I thought I wanted an LX430, but the
tax incentives forced me to consider an
SUV. I looked at several, and fell in
love with the GX470 "mid-sized" Lexus
SUV. It is definitel "full-sized", but
my very tiny wife LOVES to drive this
car, as do I. I am a big man, and
comfort is very important to me, as
well as style, convenience and
performance. I have owned several
luxury vehicles, and this is my
favorite so far. EASY handling, nice
ride, beautiful sound system, great
finish. I highly recommend this to
anyone looking for a top notch SUV.
Premium sound system, driver's seat
comfort, visibility, easy handling,
VERY short turning radius, quiet ride.
Have the same fully adjustible seat for
the passenger, and offer cooling for
seats, as well as heating.
I have owned a BMW325ic and a Mercedes
ML320 and this car is so far superior to
both that it is astounding. I lost a
head gasket on the BMW from chronic
overheating and the ML320 electrical
system failed 5 times and was almost a
grand for brakes. The Lexus does not
have the road feel of BMW but it is
meant to have a luxury feel and is
silent. You cannot tell if you are going
50 or 100 which tends to cause speeding
tickets. No more repairs for me, Lexus
is the best. Do not buy DVD aftermarket
and IRA Lexus is a shoddy dealer,sold me
after market DVD for 2 grand when
factory one cost 1500! Did not do my
homework on accessories.
Looks style handling, motor is smooth,
transmission outstanding, high speed
handling is very safe for big SUV.
Get the factory DVD not aftermarket.
Sell your car on your own, as tradein
killed me due to some minor dings. Do
not get navigation, it is a waste in my
view, I do not have nor is it safe to be
looking at while driving. 3rd row seats
only for small kids/leg room poor-do not
