She is 16 years old, so she is not totally in mint condition. But one of the cleanest LX470 you will find. Any dings and scratches are minor. To save everyone's time here are a list of the few minor defects she has:
  • Minor door dings and scratches, but you can NOT tell at first glance. Only after close observation do you see a few minor ones. Easily buffed or repaired
  • Hood shocks need replacement.
  • 2nd timing belt replacement due - no symptoms, just know it is about time (no pun intended).
  • Moon Roof not currently working. Motor and mechanism seems to work fine, but the moonroof cover that contracts is getting stuck on something. Likely very easy fix, but don't have time to do it myself.
  • Previously mentioned, the after-market rear head-rest DVD system is working, but one of the monitors will often not turn-on. We recently had both monitors replaced with brand-new ones, so it is not the monitor. Had mechanic shop look at them while this happened on a road-trip and they stated the monitors worked perfectly fine and stated it was a loose wire between the monitor and the DVD player. Since we were on the road we didn't have time for them to fix it. Since we don't use DVD system often, only for long trips, we haven't prioritized fixing this. Again, easy fix.
  • After-market front off-road fog lights not working. Likely just wiring issue. Again, easy fix. See a pattern here? She just needs a weekend of troubleshooting to fix most of these things, but with last minute move and current workload I just haven't had the time to look at these things.
Other than that, she runs perfectly fine
and is in excellent condition. No low ball offers please. Only serious buyers. Located in Arlington, VA.

Hi there, looking forward to pics. Specifically frame pics to asses rust. Also, can you clarify 'newer shocks'? Was the AHC ditched for a standard setup?

Also, has it had it's second timing belt done? Thanks!

Per your requests, some more pictures. Pics of the undercarriage. Minimal rust seems appropriate for age of truck, I will you experts decide if I am right. No bubbling or holes i can see. As the photos show, the truck looks very clean. You have to look harder to see the few minor blemishes. To save everyone's time, I zoomed in a few of the more notable.
