What should I look for in a used Lexus RX 4x4?

With some 4x4s, you may expect to have to worry about their quality and reliability, but not when that 4x4 has a Lexus badge. There has never been a recall on this version of the RX, and if the results of the annual JD Power reports are anything to go by, buying any Lexus is a guarantee of superb reliability and top-notch dealer service.

In the JD Power survey, Lexus was top make for six years on the trot up to 2006. Such an impressive showing is backed up by the experience of Warranty Direct: in its experience, Lexus models are responsible for virtually the lowest rate of problems of any manufacturer's cars. The RX, it says, is almost faultless. The only problem it has heard of is that the alloy wheels can corrode quite badly.
