1997 Lexus LX 450 4dr SUV 4WD


New cars being too expensive I set out
to find a young, used 4Runner, I found
the LX450 for the same price. The
additional interior space is great to
have, including the third row of seats
that adults can actually use. The
build quality of this vehicle is
excellent--silent ride, capable engine
and serious 4WD drivetrain. Great
sound system as well. I looked briefly
at the new Chevy Trailblazer but the
Lexus at 64K miles is in better shape
than the Chevys on the dealer lot, and
waaaay less in price!

Best Features

Overall build quality, Lexus-grade leather seats and sound system, quiet, smooth ride, and interior space coupled with serious 4WD capability.

Worst Features

Gas mileage is not good (13 town, 17 hwy), parts from Lexus are costly so use a Toyota dealer for big savings, could use slightly peppier engine at speed.
