2005 Lexus GX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
This is our 3rd Lexus trading up from the RX model. The main reason we bought the GX is its size while driving around Florida. We are totally thrilled with the performance of this vehicle. The interior is well appointed and is the best ride we have had in years owning a vehicle. Driving is a joy on a calm day. If it is windy you are going to struggle with the wheel when sudden gust prevail. Passenger seating is very good in the back except for the cargo area fold down seating. Just try to get back there. Leg room zero and tolerable for young kids. Cargo area and rear door needs work. With cargo seats stored you are limited with space for any large items unless you remove the seats.
Lexus has made a great effort within interior appointments and it is appreciated. If I had one thing to say it is the seats... they are just comfortable with the added feature to adjust the actual suspension. I appreciate the ease of folding down the rear passenger seats
Rear door is way too big, rear cargo seats need a place to put your legs and hide when you don't use them. Passenger seating should be 6-way, outside mirrors: auto fold-in,turn- signal view. Storage capability in rear for guy stuff like bungy cords, jumper cables, tools etc.
