I have been driving this suv for the last 7 years without any major problems, all that was needed were regular oil changes, periodic transmission fluid changes and brakes. Did major tune up recently cost me less than $700. Very comfortable quite ride and very reliable.
Due to this being an old car, I'm sure my rating would have been different if I purchased it new. I bought it in 2013. However since I have had things go wrong with the car, I would not buy another one. I would caution anyone purchasing this car just to get it looked over by a professional before buying. Right now I do not have heat. the lock on the glove box is broken, so I cannot change cd's. Most of the seat clips are broken in the back. The plastic that keep the seat belt from sliding into the seat belt compartment is broken, so I have it pined. Paint and body integrity isn't good. Mechanically the car has been good.
I purchased my 2001 Lexus about 9 months ago with 180,000 miles now I have 208,000 miles. I haven't had any issues the last owner was a family friend that took care of the maintenance very well. My question is what is the average life of the engine how much more miles can I get out of it? I been taking care of the maintenance on car since got it.
