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.
