Highway driving is not fun, all this truck needs is gasoline and you forget about rain or snow. It drives like a train on tracks. If getting there is your main concern, this will get you there. For city drivers, well this is not the easiest to park and not the cheapest to feed. In off road, well who the hell will drive a vehicle with this price tag off-road. It will amaze you to find that this is much more than you ever believed your vehicle could do.
It is a little expensive. It could use a little more HP. Wish the fuel economy was better. But the ride, the quality and reliability, the safety features, all the electronics, are truly the best. You can't beat it in any of those categories. You have to test-drive this vehicle. Drive all the rest, and then drive the LX. It's truly something special.
I have never been so happy with a vehicle purchase. With all of the features that come with this SUV you wonder if there is anything you would need to add. Lexus did not overlook anything when they built this truck. The suspension even lowers itself so that I can load items into the back of the truck. The only issue I do have is that the front of the vehicle is deceiving and takes some time to get used to. And the tailgate or hatch in the back does not have an opening feature from the remote.
My favorite feature has to be that the navigations/bluetooth system comes with the car. Not only that but it has a camera in the back of the car that appears on the screen when you back up.
My only suggestion is that the tailgate/hatch in the back should be a control on the key to automatically open.
It has everything I wanted in a SUV and more. The backup camera is a must on all SUVs and the navigation system cannot be beat. The smooth ride and large open interior is not found in any other SUV. The best is the lenght that allows it to be biggger on the inside by width and height and smaller on the outside so you can use this car in the city. Not a problem to park. The bluetooth phone system is also makes this SUV functional and safer. The automatic wipers,lights and radio/cd/phone response make this a joy to own and truly makes driving easier. The last and very important feature is the 3 different areas of air supply. Even the 3rd row/cargo area has it's own vents.
I can get more furniture in this SUV than I can in a Suburban without the 5 feet of extra length. The quailty of the interior is phenominal as is the reliability. Never will I be stuck on the side of the road with this SUV!
Move the DVD player to a more accessible spot. Also it would be helpful if the driver or passenger could change the temperature of the rear seating area from the dash.
