Advice for buyers

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

Many big 4x4s have questions hanging over their quality and reliability, so it's a pleasure to come across a car such as the RX. It receives glowing reports in reliability surveys, and Lexus drivers are some of the most satisfied around.

Warranty Direct's reliability figures back this up, with Lexus models responsible for virtually the lowest rate of problems of any manufacturer. The only complaint they have heard of on the RX is a few tailgate latches sticking.
