Lexus is a premium Japanese automobile brand of the Toyota Motor Company that produces luxury cars. The history of this brand began in 1983 in Japan. The new division was originally intended for the United States, but today Lexus brand car plants are located all over the world, and vehicles are sold in more than 70 countries.
The Lexus is rather young compared to other competitors in the automotive market. But despite this, it has already outstripped many brands in sales and quality and will remain on the leaderboard, gaining more and more admirers in the US.
Lexus can satisfy even the most demanding Indiana customer needs. The technology of the Japanese brand is a pleasant surprise and allows you to get a great driving experience, regardless of road conditions.
In motion, it seems that Lexus cars adapt to the driver and allow getting the maximum out of each horsepower. Excellent dynamics and comfort are the unconditional advantages of Lexus. And Japanese reliability, combined with the best price, will satisfy almost any customer. Lexus auto is sure to bring joy to every trip without unexpected costs during ownership and maintenance.
With proper care, any Lexus model will last up to 300,000 miles, and after that, the transmission may give out.
Like any brand, not just luxury, Lexus has problem-free models and less successful ones. But if you know the weaknesses, you can pick the best one, paying attention to details.
The Lexus IS is a reliable car, especially of the 2009-2013 model years when the manufacturer equipped the vehicles with superb components and assemblies. There was only one recall campaign in the sedan’s history. It was associated with rust on the rear brake calipers and was carried out in the first year of sales of the model, and by today all sedans have gotten rid of the problem.
Gasoline engines on this model do not have typical diseases. Turbo diesel may have issues with the exhaust gas recirculation valve, and the exhaust manifold clogs. No worries, these details usually do not need replacement, only cleaning.
The Lexus UX crossover of the 2018 model year became a vivid example that it used to be better.
Firstly, the UX has weak paintwork – for the sake of the environment, all new vehicles today are not painted with as strong enamels as before. As a result, a new car quickly gets chips and scratches. Chrome does not behave the best way either. Secondly, the crossover variator turned out to be too gentle. It is afraid of slippage and aggressive driving – that is, neither for a country road nor the city. And increased wear of transmission parts can lead to an early repair.
But if you managed to buy a used Lexus UX produced before 2018, you get a great and the most reliable vehicle.
The Lexus NX crossover also has several problems. These are the same whims of the variator, a small resource of the steering rack, and paintwork and chrome quality. The latest model years added the rapid wear of brake pads and discs, which are also prone to overheating and deformation.
The engines and all-wheel drive system require regular high-quality maintenance to serve properly for a long time.
One of the brand’s most popular models, Lexus RX, was best in 2009-2015. However, it also has weaknesses. For example, the U660E gearbox can fail. The car is also tormented by rust, which can appear on the hood, sills, and near the windshield.
The Lexus LS executive sedan has paint and chrome issues, and engines are sensitive to fuel quality. Due to the large mass and powerful motors, brake pads and discs require frequent replacement. All the rest is of high quality. The most reliable models were released in 2007-2013 years.
2009-2017 Lexus LX is worth consideration. The weak point is the cooling system – the leaky radiator. The gearbox and the main brake cylinder often require attention if the car goes off-road.
Lexus cars have strong resale values. If you don’t mind driving an older vehicle, after about four years, purchasing a used Lexus is a more cost-efficient deal than leasing.
Usually, you need at least 700 credit scores to lease a vehicle and 600 to qualify for an auto loan. But your credit is always good with Indy Auto Man. Contact our finance department to get your best Lexus deal.
