My pops and I spent a few hours last Saturday flogging the new RC350, RC350 F sport, RC-F, BMW M4, Audi S5 and others on an auto-x course and around the infield course at the AAA Speedway in Fontana....

Beautiful color on the LX that really compliments the lines, etc. of the LX. We had a hard time deciding between GG and Classic Silver when we bought our 2006.

Personal opinion here...

The GX isn't that much smaller than the LX. Further, there's a world of difference in the look and feel of the interiors. The LX feels like it's worth every penny. The...

First of all, congrat's on the forthcoming family addition. What a blessing. Health to all.

We just sold our 2006 LX470 as the lease came due. We put 45,000 miles on it in 4 years so I have...

So far... knock on wood... that hasn't been the case. The last go around with the dealership last May seems to have finally cured the creaks. We'll see.

But I appreciate the tip.

Thanks Jim. The creaks in their car are actually in all four doors and the dealership seems to have corrected them but I'm going to keep this link handy in case the creeks magically re-appear.

I would agree that Toyota/Lexus quality isn't as good as it once was. I don't know how much of that; however, is due to QC vs. the sheer magnitude of all the fancy electronic doo dads that are in...

I honestly don't recall the capitalized cost on our LX so I can't calculate the residual as a percentage of MSRP.

But... we paid $1,000 less than list on our LX back in 2006. We got a great deal...

That is one option. But you have many.

You can also buy the car out. We had a closed end lease with a set residual. In our case Carmax gave us several thousand more than what our buyout was. ...

Don't read too much into that.

The lease was up. The LX is an extremely capable SUV. But for the buyout cost, etc. it wasn't right for us at this time. We never used the offroad capability and...

She's gone

The lease just came up on our 2006 LX470 and we sold it to Carmax. We thought for a while about buying it off of lease but Lexus was unwilling to move on the price of an extended warranty and given...

MO, and only MO, partially true.

The advantage a Camry has is that you may be able to avoid some accidents that you simply can't in an LX470. Most sedans today brake, steer, and handle much...

As an owner of both an LS and an LX, I can't begin to understand how you would cross shop the two. They're both magnificent vehicles but are two completely different types of transportation.

It happens every year. This is extreme but right now you can buy a GX460 and a GX470... AT THE SAME TIME.

My honest opinion is that unless you're going offroad, or carrying a whole lot of material or people, these things make lousy commuters.

Similar but not the same. There's the answer. 89 vs. 91 isn't going to make a huge difference in power or torque when you're starting out with appx. 380 bhp.
