Hi guys, I'm looking forward to get a Lexus Nx200t hopefully a F sport model, is there any information regarding Maintenance cost at outside instead of SC & any problems with the Turbo engine? Thanks.

Lexus and Toyota are reliable, no need to worry about maintenance, if you worry about the SC or workshop repair cost, you always can get quotation from SC and compare outside workshop, this is what I usually do.

Comparing continental cars, the maintenance cost definitely cheaper, if you still worry this and that, better get a new or warranty covered car, because you may not suitable for it.

Very depends on luck, my Vellfire serving me 6 years still counting, clocking 60k km now, the most expensive I repair was throttle body repair kit, RM 1k plus.

However, my other 2 conti cars at 3 years only, one of the rear absorber faulty, main and Aux battery kong, 3 engine mounting changed, replaced some coolant hoses, repair cluster, replace engine cover and etc, luckily it’s under warranty and at no cost.

I suggest you to buy local unit comes with remaining warranty, at least you get claimed if anything goes wrong, recond car won’t get this privilege, even you get it insured, they won’t honor most of parts.

Buy and worry later.

Hope this help.

Thanks buddy, I did experienced what you've experienced as well, I'm now driving a Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0, wear and tear consider okay as I don't need drive rektlessly but still, there are problems that you can't ignore and it can't be ignored, sensors, fault codes & etc.

The reason I'm asking about lexus nx200 is because i've heard that my dad's boss is letting go his lexus nx200, i know the mainteance wouldn't be crazy but better know the 'ingredients' before 'eating' it.

I appreciate your comment, bro, I do have a friend who owns a Lexus nx200, he did told me the even you service your car at SC, It wasn't really that exp. Thanks for help buddy.

The car is beautiful, fun to drive, decent power at ECU stage 1, good handling, not very high FC, the only setback is the rear passenger space is too small...

The car is 3 years now, clocking 30k km, still on stock RFT Bridgestone S001, covered by BMW schedule maintenance, the only faulty part discovered is the right rear absorber/mounting, causing rattling sound, part to be replaced by SC once it's arrived, under warranty.

Hunting for 1? I suggest FL 120 or PFL 116, as long as 1.6 turbo and MSport makes the car really handsome...

How much did you get for the recond Nx F sport, japan spec?
Do you mind to share some of your opinions regarding the car?
Am currently driving a VW scirocco as well, I like the nx since I first saw it on the road & starting to liking a family car~

I have heard some of the comments that the maintenance wasn't that expensive compare to others.
I had test driven the nx200t once , there's only one cons I felt that day, the braking wasn't enough for the horsepower.

YA , recon JAPAN spec. recon problem is have to slowly search the best spec with best price. brows.gif
first was plan to get harrier and done research though. after tested NX already get the poison sweat.gif . and from NX L then finally get F sport because of the spec. sweat.gif.
although NX is 235hp which is higher than passat 160hp. the power accelerate is smooth and braking not as responsive as VW. but i prefer NX braking system
because previously my wife used to complain me when i accelerate and brake make her feel nausea . i feel VW is nice for driver but not passenger.
now my wife and kids no complain when i accelerate ! hehe
maintanance wise im not sure , because i just got the car one week but i believe LEXUS is reliable brand compare conti , if u worry about the steering rack, gear box. engine part and etc. u can extend the insurance . around rm1500 +-, because normally dealer will provide one year insurance warranty
i saw ebay selling NX wear and tear spare parts actually reasonable price
once we already drive conti car , its hard for us to drive back non conti car.. so lexus is the best for us..

Yes I understand that ori Vw braking system is good enough, even I ask should i change to another brake pads but they told me Vw ori brake pad is good enough! one thing about volkswagen is that the power is really addictive, especially like your passat and my scirocco, I bought it 2nd hand for RM90k, power wise is damn good! but one thing have to 'take good care of the engine' if you play with the turbo all the time.

Yes, I also got poisoned by Lexus nx design, its very futuristic design & probably I would say the best looking suv on the market yet? maybe just my preference, my dad's boss owns a lexus nx and what he shared is just that the fuel tank is small, compare to conti cars, fuel consumption wise is good just that fuel tank not enough for long journey driving.

Yours is top spec so should be AWD right? As i heard that most of the time if you drive normally, its only activating FWD, if you accelerate/cornering/slipped then AWD will activate, is it true?

Hahah, my dad involved in an accident while he's on the way to kelantan for meeting along with his colleagues in a passat B7, while driving on highway, suddenly heard a 'bang' sound comes underneath the car and suspected to be gearbox issue and suddenly the car lost control, after this incident he hates vw cars very much, as there's a case in Australia(if im not mistaken) a woman driving a volkswagen on the road and all of a sudden the car just shut down and lost control so she bang into a tree and passed away, I wonder if this case is legit or not but yes VW cars are fun at first, after long term running problems start showing out..

Yes lexus totally worth the money! harrier always overpriced ever since then till now.. while rather plus few ten thousands plus for lexus nx.. am looking for ultrasonic blue if possible, i do think that if Luxury/Premium/F - sport all offer almost the same price range as recond car.. y not go for f sport, right? yes the fuel tank issue is the only cons I guess but not really that big issue if not planning for long journey drive all the time.

overall i think the design will be ageless as now I see IS,GS, its still a looker to me.

My friend test driven RX once.. 2.0t feels underpower and very heavy, floaty as well but if want a better version, only 3.5 V6 available.. hmbm, roadtax $$.. hahaa! Nx is good enough, not too large and easy for city drive.

but i thought all f sport variants come with awd?

Yes! Hahaha, ultrasonic blue is so rare but not easy to get a good one in the market, I think to show the sexy bodyline of Lexus nx, colour choices should be silver/grey/blue(my personal opinions)
But grey is not a bad choice either, hehee.
Yes as I look see look see on mudah.my, many of the top spec nx should be AWD, but when you city-driving, it only uses front wheel drive while below 50-60km/h, thats what I heard bout the f sport model but f sport model totally worth the money as the spec is so damn good, the seats are better too.

THe 2019 lexus nx f-sport is much better package, Rm350k+ for f sport, previous model needs around Rm400k+ for top spec.
Definitely the good choice for those bosses out there, hehee.

Have you all compared the full specs with the latest Harrier turbo? Other than the Lexus badge, I believe it can match the NX plus a saving of up to 100k.

Yes I did but the design of harrier never comes to my liking but I never plan to get new lexus nx.. was only planning on 2nd hand local unit, new car too expensive for me.
