biocpu Posted September 28, 2006 Share Posted September 28, 2006 I am thinking to buy RX330/350. I live in Montana. Snow shovel is very efficient, so normally the road is not so bad but early morning/late evening can be slippery. A SUV is more prone to roll over than a sedan - how bad can it be? I mostly drive in a city and would like to know how RX performs at sudden stop or braking (eg, at a stop sign). RX is smaller and lighter than other SUVs - does this mean better or worse than other SUVs on icy roads? From www, I read " The only problem I have with RX300 is that I usually find myself losing control of the car on snow and ice covered roads even with snow tires.". But to the contrary "I drove the vehicle to a empty parking lot with deep snow with ice layer, stepped on the gas and when it reached 40Km/h, I made a sharp turn to the right. The VSC works its magic and brought the car back to my control (I did exactly the same to MDX, X5, and ML320, the control with the X5 and RX was the best).". BTW, there is no Lexus dealership in MT (I will have to get a used car). Could this be any serious trouble? Your first hand experience will be appreciated.
