2023 Lexus LX Safety and Reliability

Lexus LX Reliability Rating

2023 LX Safety

No safety review of the Lexus LX has yet been published by the NHTSA or IIHS in the USA. This isn't uncommon among such high-priced, low-volume vehicles, just as you won't find comprehensive crash test results from the Mercedes GLS or BMW X8.

2023 LX Key Safety Features

Even though it may not have an official safety rating yet, the Lexus LX SUV is a big, brawny vehicle that's stacked with safety gear so we have little doubt that it will successfully shield its occupants in the event of an accident. The Lexus Safety System+ 2.5 ships as standard and includes a long list of driver aids. Every LX 600 has intersection turning assist, emergency steering assist, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, dynamic radar cruise control, road sign assist, intelligent high beams, rear cross-traffic alert, rear pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, and parking sensors. Pedestrian and cyclist detection works in both daytime and low-light conditions.

A suite of ten airbags is standard, and another two are available, taking the total count to 12. Trailer sway control is a valuable extra for a large SUV that will likely be towing at some point, and the LX also gets crawl control with downhill assist control for off-roading. Along with the usual rearview camera is a panoramic view monitor; this is crucial for aiding visibility when maneuvering the chunky SUV.

2023 LX Reliability

Lexus is traditionally one of the best performers in reliability and ownership satisfaction surveys in the US and globally, so this bodes well for the new LX. It scored 83 out of 100 for quality and reliability according to J.D. Power. Only a single recall has ever been issued for the car when the vehicle stability control did not reset after an engine restart if the driver had disabled it beforehand.

Like other Lexus models, the LX comes with a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty and a powertrain warranty that runs for six years or 70,000 miles, whichever comes first.
