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


Review

Worried about vibration problem, but test drive before taking delivery eliminated as an issue. First time Lexus buyer; currently own 2 BMWs. Almost bought X5, but quality issues steered me away. Glad I chose the GX470 - head and shoulders better than X5.


Favorite Features

Auto-sensing rain wipers; auto-release steering wheel; interior quality and layout; exterior styling; ride quality; navigation system; Mark Levinson stereo


Suggested Improvements

Power rear quarter window open/close, better 3rd row seat design

Review

I had the RX300 before this, and to believe that the GX470 is twice the car is an understatement. It is truely an amazing car.


Suggested Improvements

Make more room in the back, get rid of the back row seats.

Review

Almost bought a ML500, glad we didn't! Dealership experience was good -- no high pressure, only professional salesmanship. Car is REALLY comfortable fun to drive! Killer navi system -- voice input and touch screen features are awesome compare to ML500's little joy stick thingy. Not too cracy about the swing-out back door at first, but actually like it now since we only use the 3rd roll seat for 1 person (my teenage kid) and he uses the back door for access so that he doesn't have to mess with the 2nd roll seat.


Favorite Features

NAVI SYSTEM, creature comfort (luv this term):-)


Suggested Improvements

More hp -- underpowered comparing to it's peers, folded side mirrors, a wet bar (j/k!).

Review

Got this Lexus loaded with every option except the Lexus Link - heard there were problems with that!!! We hope to own this as long as we still own our LS which is a 93. I know Lexus can make cars that get good fuel economy - why does this only get 15 city and 18 highway.


Favorite Features

Nav system, Entertainment, Ride, handling, performance, features, stares of people!!!


Suggested Improvements

Read door, more leg room in the 3rd row seat, more storage behind the 3rd row seat, and better fuel economy.

Review

Talk about a luxury vehicle! This is the first Lexus I've owned and I'm very impressed. I like the fact that there was only 3 main options to this and everything else was standard. It made shopping for this so much easier.


Favorite Features

Automatic windshield wipers, auto windows and sunroof, ml sound system, overall driving performance, very smooth ride for a suv.


Suggested Improvements

Storage not enough, third row passengers cannot exit vehicle without assistance, not enough trunk space with the third row seats up.
