Horrible engines, do not buy!

All I can say is do your homework! Just after I rolled over 100,00 miles my engine threw a rod and now I am getting another engine put in. I ran a full synthetic oil for 22000 miles and did not think that Lexus would have problems like this with this mileage. All I can say is before you buy do your research on Lexus oil gel/sludge.
Great for snowy climates, comfortable on long trips.
Other than better motors and gas mileage everything else seems to be in order. Looks like the motor problem has been fixed but would not recommend buying anything before 2003.
