    Lexus UX

    The new UX gives Lexus an entry in the growing small luxury SUV category. Like many of its competitors, the UX is a slightly raised hatchback marketed as an SUV. We found the UX to be quite pleasant and thrifty on fuel, and we like that it’s loaded with standard safety equipment. However, it’s very small inside and the controls are rather fussy.

    Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.
