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


Review

Was previous owner of BMW X5. This
car is better in these areas: Sound
system, climate control, NAV,
smoothness of ride, handling in snow,
general comfort, roominess, quietness
of ride, no rattles, rear camera,
reliability. I liked the X5 better
in: handling, braking, PDC, gas
mileage, sportiness, looks,
nibleness/quickness off the line.

Both are good cars, but I'll take the
Lexus for value and all-around
usability. It tows better too because
the size is better suited for it.

Review

SO disappointed in this vehicle.
HORRIBLE ride. HATE the tailgate. We
call it the "weeble" because it wobbles
in turns. CONSISTENT issue with
transmission which they are apparently
unable to fix, as it comes back again
and again. Seriously considering lemon
law on this one, as another reviewer I
saw here. I have few good things to say
about this vehicle.


Best Features

third row seat


Worst Features

new tailgate. improve ride - it's horrible now. controls for stereo, mirrors etc. seems a bit off to me.

Review

I traded in my '04 RX330 for the GX for
I needed more capacity and capability.
FOR A TRUCK, it handles, drives and
rides exceptionally well. The mpg at 18
is expected for this type of vehicle.
The quality, like my RX is superb. The
nav. system is easy to use, and the
backup camera is an absolute must have
due to the inherent blind spots. I made
sure I got the Michelins, and have had
no trouble whatsoever, like I have
often read from other owners. Overall,
for me, I feel it is the best from the
list I chose, incl. the SRX, the
horribly unreliable VW T-Reg, the Benz
and the fun driving, but impractical
and rather unreliable X5. I am so far
very pleased with the GX, and would
recommend it.


Best Features

Quality and resale value are wonderful. The safety features are outstanding, and for such a capable off-roader, it exudes luxury. The b/u camera, as well as the rear entertainment and Navigation system are great. I would buy another. It does what it is supposed to do very well.


Worst Features

The front seats are NOT comfortable for people six feet and taller. The seats are far too short in the legs. Like the RX, they measure 19 1/2 inches from the lower back toward the knee, and any drives over 2 hours are miserable. The wheels also need to be refreshed-they are a bit boring.

Review

consistent issue with transmission
slippage which dealer has been unable to
eliminate. dealer refuses to
acknowledge issue. tailgate is hideous.
ride is like that of a tractor. LOVED
my LX. no similar feelings for the GX.


Best Features

third row seat. that's it.


Worst Features

tailgate like LX. improved ride. redesigned dash & side controls. NO JERKING from the transmission slip issue!

Review

Very comfortable car to drive. Really
enjoy sitting up higher than other
SUV's.
Only complaint is the mileage - 17 on
a good tank.


Best Features

Navigation - It is well located and easy and fun to use.


Worst Features

All the time 4 wheel drive is not a necessity for me. The 3rd row seats are ridiculous - took them out once we tried once to use them.
