I purchased a used 2014 GX460 with <65K Miles. There were a lot of decent reviews and the fact that this vehicle is related to the land Cruiser 150 Prado sold me. Just took it into the local Lexus dealer, dropped $1,300 on maintenance (71,500 Miles) and found out that the cam tower and front timing cover were leaking oil. So with an outrageous estimate to repair this issue of $4,650 I called Lexus USA. The vehicle was just out of warranty for mileage and time; however this is a premium brand and expected to last for a long time. The cam tower and front timing cover are not maintenance items and never touched, so definitely a defect in these areas of the engine. Lexus said they would pay spare parts and I must pay labor, labor being >90% of the cost, so no go for me. Looked on the web and found out that this is a known issue with this vehicle and engine. Well at least you now know that the premium price is not premium quality or longevity. Other than this issue and poor fuel mileage, I like the GX460, just disappointed in what I would have considered a robust reliable long term purchase. Time to sell this money pit.
LX460 Great Vehicle
This car is great for family with lots of space. It handles great in snow and bad weather. It is a true 4x4 and you can feel the difference.
My Lexus GX 460!!!
I love my Lexus SUV, this car met all my needs and more, the ride is very comfortable. It’s great looking inside/out, inside is very spacious 3 rows seating for 7 people without luggage because the cargo space is very small, but that’s ok because my family size is 4. The beauty of this car is stunning, and has a body that never lose style, inside features are amazing, seats sets to your liking, and seat are super comfortable. Last but not least Johnson Lexus of Durham has excellent service, salesman Joshua Winstone and manger Roger Yin, they score 100 in my book, if you’re in the market for a car check out Johnson Lexus of Durham and ask for Joshua Winstone.👍
Lexuses are very reliable cars
I love this vehicle I am looking to own one soon it’s all about timing I’m open and willing to let the universe continue working on my behalf. I’m currently manifesting this car
Don't do it! Scour internet for issues w/this car
We purchased a used GX 460 in December, drove 3 states to get it. Not two months later the entire navigation system has gone out. Completely black screen. Can't adjust fan speed, can't listen to the radio, etc. We've taken it into our local Lexus dealership for diagnosis and they want over 2k to fix it. Big mistake. We've spoken to Lexus corporate and they want to offer us some pennies to go toward the cost of repair. Not what we expected purchasing from an "award winning" Lexus dealership or from this brand.
Best vehicle I have ever owned.
This vehicle is so luxurious, stylish and so eye catching. It meets all of my needs and some. This is my first Lexus ever and I don’t see myself ever driving anything else.
Am loving it so far
It’s beautiful and am loving it. Never owned a Lexus before! Now that I own one I don’t think am gonna drive any other SUV except Lexus
My favorite car.
This is a great car! The only negative thing I can say is the gas mileage is not great. I have owned several Lexus vehicles, this is my favorite.
We were looking for a reliable car with a third row for our growing family. This SUV meets all of our needs. Updated interior and looks great from the outside.
Most Reliable car I’ve ever had!
Great SUV inside and out, Great for towing, great family car, third row seat. Highly recommend. Mine has a tow package, very good for towing
