Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content

Recommended Posts


I am hoping to get an RX 400h next year.

At present I have an IS200 which has served me flawlessly for 9 years.

When i look at the online forums of some other cars that interested me, like the Toyota Avensis

and Volvo XC60 i keep seeing that there are lots of electronic faults with those cars.

I am just wondering if my time with a faultless Lexus IS 200 car is unusual or if the RX400h / 450h cars are generally

very reliable vehicles for most people?

thanks in advance for any comments.

I've had my Rx400 for over 4 years now. It was just under 2 years old when I bought it and had 48k miles on it. I took out the extended warranty after the final year of the manufacturers warranty ran out as I was concerned about the technical complexity of the engine and drivetrain. I've done an additional 35k miles on it over the time of my ownership. Absolutely no faults whatsoever during that time... Nothing... Which is making my extended warranty look a bit expensive! Sometimes I'm willing it to go wrong to make my warranty worth having! :phone:

I think they are generally pretty reliable but when they do go wrong it costs a lot to repair them.

Hope that helps,
