    This question has nothing to do with off-road, but all about quality.

    Would you consider buying a used Lexus LX 570? If not, why?

    Quality should not be an issue. It is basically just a better version of the VX200. But the styling obviously isnít for everyone

    No. Never again. The VX200 (somilar to the LX but diesel) I own let me down three times on this trip.

    i am considering the same - a nice old lx 570 - the questions for the technical team are:
    1 too many electronics? any electronics that can strand you?
    the 5,7 v8 engine is great! (of course it uses plenty fuel)
    2 up and down air nonsense suspension - must be ripped out and replaced with simple stuff? (i did it on my first vx100)
    3 anything else that can break?
    4 lots of plastics and buttons inside that can fall off - can rip off all the plastic bumpers etc outside and put proper bars etc ..

    Fortunately I bought a 2012 LX570 in a great condition inside and out. Very few vehicles will give you a better ride.
    Difficult to get the smile off my face, even at the high fuel cost...

    Is it the one at We Buy Cars? It is close to me if you want it checked out.

    We Buy Cars sell the cars "as is", there is no support once you drive the car off the showroom floor (last time I checked in any case).

    Just be aware that if you are tall (as in approaching 2m), you may have issues with headroom. Skoonpa drives one and for the life of me I cannot get comfortable behind the wheel.
    Still a brilliant vehicle if you are looking for a barge to take you into retirement.
