Here’s a 2012 Lexus GX460 that we purchased in Santa Cruz, CA. In the world of automobiles, few vehicles are as synonymous with luxury and reliability as the Lexus GX460. Introduced in 2010, this mid-size luxury SUV has consistently impressed drivers with its comfort, cutting-edge features, and impressive build quality. Fast forward to 2023, and we have an incredible testament to the endurance of the 2012 Lexus GX460 with a jaw-dropping 157,000 miles on the odometer. However, it’s not all smooth sailing; this remarkable journey hasn’t been without its hurdles, as a bad cylinder recently put this Lexus to the test.
One of the cylinders in the engine developed a problem, causing noticeable performance issues. The engine began to misfire, leading to a drop in power and a less-than-smooth driving experience. Understandably concerned, the owner promptly took the SUV to a qualified mechanic to diagnose the issue. As with any vehicle, time and mileage can take their toll, leading to occasional mechanical issues.
Instead of dealing with the time-consuming process of getting the car fixed, our customer decided it was best to sell the car and move on to their next adventure.
