1997 Lexus LX 450 4dr SUV 4WD
I first test drove a Landcruiser from a private party seller and fell in love with the truck. Since it was an older model I had the truck inspected by Toyota, which they found a problem with the rear main seal. The cost of the repairs would have been over $1800. I passed on the vehicle. Until, I found a LX470 which had an extended warranty. I felt the vechile was sound, but later I found that the truck had simlilar oil stain around the rear main seal. Thank goodness for the warranty! The truck has always ran great even with the leak. It's a wonderful family vehicle. I would still buy it again. Just beware of oil leaks!
Plenty of room for passenger.
Wish they could have place A/C vents for the rear seats. You have to put the air on full blast for the back passengers to feel the cool air. One more thing, the lackof drink holders.
