2003 Lexus LX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

25K trouble free miles. 12-14 mpg
expected when one notes the 5500+ lbs.
of weight. Nothing on the market to
compare with it unless the NEW Range
Rover, now under German mgmt, might be
a contender, but I would have to be
shown.


Best Features

Reliability, reliability, reliability plus superb fit and finish.


Worst Features

Add another 50 HP (at least). Could care less about the fuel mileage.

Review

Overall, the LX 470 is good,
but falls short of what it could
be. As has been noted, even
w/ the 5hp increase and new tranny
for '03, the LX is 35-50hp short
of where it ought to be. In addition,
the general age of the platform has
began to show. It is not as space
efficient as newer alternatives, and
for a $70k vehicle, there are things
that should be standard that aren't
avail (no park distance control, no
window sun shades, etc). Sadly, when
this vehicle is replaced w/ a Sequoia-
based product, there will be a void in
this size range (it's a big jump from a
GX to a Sequoia!). In all, can't say
I'm disappointed, but I'm not gushing.


Best Features

Fit and finish, quality of materials, sense of safety.


Worst Features

Too late for this iteration, but hopefully the next big Lexus SUV will have more power, and incorporate features common to top-end luxury sedans such as park distance control and window sunshades. Also, removable seats are heavy / unwieldy.

Review

Of course the Lux stuff --
clients/investors ride in style in LA
and DC. Always smooth and cool.

Best part tho is the utility. Does
everything in style. Camped in it for
a month in the Sierra (slept in the
back). Serious off-road in
summer/winter in desert/mountain.
Water crossings to 20". Climbs and
scambles like a Wrangler but with a
Lex ride. Amazing in snow with the
adjustable suspension and stock tires.

Delivers Docs and nurses in snow
emergencies.

Handles triple digit speeds in
emergencies.

Tows fine, not fast, but secure.
7,000K trailer with brakes no prob.


Best Features

Does what you want to do when you want to do it. Carries, hauls, tows, goes. Like a truck. People handling skills of a Ritz Carlton concierge.


Worst Features

Lots more horsepower, some more torque.
