Vehicle: 2003 Lexus GX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)

This is my second Lexus SUV. Reliable. Purchased used with higher mileage. Have had no repair issues just basic maintenance like oil changes. My SUV is now 11 years old but looks new and rides like new. We get compliments frequently. Stylish and luxury at is best. Planning to buy my third Lexus SUV soon.

Safety?

Vehicle: 2003 Lexus GX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)

Got this GX-470 2003 back on 04/2003, fully loaded. Since then visited dealer once for turning signal light bulb (got replaced for free even after warranty expiration). Other than that - only scheduled maintenance. Never drove anything better than this (including x5/3.0-2007) before or after. Few days ago my daughter got hit by Civic into passenger side on a street (35 mph, at the time of impact even slower for both cars). My GX fell on driver's side, total loss. My girl landed on asphalt through drivers window under my GX, covered by broken glass, cut her left arm and elbow. Her passenger bumped her head. All bags in my GX are intact. WHAT IS SAFETY?

I've driven this SUV for over 6 years and its the best car I've owned. Service is excellent (especially the Naperville dealer) and the SUV has the best fit and finish of any car I've driven (including Mercedes and Porsche). It continues to drive smoothly after 85K miles. I hope to have it for 200K+.

Hey all. My wife has a 2001 RX 300; I just purchased a 2003 GX 470 that I thought would be mine until my wife took one look at it, and demanded that it be hers!...

Hello msizzle. The selling price that you were quoted for the GX 470 that you are interested in looks reasonable to me, but you still may want to stop by the following discussion to compare it to the...

I have searched and found nothing regarding xenon headlights and 2007 / 2008 GX 470 models. I know the SUVs dont have the option but there are aftermarket kits....
