I have a 1999 Lexus Rx300, and the transmission just went out 3 days ago. I called a few places and asked for the cost, it will probably cost about $5000 for this transmission. I though about selling it a few months ago, but the car was so nice and comfortable, I loved the car since I bought it, never gave me any problems until a few days ago. The car only has 109 K miles on it. I was driving fine on I90, 75 miles per hour and suddenly the gear went out, all the gears are gone, even the reverse! the only gear that works now is the low gear (L). it runs about 15 miles / hour. took me 3 hours to get home in the breakdown lane, now in this site, I see so many problems about the RX300 transmission, I am telling you guys whoever has the RX300, SELL IT to save that 5000 bucks. now I don't know what I am going to do, I really love the trucks, I have a beautiful video and stereo system in there, cost me about 11K itself. and I really don't wanna sell it. but I have to pay 5K for a new transmission? and I don't know how long it will last... I feel bad for a luxury car like this and has this major problem.
