Sun roof busted after 4 years, )haven't repaired); dash compter busted after 3 years - $3200 to replace, suspension system failed, into it for $6000 to date, both cat convertors busted, LX wants $1400 Each to replace, chassis raise/lower system never worked, bounces up and down at will; traction control system disengaes by itelf, uncoupling front and back transmission linkage; for last year radio plays statically noise for 60 seconds and then shuts down, no other part of sound system works at all, and on and on...

Pros

One owner, always dealer serviced, outstanding reliability, great color.  No service ever for anything but scheduled maintenance.

Cons

Typical SUV gas mileage.  Lexus dealer maintenance is expensive.

Great, Reliable, Stylish Family Car — We enjoyed this car for the 8 years we have had it. It is very versitile in that the rear seats can be removed. As kids went off to college, we removed them and had more cargo space. We also have a Thule storage rack that goes on top of the car that we can include.

Good Reliable Car — If this vehicle can make it through with a college student driving it, (enough said!) This car has over 100,000 miles on it and still runs like a champ. Just make sure to pay attention to the timing belt service interval.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
