AS GOOD AS IT GETS
By mitchell rowe on
2005 Lexus GX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
The gx has a way of adapting to the driver's personality. We'll call it a friendly machine. When it snowed last week, I drove 190 miles both ways to north jersey as if it were 85 degrees and sunny. On a warm day it seems as if you're driving a bmw 3 series. The levinson radio is real. The current generation navigation system actually works. The 5 speed tranny doesn't miss a shift. And most important to my wife, it's easy to get in and out of the front or back. We rate the gx a 10.
No features stand out. The machine for 2005 is at the pinnacle of success.
