Best suv period

Vehicle: 2005 Lexus LX 470 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)

I first purchased an LX in 2000. I'm on my 3rd and 4th ones now. These don't ever break..ever. I have gray 2005 and my wife has a black 2007. Comfortable, reliable. They are fairly expensive new, but if you can find one(and it's difficult) a year old or so you will not be sorry. I live on an island in Florida and it floods often after heavy summer rains. no problem, Push the button to raise the car six inches and plow on through when you get to 20mph it lowers itself back down. In my opinion, this car looks like a perfect combination of tough and refined making it a true classic.




What an suv!

This is an astonishing vehicle. It provides 8 person seating, Leather, Fold up seats, and all. It has features to the max! We had the LX fully loaded to a SUV of $80,000. It had Navigation, DVD, Night Vision, Heated Seats (Front and Back) and just much, much More!




Lx is awesome

After Buying a GX a few months earlier, I traded in the piece of junk LR3 (which was 2 yrs newer). Simply put a 5 yr old Lexus with 50k is better than any other brand new car.

Highway driving is not fun, all this truck needs is gasoline and you forget about rain or snow. It drives like a train on tracks. If getting there is your main concern, this will get you there. For city drivers, well this is not the easiest to park and not the cheapest to feed. In off road, well who the hell will drive a vehicle with this price tag off-road. It will amaze you to find that this is much more than you ever believed your vehicle could do.
