2005 Toyota Mark X 250G S pack from Australia and New Zealand
An understated way of enjoying Lexus type quality
Nothing has gone wrong, it has been faultless.
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.
300G Premium is the high specification variant of the Mark X. It usually features leather seats, LED interior lighting, DVD player and a back up camera. It also utilises Toyota's parallel auto park assist. Hope this helps.
