV craze but realized that 99% of people didn't need the heavy duty 4WD multi-speed transfer case truck body on frame ruggedness, so they created the RX off of a Camry platform and the car was a runaway hit. They're everywhere.

I think Lexus hit the target market dead-on and gave people exactly what they were looking for.
