2001 Lexus LX 470 2UZ-FE 4.7l V8 from North America
Wheel speed sensors.
Brilliant truck actually. Purchased for $9900 on Craigslist with 130k. Everything on this truck still works. All the powered windows, seats, antenna, vents, heaters, everything, and on a 14 year old vehicle.
The AHC suspension still works properly. The paint looks like it's 2 years old. The wood and leather still look great.
The 4.7l 2UZ-FE is probably one of the best engines produced in the past 2 decades, and easily the best engine I've owned. My current other vehicle is an 06 Tundra with the same engine. They don't use oil (wear very slowly), produce plenty of power, are easy to work on, and as long as basic maintenance is performed, 300,000 miles is common, with 400+k not unheard of.
It is still a pleasure to drive, luxurious, very quiet and smooth, yet with the locking center diff, heavy duty axles, and purposeful design, a very capable off road vehicle, which we are looking forward to using here in Colorado.
Two negatives: the radio volume doesn't work. Probably related to amp problems that were common with this year. Second, the upper rear hatch has quite a bit of rust. Another common problem. I do 90% of all the maintenance on our vehicles and these are easy issues to fix, so no worries.
Bottom line - After now owning one, it's easy to see why you find so many Toyota LC or LX470s for sale with 200k plus miles: quality.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
