2020 Lexus LX 570 Three-Row Review: By The Book Luxury SUV

2020 Lexus LX 570 In Our Opinion: The 2020 Lexus LX 570 is pretty much by the book when it comes to large luxury SUVs. It has a powerful engine, a quiet interior, and terrible gas mileage.

Stopping Stoppers from not

A while ago I had a whoopsie when replacing the front brake pads on the WR.  One fell out when I was carrying out my road test and the poor wee pistons hit the disc.  I cleaned them up and bled the brakes again and they got me through the Dusty Butt and quite a few other rides ok...But not ideal, so I picked up some new ones the other day and today I fitted them up and rebled the brakes.First of [Author: Andrew Thomson]
