#3860 of 3942 RX 330 Head Lamp Goes Out Intermittently
Feb 16, 2007 (11:22 pm)
I need a point of contact at Lexus dealer in my area somewhere to solve my problem. I have a 2005 RX 330 that the front passenger-side low beam goes out intermittently while driving the car. This is particularly noticeable at night. The lamp goes out only on the passenger side and comes back on the minute we turn the light off then back on. It's a fix-it ticket from the police for sure in my city. The dealer has tried once to fix it but the light never acts up when the service center is open. They say they fixed once but it's still doing it. I've given them a picture and video of the light being out but its not the same as actually seeing it go out (the dealer apparently cannot re-create the scenario of the light going out)
Can anyone help me here?

It would help if we knew what area you are in to recommend a point of contact.

I have purchased a 04 RX330/nav/18"wheels/RSES w/40k miles. Recently I made a trip to canada from chicago with 3 other passengers and their cargo. There was plenty of load on the vehicle and it had no prob reaching upto 98mph(not even ganna mention the mileage I was getting at that point) but after that i had to push the vehicle to get to above 102mph. I know this is no race vehicle but im just curious if anyone has been over 115 mph in there vehicle. Maybe if there wasn't so much extra weight on the vehicle I would have been able to break the barrier i.e. if possible.

These days most vehicles have an artificial top speed limiter, typically set well below the top speed on the speedo. Check your owners manual, 100 MPH sounds about right for a top end limit on SUV of this class.

I was unable to find anything in the owner's manual regarding top speed limiter, however i checked lexus website and the new rx350 is limited to 112 mph, would it have been less for rx330? Has anyone else tried to see what their 330 is capable of in terms of top speed.
#3865 of 3942 Question on 2000 RX 300
Jul 08, 2007 (6:05 am)
I have a 2000 RX 300 that I bought as a CPO vehicle 4 1/2 years ago for my son. Now my wife uses it as her everyday car. It has 88K miles on it. It runs great (I have had to put some $ into it over the years to keep it running but that's to be expected). My question is, am I likely to have any major expenditures upcoming as it approaches 100K? This will be a major factor in deciding whether to keep this car or trade it in. In other words, are there some "usual" big buck repairs that are staring me in the face?

I have a '99 and the next big expenditure is replacing the timing belt and other scheduled maintenance at 90K. Have a independent shop do it and it shouldn't cost too much. I had a bunch of maintenance including the timing belt, 2 new brake rotors, and transmission flush done and my bill was around 900. Make sure to replace the transmission fluid every 15-20K, my transmission failed at 65K but was covered by warranty. I have found that the RX needs very little care and feeding and is very reliable. Of course with age, little things will go wrong, the only repair I have had in the past few years was one of the rear door locks went and I had to replace it. It cost like $400, the part alone (a dealer item) was most of the expense. I plan on keeping mine for years to come.

#3868 of 3942 Bamboo vs. Bamboo Tan

I am considering getting a RX330. I luv the bamboo color. I seem to see a lot of bamboo tan. Does anyone know the difference between the two colors?
#3869 of 3942 2004 RX330 Navigation "No POI in the Area"
Oct 18, 2007 (5:06 pm)
Does anyone get the message (No POI's in the Area) when looking for POI's such as Home Depot, Lowes,Gap,Discount Tire and Cheveron. It is wierd because it can find others like Target. The ones I need it can't find and the Dealer has told me that was the operator. I asked them to show me how to properly imput the info and they then came back with the answer that I needed an updated disc. I agreed to let them update the disc and they said they would then be able to show me that it would work properly. I had never updated it from the beginning because I have always been unhappy with the Navigation System but get so frustrated with not finding anything, I didn't use it much.
They did update the disc and couldn't figure out why those POI's would not come up. They didn't charge me for the disc because they could not make it work to find Home Depot was my specific location along with others. 5 days later they call me and said my system was not capible of being that specific on POI's. My complaint that Lexus ignores is that it will find Home Depot in California but not Las Vegas. Why does my car like Calif??? They did give me an update for free but I am stuck being dissatisfied with my Navigation System that the Salesmen tell you will do everything. We buy luxury cars that do everything but can't find simple POI's. My husband had a Escalade and I would call Onstar because Lexus Navigation System is very dissapointing.
