2006 Lexus GX 470 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I moved from GM to Lexus for reliability reasons and have no regrets. I will probably never buy an American made vehicle again. I did have an issue with the driveshaft but the dealer installed a new one for free since the vehicle was still under warranty. This vehicle would be perfect if it had about another 2 feet added to the rear cargo area (similar to the Suburban or Yukon XL). The power delivered from the 4.7 is superb. Interior styling and finish is nothing less than what you would expect from Lexus. For the price, look real hard at this vehicle if you're in the market for this size of vehicle. I'm not sure if any other automaker can top this one! Looking forward to moving up to a LX.
Engine/drivetrain, Styling, Luxurious Interior, wood trimmed steering wheel, off road ability, reliability, soft leather and secret features (other owners know what I mean).
2 additional feet to cargo area as option - call it GX470L. Gas mileage (16mpg) city is tough on wallet but worth it.
