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


Review

Bought the GX after looking at the
Cayenne and the BMW. Better deal for
the money; quality is better. Ride is
stiff over heavy bumps in the rear, but
the ride and cabin quiet is typical
Lexus excellent quality. Engine is
adequate for the vehicle; interior
appointments are high quality. The rear
door looks goofy and is impractical,
particularly when towing our trailer.
Stereo is excellent, and the nav system
is very well-designed and easy to use.
I like the size of the shifter, but
there should be more of a gate between
D and 4. Overall it's a great vehicle;
great size, good power, great quality.


Best Features

Nav system, stereo, interior design.


Worst Features

Rear door; shift gate; allow programmability of entry/lock features, running lights, etc. as in the Jeep Ltd.

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.


Worst Features

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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