Very dependable, comfortable for in town or trips. Not a good experience at all. Of course I am a stickler for maintaining it. Since I live in Iceland, I need a car that can manage some snowy and icy roads. On-road ride is very good, but handling is somewhat compromised by the tall ride height. I can't remember the last time we've had actual maintenance work on it, besides the regular tires, oil change, etc. The only issue I had was with the driver's window.
It's ten yrs old and very one thinks it's new. Empire motor avoided answering that question three times when asked directly how much the dealer cost was. I bought it used, it's well maintained and has handled like a dream since day one. It has 6 cylinder 3. I guess I asked too much question. Lexus has successfully cultivated an image of building cars that emphasize interior tranquility above all else.
. The standard anti-lock brakes feature Brake Assist, which senses an emergency stop and sends more pressure to the brakes right away. My hubby repaired it and it's working great. I stronly reccoment this vehicle for people who want a 4x4 with comfort, luxury, manouverability, reliability and good milage per gallon, for a low price. It still looks that good inside and out! Can't say enough about the Lexus quality.
But since I didn't get an honest and clear response, I rated them 1-star because I don't feel the dealer as being honest and straightforward to potential customer. Even in lower temps -20 it starts like new. This car is now providing transportation under 10 cents per mile. I have 129600 mies on it and never had any problems. This shortens emergency braking distances for most drivers, because they tend to begin braking tentatively, when there is no time to waste. I have made a few modification.
Bought it as a lease turn-in ten years ago with 42,000 miles on it. The engine might be a touch small for towing, but this is clearly not intended as a heavy towing vehicle, so that is fine. Light outside at night is superb, thanks to high-intensity discharge low beams that illuminate the road noticeably better than halogen lights. Second email I asked about the door on the right front passenger side that appears like it's not aligned on picture, and I got a reply that said 'Car is sold yesterday. Runs nice and smooth, and has a lot of miles on it. My vife loves the car and feels it is both luxurious and comfortable. Lexus builds with the finest materials, and even at 16 years old, friends can't believe its age.
I got up there and there was rust bubbling on the hood and top corner of cab. I took it back and drove seven hours back home. The interior is pure luxury and the controls are well placed. Let the dealer make a few dollars putting on tires with the rest of the fantasy package for customers who are so inclined, but let the rest of us enjoy the braking, ride, and economy benefits of street tires. The rear seat provides plenty of room for adult passengers to ride comfortably.
Lexus treats them like adults, with windows in the rear doors that go all the way down. I'm happy to say I've only just sold it to purchase a newer one. I hate it when you get a price worked out and then, when your all hooked, they then add the dealer cost. The drivers seat is comfortable and easy to adjust so that my long legs fit nicely. Lexus could consider a lower standard ride height, with an off-road package available for people who actually live in the country. This is probably due to a desire to preserve some off-road capability, but most drivers would probably prefer a less top-heavy feeling vehicle in everyday use.
I pulled into a parking lot and crawled underneath it. I saw the car is still for sale. The frame was so rusted that it was flaking off as I touched it. These active safety systems are extremely useful for preventing crashes from ever occurring. It has a smooth ride, no noises, pretty quiet.
It got stuck and wouldn't come up. Neither system ever made its presence noticeable in normal driving. It s comfortable and roomy for assengers and lots of cargo space. The new 2017 models changed so much and it's no longer and attractive car anymore. The meter has now 200. Great for transporting cargo, too. If you want a nice looking, good performing, car for work or for yourself, and you don't want to spend over 30K on a new car, then this car for you.
