Per our Certified page (tabbed from the edmunds.com main page), Lexus will only sell (certify) vehicles that are 5 years old or less, with less than 60,000 miles. So that should work fine for a 3 year old LX 470. When I search the listings for Certified LX 470's, 164 used ones show up, but they are all '03 and '04 models. But if I search for All 2002 models, some certified ones do appear.
Here's the link if you want to try it yourself. Maybe there's some near your zipcode.

I wouldn't assume the LX470 is a lemon just because it isn't a Lexus Certified Used vehicle. There may be numerous reasons on why the dealer isn't certifying it.
1) They payed too much for it when it came in to their lot.
2) It may have not had all it's services done or records aren't available.
Of course it could have been in a accident also or could be a lemon buyback.
You may want to take it to a another shop to take a look at it for things like body damage, engine wear, shift quality.

#1191 of 1476 LX470 Diesel Engines
May 15, 2005 (11:17 am)
I was in Kazakhstahn last year and rode in a TLC with a turbo diesel engine. I was wondering if it is possible to purchase a Lexus LS470 with a turbo diesel engine and if it would be to the same level of luxury as the US version. If it is possible how would or could that be done. Also is the price significantly more and what is the miles per gallon comparison. I did notice that the diesel engine was much quieter than those i have been around in the USA. Does anyone have any insight here?

LX470's are not available with a diesel option in the US. And they are probably not available anywhere else in the world also.

#1194 of 1476 Vibration/Tire noise
May 16, 2005 (9:24 am)
I don't own a LX470 but I do own a Sequoia and can share that I have had similar issues with mine over the last 2 year. My Toyota dealer was able to get the regional field tech out and after extensive testing they replaced all (5) tires and I had 15k on the odo. The vibration and hum was reduced and it was lot better. Last year I opted to put Nokian Snows on my Seq and they are noisy but they give me great snow traction. One odd thing occured when the dealer went to put my Michelins back on the balancing was way off the mark. It was horrible and they ended up sending it down to their Chrylser dealer who did a Road Force Balancing on the tires and while its still not 100% it is alot better than it was. The odd thing is the dealer installed the new tires and balanced them on the rims. I wonder since I am nearing 45k if the shocks need to be done or something else.
Vibration is not normal but the road noise could be due to tread design and if you are buying a vehicle that has a list of $65k plus then they should fix it for FREE especially since my Toyota dealer did. Next year it should be a TLC.

I guess this means we wait till 2007 or later for the NEW LX, I am disappointed. Does anybody have any solid information on what the NEW LX will offer? The current model is stale and needs more than new colors and more horsepower to get me to trade. I love my 1999 LX, it will have to last another year (or more).
