A real surprise. The GX470 is a well built, very comfortable SUV -- I looked at the Range Rover and the BMW X5 and am glad I decided on the Lexus. Everything in the car works -- not a single issue in the first 2000 miles. True, it's not a sport sedan -- and it drives like an SUV, not a car. But it has plenty of power and handles well. I'd recommend the GX 470 to anyone looking to replace their mid size SUV.
Mark Levinson sound system; front seats, build quality, comfort and quiet. Excellent off roader in spite of all the luxury.
Increase the horsepower; make it more nimble. Get rid of the cassette deck! and the rear door which opens sideways.
