2004 Lexus LX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

nice vehicle over all. For the consumer that requires "high end" luxury i.e Real Estate Brokers like my self, I find that my clientele gives exceptional feedback to the vehicle. Amenities are prevalent throughout. Regarding dependability I personally have had zero issues. Service the vehicle regularly and it should give 300k in mileage in the end. As a fast paced Realtor, dependability is key to my success. I'd highy recoment the LX 470 for those are accustomed to higher level of excellence.


Favorite Features

The heads up display, DVD and most imortantly the upgrade Mark Levinson stereo are a must.


Suggested Improvements

Better mileage without a weaker engine

Review

It's slow--only 235HP--and prone to crosswinds on the highway. Plus the third seat is difficult to use and takes up lots of space, and my dealer in Boise is unimpressive. But the LX is very well built and has a comfortable interior...


Favorite Features

Interior, Levinson audio, quality


Suggested Improvements

More power, more space, fold flat third seat

Review

Wonderful build quality, excellent interior, and pillow-like ride. Could use more power, though. And it wanders more than it should on the highway.


Favorite Features

Suggested Improvements

more power and less wandering on the highway

Review

Bought 470 May '04.By end of May went on first road trip and discovered door leaked and created an obnoxious squealing sound while traveling at high speed.Lexus dealership tried to fix twice then gave up and sent us to LEXUS USA.We have not gotten any support from them at all.They haven't addressed the problem. It's unbelievable how badly they have treated us. Our door still screams when we travel which is every other week. They have our 70K they win.Please don't buy Lexus.


Favorite Features

Ride is nice but top heavy in curves. Easy Nav system but noticed the lighting system has been blinking on and off as if it has a short, Not looking forward to dealing with LEXUS in any capacity. Not enough favorite features to compensate for poor customer service.Could never recommend a Lexus.


Suggested Improvements

Service!I will never buy another Lexus due to the poor service from the dealership and Lexus USA. This 470 has less power than my ML 430. It is a gas hog and a dog when it comes to climbing elevations. The leather seats do not compare to other luxury vehicles.Lexus USA does not care after the sale

Review

By far the best SUV ever made, especially if you care about luxury. Compared to my previous Range Rover (and even Landcruiser), the LX470 is simply amazing in its ability to deliver quiet, luxurious, reliable performance. It is also beautiful and stylish, despite being around since 1998. Off-road capability (if you dare) is astounding and as good as any stock 4x4 out there. On-road performance is sumptuous, smooth, quiet, relaxed. Driving the LX470 just makes you feel like the world is a more peaceful place. Security in snow and off-road is first-rate.


Favorite Features

Gorgeous interior, tasteful wood trim. Variable ride height is nice for off- roading. Split tailgate is great -- gives a nice clean place to sit and put on ski boots after driving through mud/snow (much better than lift-up tailgate). HID headlights add distinctive look. Very quiet!


Suggested Improvements

Rain-sensing wiper would be nice. Steering-wheel mounted radio controls would also be nice, as would a heated steering wheel. Another 100 horsepower would be great. Gas mileage could be better, but in this league, they are all gas-guzzlers.

Review

I have only one negative comment - and that is the way the rear gate opens. It opens like a door instad of like a gate. When putting groceries in the back, I like to have the gate serve as a cover for me in the rain while I load groceries. I'm not a fan of the way this back gate is designed.


Favorite Features

Navigation system - most definitely! I'll never want another car without it.


Suggested Improvements

Open the gate UP instead of out. I'd also like to see a bench seat feature (or two separate seats without the console in the middle) for us ladies. There's nowhere to put our purses when someone's in the passenger seat.
