BY FAR, THE BEST TRUCK --- PERIOD !!!!

by Ms Furniture from Central California on Sat Oct 18 2014

I call it a truck because that's how I use it most of the time. This is the 1st review I've ever written. After reading ajay's review, I could not remain silent. This is my 2nd LX, both purchased used and I will never buy anything but Lexus again.I had always bought new cars, incl. high end luxury cars & nothing even comes close.The LX is extremely comfortable, reliable & safe; everything comes standard and its very capable off road. The cons:12 mpg (heavy foot} , premium fuel, pricey(get what you pay for) **If you have a teenage driver, this is what you want them in!**

Unbelievably reliable, dependable, and solid

by David Tucci from Saint Charles, Illinois on Sun Oct 01 2017

This vehicle has preformed well beyond our expectations. We just ordered a new one which we are told will be here in three months. The wait is driving us nuts. They are not inexpensive, but is money very well spent. What a great investment in safety, comfort, and reliability

Best SUV I've Ever Driven

by Flooring Salesman from Frisco, Texas on Fri Nov 12 2010

While the gas mileage could be better, it's a great tradeoff for the styling, comfort and convenience of this SUV. Lots of room to carry carpet and wood samples in the trunk area (very easy to remove the 3rd row seats). Got an excellent price for a fully loaded SUV w/52K miles that I expect to keep for a long time. Spent a LOT of time comparison shopping GMC, Chevy and Toyota SUVs and there's no comparison.

my horrible experience with lexus LX 470

by ajay from Atlanta , GA on Thu Jun 07 2012

I had a horrible experience with my lexus SUV LX 470. When I had 105000 miles in my car , the differential separated from the axil of the SUV while driving. I have never experienced this before in my life . The car stopped in the middle the road even before I could pull and the breaks failed to work and my car started to roll by itself with out any control in the slope and came to a stop. The cost of fixing this car was 4000 dollars and I was asked to call the manufacturer by the dealer. They turned me down saying that I am out of the warranty. I hope this would be a lesson to any body planning to buy a lexus

Still drives and rides like a dream

by Susan from McLean on Sun Oct 08 2017

I love my Lexus. It is a tank but in a good way. I feel very safe in it and it is the best driving and riding SUV I have ever owned. I take it on all our long road trips and it is extremely comfortable. Dogs have lots of room in the cargo area.

Best vehicle we have owned!

by MontanaMaslens from Red Lodge, Montana on Tue Nov 20 2018

We are pervious Land Cruiser owners', so we knew exactly what we wanted to purchase! We started looking for our Lexus about 2 months ago, and we finally found the year we wanted. It is in excellent condition! Of course the Lexus is the premium level of the Land Cruiser and we could not be happier! Once you have driven a Lexus, not much else compares, at least for us!
