The best car I have ever owned!

The LX570 has more than exceeded my expectations for a large SUV. Safety, power, reliability, comfort and styling are just a few words of many I could use to describe my LX570. The routine service for my LX570 at Park Place Lexus has been exceptional and has added to my enjoyment of owning my 2008 LX570. My vehicle still is "new" in my mind!!!

This is my 4th Lexus LX570. I've wanted something different, just out of boredom, having had four in a row. I keep coming back because this is such a unique vehicle that nothing else can touch. For starters, unlike the other review here, I got mostly in the mid to high teens in gas mileage. On a freeway drive here in the Northwest, expect to get around 19 MPG. The lowest and worst I ever got was around 12. This is however a very big, very heavy vehicle. Here is why nothing can touch it. For starters, the resale is incredible. I paid around $90k for a 2014 new and that vehicle will sell at retail for the high 60s just three years later. The thing is bomb proof and never once has any of them ever gone in for unscheduled maintenance of any kind. The feature list is very long yet it's a true off-road vehicle that can do amazing things in soft sand as well as climb over rocks without any problem. I strongly suggest hunting around for some videos of it running offload. What I don't like about it, are things like the folding seats that limit cargo capacity, the lack of ability to see some switches when driving, such as wiper settings, and it's a bit ho-hum in general. It doesn't have the same status as a Land Rover, but it won't fall apart either. Even Mercedes has more perceived status, but is far more feature-antiquated. Cadillac has terrible resale and still feels cheap by comparison. I couldn't get past the super-ugly looks of the Infiniti even though the specs are slightly better. Seriously, the QX80 needs to run with a paper bag over its head. It looks like something only Willy Wonka would drive. I also think it's less qualified off-road, as are the others except for Land Rover. While Land Rover has a beautiful interior, I got tired of going back in for unscheduled maintenance, just to fix stupid stuff. I thought the Mercedes was a slightly better driving SUV, but the interior and features are extremely dated, not to mention the super-silly iPad on a stick style screen. When it comes to long freeway drives, I've done the entire Pacific Coast several times in LX570s and it's never fatiguing. It's extremely quiet inside, and I'm guessing the quietest of the bunch. It's also very rare on the road, so when you see another, it's always that nod to the other, that they too made a good choice. The cool box between the seats is a must and it's very fast at cooling anything because it's blowing very cold air rather than just a cold space that eventually does the job if you're in the vehicle long enough. The third row is dog-friendly with the seats down, but not up. The others are all better dog cars if your plan is to keep a flat floor. The best part is that this beast is extremely well made and very durable. Everything is overbuilt, and even the seats don't show early signs of wear as they did with my Range Rover Sport. Yes, others will seem faster off the line, but in reality, you're not going to drive this aggressively anyway. If you're serious about buying the very best SUV money can buy, this is it. If you're a performance enthusiast, this is probably not the best choice, but if you're someone who just wants the best without argument, unfortunately it's still the only choice.

Stay away from this insane gas guzzler!

I just purchased a 2017 Lexus LX570 from a guy named Sherif at Hendrick. I came out of a 2016 Range Rover. Stay far away from this Lexus. I drove it to Asheville and then Cherokee. It got about 9 mpg on the trip and only about 5 mpg driving from Asheville to Cherokee. There is no excuse for building a vehicle that's almost $100k with this type of fuel economy in 2017!
