Planning to buy a 2001 model LX470

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am planning to buy a 2001 Lexus LX470,  GCC specs.

Can anyone advice before buying, in terms of engine and parts, what should I be specifically checking in the car?

Or if anyone can recommend any specialist Lexus garage who can get the car checked.

Any tips would be appreciated.

Best regards,

LX is good but when aged is not very nice and reliable on air suspension, power steering and other electrical gizmos.

I had a friend who sold his LX as he was unable to solve few electrical issues as when they fail, they fail one after the other and keep adding to the maintenance cost.

Even if car is clean, be ready that it will make you shell out more bucks than an average car, but definitely lesser than German luxury 4x4 of similar age.
