Dependability & Reliability
By woodpecker on
2005 Lexus GX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I have only had this vehicle for a short time however it is typical Lexus quality-build. Gas mileage is not the best but better for an engine of this size and class of SUV, something I realized when buying. The sound system is excellent and optional sport edition adds an extra flare each time I get inside. Lexus dependability/safety/durability/peace of mind is something that comes standard with the MSRP...
Mark Levinson is a concert hall on wheels, typical Lexus quiet ride and smoothness. Soft leather appointments and powerful yet efficient(?) engine wins me over each time I drive it.
3rd row is good for a dog or child only (sorry adults) plus it doesn't flow flat into the floor. To maximize cargo room, seats must be removed which I consider primitive by today's engineering standards. Would like to see power fold mirrors, also lose the tape player in favor of 6-disk single feed.
