Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Lexus NX estate?
The NX’s narrow body makes it easier to manoeuvre than most SUVs of this size, but its extremities can still be difficult to place, so take a look at the corners for scuffs and make sure there are no signs of kerbing on the wheels. And, as with any family-sized SUV, it’s worth checking the interior carefully to make sure it hasn’t been used and abused by young family members.
What are the most common problems with a used Lexus NX estate?
Actually, there seems to be very few issues. NX owners are generally a happy bunch, and while they do report the odd problem, we haven’t come across any serious and repeated faults that are worth knowing about.
Is a used Lexus NX estate reliable?
Almost certainly. Sadly, not enough NX owners took part in our 2017 reliability survey for us to gather meaningful data on the model itself, but Lexus as a manufacturer performed exceptionally well, scoring 92% and finishing at the top of our table of 32 manufacturers. Throw in the fact that the NX came with a five-year warranty when new and you get even more peace of mind.
