Solid Truck

1997 Lexus LX 450 4dr SUV 4WD


This is a solid truck that is as dependable as it gets. However, if you are 6' or taller it isn't comfortable to drive since your knees will press against the lower dash. I continue to have a concern about excessive rocking when driving on the freeway on uneven surfaces. The dealership even replaced the tires and shocks free because of this safety issue. Overall, this has been one of the best trucks I have ever owned.

Best Features

Styling, ground clearance, durability

Worst Features

I recently drove a 2006 LX470. In my opinion, the styling is extremely dated and the truck is underpowered compared to top-of-the-line competition. In my area, folks are opting to buy the Escalade Platinum Edition or Range Rover. The new LX470 wouldn't stand a chance against these SUV's.
