2004 Lexus GX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

With this vehicle, you look for places
to drive. It's comfortable, smooth,
quiet, surefooted and handles better
than most cars. Every feature and
button is laid out where it should
be. Navigation system is by far the
best in the industry. Touch screen
also carries the radio, climate
control & DVD. MB's is frustrating to
use. Vehicle is unstoppable. I've
had journeys through 40" snow storms
with ease and have traversed uphill
dirt piles for fun. Of every 4wd
vehicle I've had, this is the most
capable.


Best Features

Rain sensing wipers and navigation system.


Worst Features

Remove rear barn door and add a little more high end punch. Bluetooth, laser guided cruise control would all be nice.

2004 Lexus GX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The GX 470 is a dream of a car. Solid
handling, plush interior, sharp lines
and great ride for such a short
wheelbase. Very quiet and roomy.


Best Features

I love the styling of the GX470. The seating is also very comfortable (front seats only) for this size of an SUV.


Worst Features

1. More leg room for rear passengers. 2. Hide away third row seating. The third row seats fold to the sides, but still don't allow room for golf clubs. 3. Better gas mileage. (19.2 hwy)

2004 Lexus GX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I was very disappointed in the comfort
and noise reduction that Lexus stands
for. i took it for a test drive. I
driven both a Kenetic and non
KDSS vehicle. There were no
difference just a $4k price increase.
The salesman says only notice if it's
on an offroad terrain. Don't get me
wrong it's a great vehicle but for the
price you are paying you expect a
little bit more quality. I own a '97
4x4 limited 4runner (havent had any
trouble yet). I hardly know the
difference in ride. You can still feel
the bumps on the road and hear the
wind noise on the windows. I guess
Lexus did a great job covering that up
with the nav and entertainment system!


Best Features

Sleek, sporty look. Nav & rear entertainment system.


Worst Features

Ride comfort and outside noise reduction. 2)Care less about 3row seat (this is a compact suv want more room for a third row get a bigger suv..) ,i'll be throwing those 2 out for the dogs. dont wana pay 4 something i dont use.

2004 Lexus GX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Nothing comes close to the build
quality and comfort of the Lexus. It
is quiet, comfortable, and just a joy
to drive. The Lexus just feels tight.
I compared the GX470 to many other
luxury SUV's and the Lexus always won
out in my mind.


Best Features

Navigation and sound system. Leather seats are so comfy.


Worst Features

Rear view out the car is somewhat obstructed.

Review

The GX470 is deceptively spacious and
capable, yet maintains the quality and
luxury that you expect from Lexus. I
purchased a 2003 GX470 the first week
that they were available in December of
2002. I recently traded that one in for
a 2004 model. The ride is wonderful and
the Nav/sound/ and entertainment
systems make the long family trips easy
while the ride is smoother than our
Acura TL sedan. The biggest surprise is
how much room they have. Where does it
come from?


Best Features

Navigation System is easy to use and a must for our future vehicles. Sound system is flawless. Rear entertainment with wireless headphones lets everyone do their own thing without being distrcted. Ride is amazing and quiet. It looks small but the room inside is terrific.


Worst Features

When you fold the 2nd row in for additional room, it actually seems to takes up more space. The seats are more comfortable to ride in than other models that fold into the floor but their is a definate tradeoff if you wnt to have an easily accesible cooler during long road trips.
