Drive it and You'll Love it.
By Akros on
2004 Lexus GX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
A quality vehicle that leaves little
to ask for even in the base model. It
can be expected to hold value. With a
smooth ride and comfortable interior
this "heavy" SUV gets good MPG for
it's weight,shape and V-8 engine.
Handling is good. Entry/exit using
running boards can be cumbersome.
Fit/finish, both in and out, is
typical high quality Lexus. Stock
highway tires? Switch to Michelin X-
Country tires which, in my
opinion, should come standard on this
type of vehicle. Flush folding rear
seats would be a welcome design
change. Like the rear door,
a "door/gate" that would permit rear
door to convert into a tailgate would
be welcome. Overall..Great SUV
Spare with alloy wheel allowing
seamless rotation. Quiet interior.
Comfortable ride and adept handling.
Overall high quality inside and
outside. Adjustable suspension.
Better stock tires. Power folding rear
mirrors. Redesign items mentioned in
the review (rear door/gate and flush
folding rear seats). Better cabin
storage space e.g. cell phone storage
bin near the accessory power outlet.
Lower rear seat headrests.
