2005 Lexus GX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Over the last 8 years I have owned the following SUVs ... Mitsubishi Montero, Mercedes ML 430, BMW X-5 4.4i, Infiniti FX. All of these have been top of the line and fully loaded with every option in the book. This time, I shortlisted and test drove the Range Rover, The LX470, the Cayenne, the Touareg the MDX, and finally the GX 470. Other then the 3rd seat (which despite the bulk, is still very convenient for my 6 and 10 yr old), there is simply no down side to this SUV. Even the gas mileage is good (18 mpg) considering it weighs in at 6800 pounds. It beats its own older brother (the LX 470) at its game for $15000 less. If you need a large SUV with superb comfort, you need not look any further.

Favorite Features

Gadgets, smooth silent silken .... spacious. Bluetooth interface, DVD Player, Mark Levinson audio.

Suggested Improvements

Rear seats need to fold flat. Improved navigation software ... take a lesson from Infiniti.
