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

Review

This SUV is built like a tank. Although the ride is not quite as smooth on rough pavement or cobblestones as my old RX300, it handles very well, and is very comfortable, even on long trips. The quality is perfect - no rattles, squeaks, etc. I was surprised by the lack of a change cup and center console storage (which are present in the RX300). Gas mileage is 13-14 mpg, but what do you expect for a 6150 lb. SUV? The rear "barn door" is unusual, but does not bother me.

Favorite Features

The back-up camera and tilting side mirrors in reverse are invaluable.

Suggested Improvements

Center console should have more storage space, like RX300. Should have a change cup. 3rd row seats should store into floor. Should be storage space under floor in rear. The nav system menu in my old RX300 was easier to operate. There are no coat hooks with rear a/c option.
