2002 Lexus LX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I had a 1998 LX470 with several problems. It always pulled to one side or the other (steering wheel never centered correctly) on highway; emergency brake cable rattled near/at right rear wheel; tilt/telescope motors went out several times. Lexus never could fix either problem; took back under lemon law. I bought a 2001 just like it hoping they would have fixed problems. New 2001 pulls to left at highway speeds; same emergency brake cable rattle at right rear wheel; tilt/telescope motors already replaced once; transfer case replaced (vibration); Several rattles interior. Very disappointing to have basically same problems on same vehicle 3 model years later.


Suggested Improvements

Trip computer (2003 has), bigger wheels (2003 has 17 inch), 6-speed transmission (2003 up to 5 speed), more powerful engine (great engine, just needs more power).

Review

This vehicle is the ultimate SUV on the planet. It has all the bells and whistles, has Lexus reliability and build quality, and styling that is unmatched by any of its competitors. It's one of those few vehicles on the road that tells the world, "you've arrived."


Favorite Features

Too many to name


Suggested Improvements

Improved mileage would be nice and available DVD player for the center and rear rows.
