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


Review

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.


Best Features

Looks style handling, motor is smooth, transmission outstanding, high speed handling is very safe for big SUV.


Worst Features

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 fold in.

Review

Love the car. Love the reliability and
the performance. Can't wait to take
trips with it, as the driving comfort
is excellent.


Worst Features

Wish the cup holders were deeper to allow taller mugs to rest without spilling. Wish the 3rd row seats folded into bottom of car so they would remain with the vehicle. Often we load up with luggage, etc., but at the destination the back is empty and we could take extra passengers

Review

MY AUTO IS 4 YEARS OLD AND I HAVE HAD
MANY OTHER AUTOS AND I STILL TELL MY
HUSBAND HOW MUCH I ENJOY DRIVING MY
LEXUS SUV. WHEN I TRADE I WILL
DEFINITELY PURCHASE ANOTHER ONE. MY
HUSBAND HAS HAD 2 LEXUS AND LOVES
THEM. AT THIS TIME HE HAS AN EXPLORER
FOR HEAVY HAULING (NOT ALLOWED IN MY
AUTO) AND THE REASON IN RICHMOND, VA.
THEY WOULDN'T DEAL WITH HIM ON A TRADE
IN. NOR DID THE MANAGER EVER CONTACT
HIM. THE NEXT TIME HE PLANS TO
PURCHASE ANOTHER LEXUS. IN ANOTHER
CITY.


Best Features

COMFORT, DRIVE, SIZE AND MOST OTHER FEATURES.


Worst Features

THE SIDE VIEW MIRROR IS DEFINITELY A VERY BLIND SPOT ON BOTH SIDES.
