Default New LX Owner

Just picked up a 2013 LX570. Fantastic thus far. I've owned a lot of Lexus and this is the most quiet, tank-like vehicle I have ever driven. The seats are so comfortable and the power and smoothness of the car is fantastic. Would like to have a bit more storage (I have the cool box) and an ipod usb jack inside the glove box rather than by the shifter, but other than that I'm in love. I can't wait to see how this baby does in snow but if it is anything like my past LX 470's (and I"ve had many), this will be a great ride rain, snow or shine. Here is to a job well done Lexus. Very nice car indeed. I'm glad I chose this over the competition!!!!

Just got back from skiing and taking a 1000 mile road trip. My entire family (including brothers and sisters) commented on how comfortable and wonderful the car is. I have never had a car so comfortable for so long. My wife, who is not a car person, even said "this is the most comfortable car I have ever been in" and we had zero fatigue when we returned home after 7 hour drive. This was never the case with my LX470, my older LS460 or any other Lexus I have owned. I don't know what it is but the car is butter smooth, has a tank like safety feeling, is very powerful, and oh so comfortable. The only negative I have is fuel economy but what did I expect? I get 17 highway and 13 city using premium which is not too bad for a 3 ton car. Otherwise I could not be happier. Great job Lexus. I would post pictures but I don't know how. Thanks and happy new year all.

Did either of you recent LX purchasers get a good deal or discount off MSRP? I recently started looking. The northern NJ dealer from whom I bought my last Lexus is not offering near the discount he did on my prior ES purchase. Thanks.

Totally agree, the truck rides like a car, very impressed.

Good to hear the 570 is doing well for you. I love this car and honestly I wish I could have bought it instead of my gs, but I'm 19, 470s were still out of my range. I loved the one we had before it was traded in. Gas mileage sounds about right, ice the weather warms up it might get a little better. At least here, there is a winter mix of gasoline that for some reason leads to cars having lower gas mileage, I thought it was my driving but I've been told it was the gas

No doubt is IS the winter gas. It will cut a mile or two off your mileage.
