Question about 1999 Lexus RX 300
Well from doing a quick search i see the dealer was right. Read here for 1999 there are lots of people that say transmission failure. the RX 300 was built with a camry transmission that could not handle the torque. They used the same transmission till mid 2000 and most 2001's seem to have a transaxle defect. Also these years have reports of significant problems with the engine. Your best bet is to look into a different generation of the RX. Here are more reviews covering 1999-2003 with the same problem. Click here to see collected reviews. If i were you save yourself the headache and the money in your pocket with the repair bills. Unless that is you like to repair your own vehicle and not drive it for days at a time every few years. Then its the car for you. Wasnt till i saw this problem that i thought about how when i worked in a Auto repair shop how many of these rx 300's we worked on. If you need further assistance or would like more reviews please let me know and i will be glad to assist you further. Thanks, Midwest-tek
