great car I looked at Mercedes ml 350 but service is to expensive. the only thing if you are tall over 6 ft seats don't adjust backward or tilt up enough leg room a problem. service is inexpensive its a Toyota .I bought it with a 105000 mile 1 owner
Mi 06 Lexus is incredible SUV, comfortable, nice design, the performance, big cargo, ok with gas, for my budget is good, no expensive like Audi's o Mercedes, but super reliable in all aspects. I will buy another like this one. The engine have 213 K miles and is strong still! Just the regular tune up and that's it. I recomend this SUV for the family, another thing is faster in the freeway in mode 4.
Bought this Pearl White 2006 RX used with 220k for $5500 in 2016. Original list was $38k ! Had noticed this line from Lexus when they came out in 2004 and thought they would make a good used vehicle at some point in the future. This one had been well maintained by the dealer and was a 1 owner vehicle. Noticed when purchased that the radiator had been recently replaced and that steering seemed a tad loosey-goosey but still safe. Everything worked and the drivetrain was strong with the brakes recently serviced. Month later noticed fluid on the garage floor that was coming from the steering rack. Bought a reman rack on line for $190 and had my trusty Toyota tech install for $275. Had the tie-rod ends, plugs, pump and timing belt all replaced after that..(had orig. plugs). New set of Cooper CS5 70K tires and alignment and she runs like new ! Numerous hot weather trips and mileage seems to be averaging about 21.9 but at 75-80mph with the A/C on. Would highly recommend the RX !...Smooth ride, quiet, 18.5 gal tank...Super deals on used high mileage RX's ...and they use Toyota Highlander parts.
I hate to sell a vehicle that's running so well and is paid for. But, it is 10 years old and I want some upgrades the RX 350 has. This has been a wonderful family car with excellent reliability. I've never had a breakdown! It has only been in the shop for oil changes and scheduled inspections, plus 2 minor bumper/fender repairs [repaired perfectly]. As an update, I've put another 13000 miles on the RX330 and the Lexus dealer did the extensive 120,000 mile scheduled maintenance inspection. I also bought some new tires. The SUV continues to drive like it did in 2010 when we bought it. I do more in town driving, so a hybrid 400h or 450h would be a nice upgrade, especially with newer safety items. Unfortunately, the trade-in value of a 130K vehicle isn't very high. So, I'll continue driving an excellent car that has great value to me!
This is an SUV that drives like a car. It's well balanced. Easy to drive. Smooth on the road. Little road noise. Nice top end speed. Great cargo room. Carries my family of five quite comfortably. Great sight lines. The only problem I've had is the dash cracking due to the heat and the cold. Didn't expect this from a Lexus; however, Lexus replaced the dash for free ($2,600 normal cost). They gave me a brand new RX350 as a loaner while mine was being serviced. That was a nice perk. I purchased mine used with 116,000 miles on it. (Got it $3,000 below NADA.) It now has 154,000 miles on it. No problems mechanically. I've read about the cost of maintenance. I never use the dealer (except for the dash), so my cost has be a fraction of normal maintenance. I have an amazing mechanic. He's a genius and very fair in pricing.
UPDATE: My 330 now has 186,000 miles on it. I'm still mostly repair free with the vehicle. The car is starting to burn some oil - not much - but some. I also have a leak somewhere and anti-freeze is leaking out. This is not a problem so far as it is a very slow leak and I just top it off every 3,000 miles or so. Still a great purchase!
