Three Lexus Models Top List of Worry-Free Vehicles

Lexus RX 450h

The Cars.com website has released a list of the top 15 worry-free vehicles to own, and Lexus models make up the top three places: the Lexus RX 450h was first place, followed by the ES 350 & Lexus RX 350.

The LS 460 was also included at #13, meaning that Lexus models accounted for almost one quarter of the vehicles in the list.

The Cars.com Worry-Free Index is based on studies by J.D. Power & Consumer Reports, along with feedback from their own website visitors.

We can say that almost for every Lexus made ... . I'll give you the BEST example I own a Lexus LX570 2010 and i had it for almost 6 years with Kilomisters of 240,000 And I've NEVER EVER needed to visit a workshop even though I'm driving it over 180km/h sometimes and breaking like a CRAZY sports car and NEVER put me down ... On the other had I recently got the Audi S7 and it's been just 10 months and all I worried about while I'm driving is the break the steering wheel the tiers and everything and I visit the worshop almost every month ... Funny part about it is its a Sports Car and the dealer are telling me I'm breaking too hard on the car!! I was like are you serious that's how it suppose to be drivin!! PLUS if I'm selling both cars Lexus is gonna be more expensive then the Audi

    Lexus has the best residual value buddy, that's why after I bought one bmw that gave problems like crazy, I switched to Lexus. Even finance companies give you longer terms on a used Lexus, they hold up better than the germans. I love the m6 gran coupe, but I know that it will give problems if I buy one used and I'm not in the position to get a new one. Sell the LX and the audi and get the LFA.

Lexus spoils you (in a good way) because you only have regular maintenance. Having driven 5 different ES and RX Lexus vehicles over 250,000 miles (one pre-owned with 64,000 trouble-free miles) the inconvenience of what minor issues we've had to address is always well offset by the royal treatment you experience in the service department. When I think back to my experience driving 'other' cars, I realize how I've forgotten the frequent problems I encountered on a regular basis; dealing with an "I'm-doing- you-a-favor" service representative and hoping for a decent chair and a vending machine in the tacky waiting area with the blaring TV. But now, I look forward to driving a new Lexus courtesy car or waiting in the plush surroundings of the service lounge while my car is being serviced. I realize how much I have come to take for granted from Lexus. The German manufacturers try to match this, to no avail.

    YMMV. While I agree the Lexus dealer experience is one of the best, it really depends on the priority of the owner. For Lexus owners, the dealer was part of that. For those German manufacturers, they sell the prestige and handling, which the priorities of those owning M and AMG series cars are the antithesis of the RX and ES. With most luxury buyers leasing their cars, reliability and resale factor aren't as big of a factor because of free maintenance and what not. On the resale/CPO end, it is a HUGE plus and it shows in the residuals. But so does Acura, and they're not even as highly regarded.

    In a Motor Trend article in August 2011, Akio Toyoda was quoted "I want Lexus to be the car the most sophisticated drivers want to drive, and once they've driven one they never want to drive anything else." With performance reaching the levels of reliability for which Lexus excels, the numbers are beginning to prove this is becoming increasingly true. We shall see. I eagerly anticipate the all new LS which will reportedly be the result of Toyoda-san and Elon Musk's collaboration. The LFA foreshadows what is to come. Agreed YMMV!

It is great news that Lexus is doing well. I have only had Lexus vehicles since 1995 and currently have a LS 460 and two RX 350s. No trouble at all with any of them. What is troubling me is that LS was a bullet proof vehicle for a number of years only a few years ago - almost at the top. But why is it #13 now? What should Lexus do to get it to be # 1 again? Have the others got so much better or is the sample size too small to comment? Hope the new LS will bring Lexus its former glory.

    Ten of the fifteen vehicles are manufactured by Toyota . . . almost 27% are Lexus!
