2005 Lexus LX Reliability - Consumer Reports
This luxury SUV competes at the top of the SUV market. It's based on the big, imposing Toyota Land Cruiser--itself hardly plebeian with its slick powertrain, comfortable ride, and quiet, nicely appointed cabin. Added features include a height-adjustable suspension and a power-adjustable steering wheel. The LX470 is one of the few SUVs that manages to be both capable off-road and civilized on pavement.


We expect the 2022 LX to have about average reliability when compared to other new cars. This prediction is based on Lexus' brand history and its SUVs.

Overall Reliability

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
