Well I have been thinking of buying an
off road vehicle and I went and demo
non of them sold me on their
performance,then I came across a Lexus
LX-450. WOW!!! what a difference it
made,I drove it on the road at 70 mph
and it was very smooth, no noise, very
solid. I went and follow a small convoy
of vehicles which included the Jeep
Grand Cherokee,2 Chevy z71 trucks a
Yukon and a v8 Jeep Wrangler with 35"
tires.Well my Lexus went thru all the
places that the Wrangler went thru
including MUD....the Chevy,Yukon and
the Grand Cherokee did NOT go or did
Not made it thru the MUD!
All wheel drive and the rear
differential lock mechanisam
May be able to add a Supercharger to
get a total of 300 hp.
We love to drive this suv on the
freeway, and on long trips, it is
quiet and comfortable. No problems,
we did have to order big tires, with
difficulty when we were on our way to
Nebr., no dealers in the midwest, but
easy to get back home.
We do love Lexus vehicles and this is
one of the first SUV's from them, and
one of the best.
Quiet, dependable, easy riding, goes
where you want it to go.
I bought a 97 with 48,ooo miles onit.
I was planning on a landcruiser, butall
the 96 and 97 were at 60k miles plus
for 21 to 23k. I got mine for 25
including tax. the thing is awesome
and in 10 years my kids can take it to
college. all other suvs can chase this
classic. problems to date: antenna, e
solid feel, comfy seats/interior
running boards rusting from h2o trapped
under plastic cover
