2001 Lexus LX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Only the Range Rover comes close. The rest (Escalde, Navigator, Denali, X5, ML 430) pale in comparison in the things that really matter - RELIABILITY, resale and OVERALL statisfaction. A true luxury utility vehicle. Nice try Ford and Chevy, thank you for playing.


Favorite Features

REAL offroad ability, Nav system, Mark Levinson stereo. Fact that it's based on the Landcruiser, the 2nd best SUV out there.


Suggested Improvements

Complaints fixed in the 2003/2004 models

Review

The Lexus LX470 is the finest SUV I've ever driven. I live in the Colorado mountains and "use" this vehicle like a sports utility was meant to be used. This vehicle is a fine example of a high end Lexus... Very quiet and smooth. It feels like you're floating on air!


Favorite Features

Navigation, Multi-Position Heated Leather Seats and Rear folding Seats.

Review

I looked at 2004 Navigators and Escalades. I already own a 2003 Explorer. None of them compare to the refined ride of this vehicle. The off the line torque seems to be every bit as good as the Navigator and not that far from the Escalade. Most of the torque seems to be readily available at the lower end of the tach. The ride is incomparable. The handling is exceptional for a vehicle of this size/weight. The interior is as luxury as it gets with soft leather and burlwood accents. The navigation system is in a class of its own. Extremely intuitive to operate and accurate, with a huge screen. The third row seats are useful for small people only.


Favorite Features

Navigation system, adjustable height, adaptive suspension.


Suggested Improvements

Sterring wheel controls for aduio/climate. More leg room in third row.

Review

How can such an expensive car not have a warning for back up like the cheaper Fords and GM cars?


Favorite Features

7 miles per gallon


Suggested Improvements

When air cond. is on in front and rear temperature is set by children to hot setting-the car will be 100 degrees inside and floors burn. Make sure to have the rear heat set at cold if you want cold air in the front as well.

Review

Great machine but lacks some touches you would expect at this price...info computer, steering wheel controls, eye glass holder, readable clock and outside temp.


Favorite Features

Ride and looks, seats and quiet interior.


Suggested Improvements

Navigation system gives "wierd" directions, use only on routes you know; no interstate exit services info, liimited POI; Garmin would be better.
