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

Review

This is my second Lexus, previously owned GS 430, but my 4th SUV. Overall a nice vehice but I do have some gripes. The driving position is not to my liking. It seems like Lexus took the undersized arm rests from the Sequoia and put them in the GX. There is literally no position I can put the armrest in and be comfortable. The ride is just OK, even with the suspension set to the softest setting it's jarring around town. Constantly being in 4wd leads to some interesting noises at highway speeds over 65mph and when parking in a tight spot. Fuel economy... never seen 17mph. The barn door is a major pain when the wind blows. I'd like to see a traditional "liftgate" type of door.

Favorite Features

Rock Solid Reliabilty

Suggested Improvements

Liftgate type of door, better driving position/arm rests. Bigger gas tank and better fuel economy. Number One Suggestion, 4wd on demand.
