1996 Lexus LX 450 SUV 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

This SUV should be put into its own class. By far the most reliable,solid,and safe SUV out there. Plenty of power to trailer a 20 foot boat,go anywhere off-road,carry seven people(5 adults,2 kids). Repairs are virtually non existant. Build quality is far superior than all others. Other manufacturers should use the LX450 as a benchmark. Stereo is amazing for a '96. Paint looks like brand new after 6 yrs. Love the split rear tail gate.,great for family outings,Home Depot runs. Love the New England winters with this SUV.


Favorite Features

Full-time 4WD, great leather,stereo,smooth in-line six,3rd row seating, rear heat for the kids,visability in traffic,vault-like feel while diving the truck, huge moonroof.., feels like a convertible when open.


Suggested Improvements

Better cupholder, more front legroom.,fine if your 6 feet or less. More 12 volt outlets. Heated seat & mirrors should be available on this SUV. Brakes need replacing often but are cheap if your willing to do the work. Other than the above complaints this SUV could not be improved.

Review

My LX 450 has been going strong for 112,000 miles. Comfortable. Great in the snow. Well worth the rather significant sticker price. Gas mileage is fair. Have replaced brakes twice due to normal wear...no other repairs. Great vehicle!


Favorite Features

Too many to name.


Suggested Improvements

A little more leg room and it would be perfect.

Review

I love this vehicle and I think you will too. Someday we will all look back and agree that this model epitomized the luxury SUV concept (before it went overboard). My only complaint is that a few features are missing in a vehicle of this price range. Heated seats and mirrors, simple navigation computer with: outside temp., "distance till empty", etc.


Favorite Features

The off-road capabilities are just awesome!I love taking it out to the trail and watching peoples' jaws drop :). The stereo is really great. In it's black exterior it looks like this car is wearing a tuxedo.


Suggested Improvements

Again, some creature comforts are just a bit lacking: Winter package, on-board information console, more and larger cup holders, better floor mats and a way to easily remove the rear (third row) seats.
