The 2005 Lexus RX 330 represents the second generation of the luxury brand's popular midsize premium crossover. Offered as an all-wheel drive (AWD) model, the V6-powered RX 330 sold quite well over its four year run. Ordinarily, this fact would give the buyer the upper hand when negotiating price, but in the case of the RX 330, its stellar build quality and strong reputation for reliability and low maintenance keep demand, and therefore prices, high. Why You Want It- The RX 330 is appealing on a number of fronts. Where many European luxury brands can wind up saddling their owners with costly repair bills, the RX 330 has an excellent track record when it comes to reliability and repairs. And, because the RX 330 shares so much of its mechanic's with its Toyota counterparts, even when it does need fixing, the costs are usually quite reasonable. The RX 330 also scores points for its car-like ride and handling, which is actually appreciated by those who would gladly sacrifice some cornering ability for a softer, quieter ride. Then there is the RX's styling, which remains current, as do many of its interior amenities and electronics. Finally, there is the Lexus safety and resale story, which in a world of nightmarish used car fables, is more like a fairy tale come true.
