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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Ride, looks, durability


Suggested Improvements

only complaint I can come up with is that in order to get a 3rd row seat in they pushed the second row up a tad bit making leg room in the back a little tight.

Review

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!


Favorite Features

Night Vision, Navigation, Heated & Ventilated Seats, Backup Camera, and Park Assist.


Suggested Improvements

Better Fold Up seats, needs more power. It is good that the LX is now a 570!

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Everything. Love the Pearl White Paint

Review

I love the feeling when I wrap my hands around that wood trim steering wheel.The softy smooth whisper of the wind I here when I pull out in front of a car the humming of that 4.7V8 engine and the styling of the exterior.the smooth ride and the quick stopping brakes.this truck will blow your mind!!!!!!! this is the best luxury here!!!!!


Favorite Features

The navigation system is great and i love the schedule maintenance system the calender reminder and the auto closing mirrors and auto windshield wipers power adjusting steering wheel and seats and the auto start when you put the key in ignition and turn it once and the blue dots on speed odometers.


Suggested Improvements

to make power lift gate on key wood trim all the way around navigation system
