I listen to music occasionally, but do have a taste to distinguish between something that just makes sound vs something that sounds good.
We just bought a new 2011 GX460, and unfortunately did not test the audio system using a standard quality recorded song before buying like my iPod or standard audio CD.
Both my old sub 40k cars had fantastic music system compared to this. For the price we pay for this car, its amazing Lexus manages to get away with providing a third grade audio system. The sytem sounds horribly hollow or bassy at best, no matter how much you adjust the treble/mid/bass controls.
I have complained to the dealer and they said they will give it a shot. Stay Tuned...
Internal look and feel is fairly good compared to other luxury brands.
- Basic audio system is pathetic when you spend 60k on this.
- Feels Underpowered on the road especially when you start driving normally.
