Autotrader Find: 1999 Lexus LX470 With 430,000 Miles

If you’re looking for an old Toyota Land Cruiser or the Lexus LX470, you know these vehicles often rack up crazy mileage numbers — typically on account of the fact that they’re ultra-reliable family haulers that can truly do anything, meaning that many families do, in fact, use them for anything, including towing, hauling, vacations and just around-town transport to soccer practice and such.

This particular LX470 is a fantastic example of that. It’s a 1999 model that’s managed to travel an amazing 430,000 miles in the last 20 years, clocking in around nearly 22,000 miles per year, every year, for two decades. It’s an impressive feat — and now it can be yours.

The question, of course, is: do you really want to buy a vehicle with 430,000 miles? In the Land Cruiser world, trucks with 200,000 miles or more routinely change hands — but 430,000 miles is a totally different planet of mileage. It’s a huge figure — although some would suggest that, if well maintained, it shouldn’t be a big deal for one of these, especially if the miles are largely highway cruising at low engine speeds.

Unfortunately, no interior photos of the LX470 are shown, but the Carfax report notes that the SUV has had three owners, each of whom were high-mileage drivers: the first brought it to 81,000 miles by 2003, the second to 374,000 miles by 2014, and the final to its current state since then. Carfax says the LX has never been involved in an accident, and it looks pretty nice, though no interior photos are shown.

This LX has always been in dry California, a plus for longevity, and it’s currently offered for sale in Orange County by a private seller for just $5,800.
