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