This luxury SUV is based on the Toyota Land Cruiser, itself quite plush and upscale. Power comes from a strong 5.7-liter V8 shared with the Tundra pickup. This engine got only 14 mpg overall in the Land Cruiser we tested. The LX has a comfortable ride and a quiet, plush, and well-assembled cabin. Handling is lackluster but ultimately secure, and the LX is very capable off-road.


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.
