Very satisfying vehicle. Would
recomment over Range Rover or G-class
Benz. You don't get the quality, total
elegance and quiet competence in all
weather and terrain of the LX 470 in
those vehicles. See for yourself.
Luxurious and elegant ambience.
Attention to detail. Faultless quality,
reliability, and longevity.
Larger engine, without sacrificing
decent (for large SUV) fuel mileage.
Available adaptive cruise control. Rear
seat DVD entertainment should be
My LX470 is a pleasure to drive. It
very much feels as if I am gliding over
the road as opposed to riding on it.
The controls are thoughtfully
positioned, the navigation system is
efficient and the interior; luxurious.
One shortfall, which is akin to my
previous Landcruiser, is the lack of
leg space provided by the third row
seating. However, this is not enough
of a problem for me ot to purchase
another 470 in a few years.
A favorite feature is the handy
controls on the steering wheel. I
consider this a safety feature.
My wish is for Lexus to offer optional
bucket seats in the second row and a
deeper well for passenger,s feet in the
third row sesating area.
Can't tell you how happy I have been
with my LX. The dealer makes sure your
car buying experience and service is a
pleasure. On the few occasions I have
had to have something repaired they
have always been fast and eager to
please. Driving the LX is also a
pleasure. The quiet and smooth ride in
amazing for a SUV of this size.
Interior is awesome and unparalleled,
comparing to those German $100K
whatever. Exterior is grandiose. It
kept 5 people comfortable in a 3000+
mile trip, mostly highway at 85mph and
14mpg. No electrical problem, no
degrading in the ride quality so far.
Bluetooth is convenient. DVD nav is
handy, also the backup camera. Mark
Levinson is better than some home
audio. Ownership is superb. Overall,
it does more than I can dream out of a
$70K SUV. It gives me all the
confidence I need for driving. For my
family, it's an ultimate friend, way
beyond a machine. I love her.
AVS makes cornering more fun. Mark
Levinson. Backup camera.
