My brother-in-law has owned an LX470 for a decade. He bought it new. It's still running strong with 180,000 miles. He's not in a hurry to sell it, but he's been looking at getting a new one.
My sister just sent this note:
We are still looking at a new SUV for Jeff - the current one has 180,000 and is still going strong. We can't even find a new Landcruiser to look at at the Toyota dealers in Columbia and Jeff City. Lots of Highlanders, though. They are getting a few low mileage Lexus LX's in St. Louis soon, but you pretty much have to order a new one if you want it - we have talked to both dealers in St. Louis and one in Springfield - they get like one every two months! Not like it was 10 years ago where there were many to look at on the car lots.
What's the deal with this? Is the Land Cruiser going to be eliminated from the U.S. market? Have they priced it so high now that no one wants to buy it?
