Bought the car 4 years ago because we thought we would be going into the woods and hauling. Well we never did either, although we live in Chicago so it's nice in the snow. Everything about the car is great, the ride, interior, dependability, lost cost of ownership, except for gas. So my biggest complaint is MPG. I get 13-15 in suburban driving and 15-16 on the highway. For this size car there other options that get 20+ MPG such as the Honda passport. No serious mechanical issues, in fact no minor mechanical issues except a leaky CV boot, which is good since I bought it used. Height/level adjustment is nice but unnecessary unless you are towing. I recommend for people towing/traveling.

This truck is comfortable, smart, and capable. No other car in the world has this quality. No other car in the world has this capability combined with such luxury. I feel on top of the world behind the wheel, and can only think of getting another one for my wife.

I had a 1998 LX470 with several
problems. It always pulled to one side
or the other (steering wheel never
centered correctly) on highway;
emergency brake cable rattled near/at
right rear wheel; tilt/telescope motors
went out several times. Lexus never
could fix either problem; took back
under lemon law. I bought a 2001 just
like it hoping they would have fixed
problems. New 2001 pulls to left at
highway speeds; same emergency brake
cable rattle at right rear wheel;
tilt/telescope motors already replaced
once; transfer case replaced
(vibration); Several rattles interior.
Very disappointing to have basically
same problems on same vehicle 3 model
