Test drove just about every large suv's on the market and the Lexus was heads and shoulders above the rest. We were looking for a quality used vehicle that would be reliable. After owning the LX 470 for over a year and a half we are still singing its praises.
Everything, it looks great and have not had any problems what so ever.
All shortcomings have been addressed on newer models.
I bought this LX470 for $30 grand, at
the time the mileage was 77k. i
thought this was kind of high but when
it comes to a Lexus, mileage doesn't
matter cause the car can run forever.
anyways, the LX470 i bought came with
chrome wheels, chrome bumper guard and
the tail lights guard, with a gold
package. It is awesome, the paint is
unbeatable and it is even better than
my 98 ES 300. I used to think of SUVs
are bumpy but when it comes to the
LX470, it is quiet, smooth, it feels
as if you are floating on a boat when
travel at high speed on highways as
well as bumpy roads. i love this suv!
Everything, especially the wood trim,
none other wood trim looks as nice in
Leg room for third row seating. Faster
Bought this vehicle one year ago with
72000 miles on it. Now has 81000
miles. Wonderful trip ride. Great
capacity to carry stuff. All around
great vehicles. Drove through 12
inches of snow with it last winter.
Goes anywhere. Dealers have great
service. Only issue with it is CD
changer died. $600 to replace. Oh
well, even Lexus isn't perfect!
Seats. Room. Carrying capacity.
More power. More gears; not an issue
with newer ones. Tends to freewheel in
overdrive and must use brakes when in
other vehicles could just let off the
gas: "No compression braking". Roll
down rear window glass like in 4Runner
would be nice.
A very comfortable vehicle - I bought
this new for my wife and it has been a
good vehicle for us on trips and daily
driving and I love the off-road
ability. I have been dissapointed
with the reliability of the vehicle
and the dealer experience has been
poor! I doubt we will buy another
one. Originally, I wanted a Mercedes
but they didn't (still don't) have
anyting large enough for our needs.
Overall, Lexus tends to be a little
guady with styling and getting worse.
Height adjustable supsension - great
More power, longer wheelbase/body,
bucket seats for middle row, option
for black interior, and dealers that
know more about fixing cars that I do.
