Sorry but all Toyota/Lexus FWD automatic transmission cars are NOT 4down towable, you will need a dolly.

Flat towing RX300

I towed mine for several years, and it worked fine after installing a transmission pump. I would do it again if I could find a good used one. I think there were 3 year models that were towable.

Good thought, but Remco is no longer in the business of lube pumps and driveline disconnects. (Covid) 1999,2000,2001 were the years that Lexus said it was OK. And, blue OX still makes base plates for them.
