I never replaced my 2000 (bought new) keyless battery. It still works fine.

The 2010 is different in that it is always on and always broadcasting a signal even when you are not near the car.

I've had my 2004 RX330 for just over a month now, and I've put 4000+ miles on it here in Iowa. Good areas include high interior quality, excellent starting in really cold weather, great traction in snow and ice, excellent dealer service, decent gas mileage (21mpg), great seats for long drives, but the rear wiper barely touches the glass. Some of the electronic gadgets could be designed better. The 'crusing range' estimate goes to zero, but when I fill it up it only takes 14.5 gallons (capacity is 18+ gallons). The 'avg MPG' info resets every time you fill up, and you can't get avg mileage for a trip, or reset the info if you want to test mpg for a part of a tank. Also, the 'elapsed time' info resets every time you restart the car (so can't use for a trip). And the controls on the steering wheel for the audio really do not do much (no seek or scan, only go from one preset station to another). The SRX I had before was much better with these items, but it was really not reliable. Overall, getting a luxury Lexus SUV with 34k miles for $24,900 was a good deal. I'll see how it goes to 75k miles, then decide on a replacement.
