Great SUV

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

Review

When you unlock the car the lighting seems to softly glow to on. It is very welcoming. The seats are very comfortable and it was easy to get them into the right setting quickly. The Nav must be the best on the market.Loaded with features and all of them are easy to operate. The Mark Levinson system sounds amazing. Controlling it from the steering wheel makes it very easy to use. Cruising at 70-75 the engine is very quite with an MPG of around 19.

Review

Problems: 1) Lexus dealerships stuff all options on vehicle and make it difficult to order without certain options(like third row seats, Lexus Link) 2) there is an unacceptable vibration which occurs at approx 1700 rpm and is accentuated at approx 60 mph...as noted in another review there is no fix yet. I am UNHAPPY.

Review

Many SUV/LUVs to choose from, but this one is the most practical car for my family. Already spoiled by the lexus luxury ride and comfort of my 98'ES, we could not settle on X5 or MDX. I found X5 to be a stylish fun car to drive but way behind the GX's silky ride comfort and space. MDX being a good value SUV but lacks the luxury that Lexus provides. GX is a magnificient blend of luxury and utility accompanied by unsurpassed Lexus customer service, and proven reliability, engineering and technology. It simply works great for my daily use as well as family vacation trips.

Drove the Discovery, RX330, X5, QX4, MDX. none had the comfort and styling as the GX. So smooth. Nav system is intuitive. Xenon lights not available because car height would cause blindness to oncoming cars

Review

I have been driving an ML 320 for the past 3 years, finally I got rid that nightmare tri star. The GX 470 is a completely better SUV all around compare to the ML 320, it behave very well for such a large vehicle. Smooth engine, quite interior and very well built vehicle, if you are in the market for a luxury SUV, give the GX 470 a try. You will like it. Dealers begin to discount now, so shop around and enjoy your new toy. I got a great deal from Lexus of Thousand Oaks ( I got a fully loaded one for way below the MSRP )

GX470 vs. ML320

Review

Recently replaced 2000 Mercedes ML 320 with GX 470. Mercedes had dozens of reliability problems. GX is much quieter, smoother and more versatile in terms of interior layout. Third row seats are easy for one person to remove. Fuel mileage is better than expected at over 17 mpg in mixed driving.

Very nice, but needs some tweaks

Review

Driving this car is like piloting a cloud. Incredible ride - very quiet and very smooth! The 3rd row seating is a bit of a joke though. I'm only 5'7" and I couldn't bare to sit back there for more than 10 minutes. There's no way you could get 3 adults back there comfortably. Plenty of room on the 2nd row of seats, so much so that they should have moved those forward 3 inches to give the 3rd row more room. The Radio controls kinda suck since they put many of them on the video display screen which takes a long time to navigate, and a lot of attention which would be better spent driving.

Review

The quality of this automobile is unsurpassed. We had the opportunity to take an offroading class with Landrover. As it is a remarkable SUV, it is simply that, an SUV. The Lexus GX deserves the title LUV! It's smooth quite ride, amazing cabin appointments, and functionality are stellar. We can't drive it enough!

Lexus' New SUV

Review

My wife and I just purchased the new lexus gx. So far it is enjoyable but I am now looking to purchase the Porsche Cayenne. The Lexus is smooth and navigational system easy to use. I love the engine but maybe a little more horspower would be better. We didn't like that there are no xenon head lamps or integrated turn signals in the mirrors. Otherwise, the lexus is a great competitor and should last for years.
