2007 Lexus GX 470 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I have always purchased BMWs, but decided to get a Lexus for a change. I just traded it in and went back to BMWs. The SUV is very well made, but is awful to drive. We actually felt unsafe in ours.


Favorite Features

Trim package is beautiful.


Suggested Improvements

Stopping distance and horrible brakes.

2007 Lexus GX 470 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

After 4 RXs, I needed a change. Voila the GX. It is roomy, comfortable, sufficiently powerful, and beautifully finished. Only cars with the 3rd row seat were available, but I would rather skip that expense and get a cargo cover instead. The seats are stored, taking up room in my garage. After owning 10 Lexuses, I am surprised at some of the features missing from this car, e.g. HID swiveling headlamps and in-dash CD player. The RX is a much better equipped model for much less money.


Favorite Features

Ride height, navigation, Mark Levinson stereo, side-opening rear door, and the exterior design.


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage, HID headlights that swivel, coin holder in the console, more comfortable center armrests, 2nd row seats that fold flat rather than stack against the 1st row, in-dash CD player instead of in the glovebox, and cooled front seats.

2007 Lexus GX 470 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This handles and drives so much nicer than my Toyota Sequoia. The gas mileage averages about 18 combined city/hwy. This is a great luxury SUV that drives very smoothly down the road. It also performs very well in the snow and mud offroad.


Favorite Features

Interior layout and quality is superb. The standard sound system is great and includes an input for iPod.


Suggested Improvements

It would be great if the rear swing tailgate were converted to a conventional pop up door like other SUVs. Being able to opt out of 3rd row seating and gaining a cargo cover option would be nice.

Review

Just drove my new GX 470 off the lot yesterday. So far, I am loving it! It has plenty of room. Very commanding on the road with the height of the vehicle. Quality fittings. Buy the ones with Nav. Very high quality. This is something I am going to keep for a while, a new one is worth the money.


Favorite Features

The iPod jack. Smooth ride. Adjustable suspension system.


Suggested Improvements

I also have an Acura RL, the navigation system is much easier.

Review

This is my first Lexus and I love it, superb driving and luxurious.


Favorite Features

Rear view camera and Mark Levinson sound system plus navigation.


Suggested Improvements

Third row seats need to fold into floor, memory seat system should include rearview mirror, need to offer 20 to 22 inch tires with 18 inch standard.
