2011 Lexus LX 570 5.7 petrol from North America
Pleasant, but expensive and impractical
The car wears out front tires in 30k miles. Other than that, everything on the vehicle has worked well.
Maintenance is difficult and expensive. The fuel tank is too small for a car of this size.
While the interior is well put together, many of the materials feel like they belong in a cheaper car. That said, it is a smooth and quiet car on the road, and has done well off the road. Interior space is good, but not outstanding.
Upon startup, the air conditioner can take up to one minute to turn on. Navigation system and Bluetooth are poorly designed, although reliable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

That vehicle has its roots back in the 40s when the Japanese copied a Willys Jeep they found in the Philippines. So its roots run deep.
But if you are not climbing mountains or navigating the jungles of Africa... it's probably overkill in everyday driving on the mean streets of America. It's big and heavy, and that works against it.

It's a luxury SUV that is used by many wealthy families to take their kids to soccer practice all over the world. It is seldom used in jungle terrain and is no more impractical on US roads than any other SUV. However, it is considered the finest, most well built, best resale value and reliable SUV in the world. That alone should make anyone wanting an SUV take a look at it.

Isn't it also considered to be merely a glorified Toyota Land Cruiser?

Actually the glorified comment has some merit. Someone might see me in it and may be impressed seeing the the “L” in the grille.
