    2013 Lexus GX 460 AWD loaded out, for the right price. Checks in hand. 170k miles. About $7k below some of the others that are similar that I’m seeing, but they are all below 120k. Would you buy it tomorrow? Would really appreciate input from folks who have owned a GX series. I’m wanting more of a daily driver so I can let my Tundra rest a bit, and start having some work done on it. Clean CarFax (for what that’s worth). Obviously if I get there and it’s a dog I’ll walk away, but from the many pics, it’s pretty sharp.

    Anyone have or know someone who’s had one care to give an opinion? Most reviews I’ve read have been good. Biggest complaint is it’s thirsty, @ 17MPG avg. I’m getting 13.4 now.

    Thanks, but the thread is about a GX 460 I want, and am driving 5 hours in the AM to look into. Just wondering if anyone else here has had one, and what they think.

    Well, @TheDuckSlayer says I look like a meth dealer who just "made it big" and he loves it. :l

    Fun little SUV to drive. That V8 will stay in ECO mode until 85, and I averaged 19.9 MPG on the 5 hour drive home.

    Hard to go wrong with Lexus anything; pretty solid vehicles. I prefer the LX460 though. :yes

    Wife had an RX350 if that helps, lot of electrical/computer problems with it, hit the button to open the rear hatch and all the windows go down in the car instead, what's up with that? Lot of other BS things went wrong also for a supposedly well built luxury car.
    IMO way to overpriced and to me Lexus's five star dealer network didn't even rate one star, the cars IMO aren't as good as they claim to be.

    You mean LX470/570? There is no LX460.

    Yep, meant the 470. Just a fancier 80-series 'cruiser!

    Yessir... I couldn't find a good deal on one. This vehicle is the same as a Land Cruiser Prado/Prada(?), overseas.
