Default What's Your(Owners) Review on the '13 LX570?

What do you think of it? What do you like and what don't you like? What need to be added? What do you think needs improvement to make it perfect?

+ If you been wondering why I never bought one even though I was posting so many questions about it earlier this year. Here's my story I was supposed buy one in June which got delayed to Aug because I had a loss in my company which I had smooth out, and then Aug I had to put more $ in my other house in Calabasas to transfer my loan from a 15 year to a 10 year with lower interest rate which got delayed me to October and just yesterday one of my workers at the office made a grave which will cost over $60,000 to fix and there goes my down payment so now I am hoping to get one in Jan with a bit luck I won't have more situations were I have pay out more money...

Sorry to hear your mishaps.
Getting back to the 2013 LX 570.

Needs
8 speed transmission like the LS 460 better yet 10 speed.
Ventilated Seats like the LS 460
Massaging Seats for long trips
More trunk space when the third row of seats are drop down. ( 12" would be nice)
Direct Fuel Injection on the Engine which should be increase fuel mileage
Large 6 piston front ventilated disc brakes.
360 degrees camera (missing the driver side)
Blind spot sensor should be standard

Those two and cylinder deactivation, would make day and night difference in fuel economy....

So far I'm very happy with the LX. 4k miles and no issues at all.
Wish they added blind spot mirrors. For next model I hope they hide 3rd row seats in the floor. Make the dash more modern looking and most important make bigger nav system with better graphics.
Can't complain with mpg as a get 16mpg

I really have no idea, I thought this is normal, as my '12 GX averaged only 14mpg.
Maybe bacause I change oil often. First oil change was at aroung 1000 miles second at 4k miles.

Wow, when I took the delivery of LX, few days later I drove for 2hr from NY to PA, my average mpg was 21! Then it fell to 18 mpg and now it stands at 16.

Look on left front of your center console. There should be a toggle allowing to select between ECO/POWER.

Try it... I am proud to say I've seen 7 mpg...

It takes me a long time to get used to a new vehicle. Rarely do I like them at first, but I am now after a couple months pleased with my LX570. I added the remote start, which I think is going to be terrific in the winter. As my Porsche gets the garage.

I like the ride, the power the handling. (have considered supercharging it, but may not). The fit, finish and build quality is terrific. The distronic cruise control is great; I never liked cruise control until I got the distronic cruise.

I don't like: the lack of storage; the cool seats (why I wanted the LX over the Land Cruiser) do not work; the lack of blind spot alert on the side mirrors is ridiculous for a flag ship model; would like more headroom; extras such as lift and lower suspension probably will never use; extras like the crawl and 4X drive off roading stuff unlikely to be used in the LX market in the US.

Overall a great vehicle and can't find one better, despite my griping. Although, the ventilated seats still annoy me.
