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


Review

The GX 470 is fun and powerful driving
machine. It is a good looker and not
something you see on the road every day.

The comfort and little creature
features of a Lexus are evidnet.

I upgraded from the RX 300 to the GX
470 without regrets


Best Features

Roomy Front Seating. Good sound system


Worst Features

I am not sure if I like the rear door swinging open instead of up. Also a camera would be good for backing up just like in the new RX 330

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


Review

No maintenance problems. No noises.
(Should a "truck" be this quiet?).
Refined yet functional. Superb all
round performance. Very happy with it.


Best Features

NAV display is superb. A must in large metro area plus it includes rural gravel and dirt roads that lead me to favorite mountain trout streams. Off road performance is outstanding on same roads/paths(no rock hopping Accelearation is outstanding. Turning radius is great.


Worst Features

Tailgate design/function is a real loser. Target audience evaluators had never been to Home Depot, football tailgate party, or loading anything of consequence. This will be a real handicap come winter winds and that door gets loose...

Review

Of all the cars and SUV's I have ever
had in the 32 years I have been
driving, this car is the ultimate. I
have had no trouble whatsover with it.
It is fast off the line and rides
wonderful! I love the exterior design
and the original rear end design, looks
so sporty! To think the BMW suv is
15,000.00 more that this!


Best Features

Navigation system, driving comfort, interior design, DVD player


Worst Features

None

Review

Comparing the MDX, ML500, BMW, the
GX470 is without a doubt the most
luxurious of the SUVs. An outstanding
value considering what you get. Lexus
packages limited options because it
already has most options you would
expect. Although the ML500 has better
acceleration, the reliability is
questionable. The Lexus quality is
what won me over.


Best Features

Interior, GPS, Ride


Worst Features

The strong torque gives it decent aceleration, but would like to see a bigger engine.

Review

Well, I wrote a review of my GX470
after only a couple of weeks and I was
not very kind in my remarks. We have
since driven the car on a couple of
long trips as well as city stop and go
traffic and I must admit, the car has
proven me wrong! I love this vehicle
and my wife does even more so. I took
it in for routine maintenance and they
gave me an RX300 as a loaner. I was so
surprised at the difference. It made me
even happier that we had chosen the
GX470. It wasn't even a close contest.
If you buy the GX, drive it a while
before passing judgement. The pluses
far outweigh the minuses! We're hooked!


Best Features

The ride, interior comfort, exterior looks including the Lexus after market wheels with Black L center. Sound system is the best! Navigation system is a must.


Worst Features

Needs a better fold down system for the 3rd row seating. Could use a back up (backing up) alarm system.
