Which series would you feel more comfortable buying with 200k on the clock? I know many more variables involved just in general if conditions are equal.
Nothing electronic to worry about but the 200 Series does have KDSS where the 100 Series doesn't. There are Pros and Cons to the system but overall KDSS is not a deterrent, you just have to crack the systems valves open 2.5-3 full turns when installing a lift kit. The Lexus LX570 has AHC which is a hydraulic ride height system that can double as a cheap lift should you do a bracket adjustment for the system. I've had both and I prefer the Cruiser without AHC but the LX with AHC does have some perks.Thanks Tex and pardon the questions I am sure these have been regurgitated 100 times here..lol. If you are going to lift one is there certain factory suspension options that make it more difficult like electronic suspension?
And if you need servicing while in Edmonton, one of our Lexus stores has a golf simulator a guest bar and complimentary manicures / pedicures at the in dealership spa!I bought a 2009 LX570 last year with just over 200k miles. Something I learned during my search that helped: with a Lexus, if you know the VIN you can go to lexus.com and create an account, then associate it with that VIN. This will let you see the Toyota/Lexus dealership service history for that vehicle. These entries usually include detailed notes. For instance, there was mention by the detailer about having to clean out lots of dog hair on numerous occasions when the vehicle was brought in for regular maintenance, as well as complaints from the owner about minor interior issues, etc -- things that don't show up in reports from services like CarFax. In fact, most of these dealer visits didn't show up at all on a Carfax report or a similar report I pulled from one of their competitors; so, having access to that info helped fill in a lot of blanks in regards to the vehicle's service history.
I’d take it to the Toyota dealer- I could buy many rounds of golf and drinks for the difference in the labor rate….And if you need servicing while in Edmonton, one of our Lexus stores has a golf simulator a guest bar and complimentary manicures / pedicures at the in dealership spa!
Just the thing for an overlander after a week in the bush.... lol
Rarely tow, if I did it would be a 4K boat two or three times a year about 60 miles one way.Depends what you need the truck for. If you're not towing, I would take a later year 100 over an early model 200. If you're towing, then the 200 is what you need. I think the size of a 100 is perfect, where as the 200 feels more boaty, and a little bit harder to maneuver.
Both great trucks.
