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).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

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.
