For Sale: 2001 Lexus LX470 in Groveland, California

Vehicle Description

This hard-to-find highly-sought-after seemingly-run-forever 2001 Lexus LX 470 looks like a 50k mile vehicle: all original paint (no evidence of any repainting), near-mint condition - it might do well in a club concours.This beauty has never been off-road. The mileage is largely from round-trips from Groveland, CA to LAX (700 miles) and SFO (300 miles) by a 40-year career female airline attendant - who averaged 18 mpg on these trips.She bought out the lease of a close friend in 2004. The only reason it's for sale is that she bought a LX570 from another friend. Certified accident-free by AutoCheck, with an AutoCheck Score of 75 (vs 44-64 norm). Extensive service records and all books and keys; always serviced by Lexus. Always mounted with Michelin tires filled with nitrogen (we have customers with F250s who claim 125k-150k miles on these). The tires have 50% remaining life.This LX470 has always been garaged in a large private plane hangar and has never had a single leak onto the floor. Flaws: all that we could find are shown in close-up photos after the VIN plate photo. Note: this vehicle has been driven an annual average of less than 11,000 miles, the vast majority to LAX and SFO; the flight attendant and her Captain partner always had three other vehicles for short shopping trips, etc. Experts have estimated that LX470s will go 500,000 miles if well taken care of.The Lexus LX 470 is one of the few vehicles that can combine the panache and comfort of a luxury car with the off-road prowess of mountain goat. High-end SUVs from Mercedes-Benz and BMW dont offer serious off-road capability. The Lexus LX 470 is powered by one of the best V8s in the business and offers crisp handling, as well as a luxurious ride. The interior is elegant, well equipped, and the kind of environment you wish your house had. Better still, it is built with precision and the highest quality standards.Changes for the 2001 LX 470 include an optional (which this one has) DVD navigation system that includes a (truly remarkable sounding) nine-speaker Mark Levinson audio system. This package even allows you to watch DVD movies on the navigation screen when the transmission is in P (for Park). The audio portion of the movie can be played over the system while youre moving, though. The sound system also comes with a six-CD changer. This V8 is one of the smoothest engines (of any size or configuration) we've ever experienced, maintaining its stately composure from idle to redline. While its engine and much of its technology (skid control, traction control and brake assist) are shared with the Land Cruiser, the LX 470 does outdo its coach-class sibling with its Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) and Adjustable Height Control (AHC). AVS is a semi-active shock absorber system with five settings; at one end of the range is the float and wallow of a Buick Dynaride and, at the other, the jarring response of a Ford Super Duty pickup. After a setting has been selected, AVS adjusts the ride based on road surfaces, and steering, acceleration and braking input in order to create ride quality tailored to the driver's preferences. There's a reason that there are fewer and fewer of these on the market: they keep getting bought up and exported out of the country where they easily handle the extreme conditions in other parts of the world.Summary: Quiet and refined demeanor, capable backwoods performer, slick adjustable suspension, splendid interior materials, Lexus build quality. We offer this timeless cult beauty for $17,900.
