Great SUV in snow. Not too easy on gas though
Transmission started slipping at 117,000. Lexus said time for a rebuild, I took it and had a tranny flush somewhere else, and it shift like new again; saved over $2300 bucks, never had a problem again.
Not that great on gas in city or highway, gas mileage really drops when cold outside.
Handles snow and slick roads better than any 4wd I have ever owned. I have even took it to a local junkyard looking for some small things, and drove it in 10-12 inch mud bogs and crawled right through it, and my Dodge 4wd never got through it that well.
Wish it had adjustable heat for the seats.
Great sounding stereo with CD changer, and subwoofer.
I love the easy to read LCD screen, heater controls are very easy to use.
It has been very comfortable for me to drive, even on long trips. Highway noise is a little more than I wanted, but the radio makes up for it.
Maintenance costs are low as long as you have it serviced at a Toyota garage.
The V6 seems to have plenty of power all the time.
Would love to own another again, don't pass it up if you don't mind paying for gas.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
