1999 Lexus LX 470 4dr SUV AWD


Bought this vehicle used from repeat owner of LX 470s who also loves the LX 470. We have driven it in the Rocky Mountains and Northern Michigan in various extreme weather and road conditions and it hardly skipped a heartbeat. Then the problems. Front wheel portion of AWD failed completely without warning and complete and thorough maintenance & records upkeep. No reason, just failed with less than 120K miles on vehicle. Lexus Company left me dry and lacking enthusiasm for its continued reliability stating I should have bought extended warranty. Chagrined that a seemingly top notch vehicle of this caliber has such a major problem with so few miles, but goes to show failure happens

Best Features

Overall very compfortable for long drives or short runs. Easy for rear access for dogs and cargo. Handles extremely well in deep snow & inclement weather. A joy to drive.

Worst Features

Better customer follow up. When in for repairs (undriveable at a Toyota dealer) had to wait for 10 days for repair which of course drove up costs for rental and lodging due to wrong parts, or other ordering repair confusion. Not the best recommendation for a vehicle of this class and caliber.
