Hello all.

New guy fromNorway here.


My wife needs a new car, a daily driver and we do like the look of the RX 400h.

Looking at some models here, some single owners with 140-170 000km on them.

For the age they look very good, seats and all, very nice for a car that is starting to get some years on its tail.

But, any tip on what to look out for when buying one?

Have read some things about break failure, but part from that it is not much to find out. 


Maybe it is because they are solid, like a Land Cruiser.

Yes, they are solid. Ours is more than 16 years old with 135,000 miles and still runs like new. I recommend that you look at the maintenance schedule and verify that the previous owner had critical things done, like coolant, oil, spark plugs, etc changed. All recalls should have been taken care of, as well. The dash may have been replaced, free of charge, courtesy of Lexus.
The rear window frames may have broken off, some of the leather, stained or wrinkled, and the hatch overhang weathered but these are strictly cosmetic.

Good luck!

Thank you for the reply and tip.

Looking now at a 2007 with 156878 km, will take a closer look at what has been, or not, done with the car.
