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.

Summary:

Very awesome and stylish

Faults:

So far nothing has gone wrong with this Toyota Mark X. It is fantastic and very fun to drive.

General Comments:

I have installed a new exhaust pipe, and it is extremely fast and accelerates well. It handles well, and its drifting skills are amazing.

The seats are very comfortable, and there is enough space inside the vehicle. The exterior design is beautiful, and is a combination of the Toyota Altezza and Toyota Aristo, looking very luxurious.

Its top speed is 190km/h (limited), 260km/h (non-limited).

Overall, it is an adventurous car, and it won't be a waste of your money.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
