Review

This is my 7th Lexus and my second LX (1st was 1998). This vehicle is SO much more than the previous model - and not only in price! I have physical limitations and this vehicle makes entry, exit and driving easy, easy, easy. Yes, the gas mileage is poor, but you just have to know that up front and move on. We also have an '07 GX which I would say is the better vehicle for the price. But I have trouble getting in and out of it. Still a great car. My LX has ALL the options. Some seem absurd (i.e., unnecessary), but we are learning to use them all. I love the no key function (again, an ease of entry issue), AND especially the air cooled seats. Anyone will enjoy this if you can get over price.


Favorite Features

The air cooled seats, keyless start and entry (never have to take key out of pocket), adjustable height control (automatically lowers when shut off), GREAT audio system, AND it lets me download all my CDs so I don't have to carry them around. Oh, and I even have grown accustomed to the cool box!


Suggested Improvements

1. I think the trip/mileage information would be better if on the Nav screen like in the '07 RX. 2. When the sun hits the dash in certain ways and at certain times on the passenger side, it creates an annoying glare for the front passenger (remedied with a towel).

Review

I will never drive another SUV and I have never been more happy with a purchase in my life. Power, comfort, ease of driving. A true machine.


Favorite Features

Parking assist with cameras in large SUV makes it a breeze to park in tight spots. Automatic level control helps my wife load things in back easily. I can put three car seats in the second row and still use the back space with the seats up.


Suggested Improvements

Can always improve on gas mileage but if you are looking at a large SUV this probably isn't a priority as it wasn't mine. Third row leg room. Not made for adults, a good kid row when they are out of car seats. Would also add car seat hooks in the third row so you can put them in the back easier.

Review

Traded in a Mercedes GL450 for this car. While the Mercedes drove more like a car vs. a large SUV the LX570 is much more of a luxurious ride. There is also much more interior space. My three kids noticed it before I did. We have much less issues with "Stop touching me!". We had a road trip in the car and found it to be very comfortable. Very pleasurable to drive. Lots of extras on the car. The Navigation system was outstanding and easy to use. The sound system is great and the kids loved the built in DVD. Overall a very nice car. We liked it better than the Mercedes, and the Range Rover.


Favorite Features

Navigation, Voice Commands, Very comfortable seats, tons of space. Smooth ride.


Suggested Improvements

Rear seats should fold down in to the floor rather than to the sides. Other than that nothing.

Review

This is simply the ultimate, go anywhere do anything with class luxury SUV available on the planet. Our family owned the 2003 LX 470 and that was great, but this is beyond great. We looked at the best from Land Rover, Mercedes and even the Cadillac and there was no comparison. Value for value, reliability for reliability and capability for capability there is no other SUV that compares. Own one and you will understand!


Favorite Features

Amazing suspension system, high quality fit/finish/interior and exterior materials.


Suggested Improvements

The rear end is a bit plain.

Review

This vehicle is the 4th LX we have purchased. Following in the traditions of our LX 450 and two LX 470s, the LX 570 continues Lexus' trend of building quality vehicles that will endure the abuse of winters in Upstate New York, while also continuing to perform at a high level. The ride quality is excellent, with active height control and driver-controlled suspension. The Adaptive Front Lighting System finally makes its appearance on the flagship Lexus SUV, which makes navigating the winding roads of the Adirondacks that much easier in darkness. The styling is reminiscent of the LS 460, carefully lifted and placed upon an LX chassis. You will not be disappointed with this vehicle.


Favorite Features

The front and side view cameras are a great innovation on the new LX. Being able to see right in front of the bumper and along the curb are a great help in parallel parking such a hulk of an SUV.


Suggested Improvements

Sadly, the LX 570 did not have the option of removable third row seats as its predecessors did. However, the addition of power lifting to those seats does make things much easier when trying to find extra room for more passengers.

Review

People who buy Lexus want the reliability and quality of a Toyota but the luxury of a German SUV and the maintenance of a Japanese car. That is what I get in this SUV. Great amount of technology, decent ride. Seats could be better and the ride and handling needs to be improved by a long way when compared to the range rover which feels more sturdy. For someone that has owned range rover, bmw x5, merc ML I have to say this does compete with them but it too has its shortfalls like the other SUVs.


Favorite Features

Reliable, cheap to maintain. Technology. Great engine. Smooth ride.


Suggested Improvements

Truck like handling. Seat comfort. Seats that don't get stained when you wear denim.
