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


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.
