Pros & cons of the Lexus SUV from a 15 yr. Owner.
2002 Lexus LS
My Lexus lx 300 is the best car I have had. We have a Ford history of approx. 10 cars & trucks. The lx is a smaller SUV but when the back seats fold down we have gotten small furniture & large Costco hauls in it. Longer items can be laid all the way between the front seats without interference with driving. It sits on a small truck frame & has 4 wheel drive. It is a 6 cylinder but can zip u right into freeway traffic. The down side is a big one. The oil sensor signals by gravity. I hope they have addressed this to be more reliable. My light never came on until I drove down a sloped driveway. Despite driving a block home, the damage was already done-no overheating, oil light, nothing. Lexus would not take responsibility for this glitch despite admitting there was no way of knowing your oil light worked unless u drove downhill. It cost us 11 000. 00. At exactly 100., 000 miles & having kept up to date service. So, still have it. Still love it. Still pissed that a 50, 000 car didn't have a better oil notification.
