2007 Toyota Mark X 250G 2.5 V6

Summary:

Great car if you want Toyota reliablity and Lexus power

Faults:

Nothing so far :) The car has a bit of idle flutter on first start, but once you leave it to warm up, it's fine.

General Comments:

Really nice car to drive and has good power when you need it. Brakes are okay; I feel like there could be some fine tuning to make them a bit more responsive.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2005 Toyota Mark X 250G S pack

Summary:

An understated way of enjoying Lexus type quality

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong, it has been faultless.

General Comments:

This car is perfect for those who covet Lexus quality combined with reliability, but perhaps cannot quite afford it. In NZ the Mark X is is sold as a used import, and therefore is reasonably cheap, eg: mine cost NZD$20,000. A similar aged/condition Lexus such as the IS250 would cost approx NZD$35,000.

This car has one of the best interiors of any car I have owned. A lot of very nice features such as reverse camera and auto parking, as well as nice LED mood lighting system.

Overall, I think it is an under rated model from Toyota. I have only had the vehicle a short while, but am already thinking about upgrading to a newer model (a new shape came out in 2009).

I have seen one or two of these around on the roads, a very distinctive looking car. I think sometimes maybe Toyota keep their 'best' for their domestic market.

How do you find the fuel economy with this?

Toyota Mark X 250G averages from 7.1km/L-9.6km/L, depending on driving behaviour.

Could I get the fuel consumption in MPG?

This computes to 19 MPG (around town or if pushing it hard) and up to 27 MPG if cruising on the open road. Just divide the figure by 8, then multiply by 5, then again by 4.5, to get the MPG amount.

I have a 2015 Mark X on a trip plus a round town driving - 715km on a full tank.

Hi, I just bought a 2005 300G Mark X and so far it's been great, we drove it from Christchurch to Blenheim and we got to 14.7 km per litre; that works out to a shade over 41 MPG! We did 675 km on 3/4 of a tank which holds 70 litres. It's more economical than my wife's 2 litre Suzuki SX4 back in Oz.

Sorry, this is not correct as 7.1L per 100km equates to about 34.4 miles per gallon - unless you are in America where the gallon isn't.

As a general guide I understand 10L per 100km is about 30 MPG.

Hi. I'm looking into getting a 2014 Mark X, just want to ask if there has been any issue about under the chassis? Is it expensive getting a repair for this car?
