Comfortable but No Soul
By ponch on


2011 Lexus GX 460 4dr SUV 4WD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


This is a quality vehicle with nice features.
I could not believe how comfortable the driving position was and how smoothly it drove around town.

However, I ended up trading out of it for the following reasons.
1) It LABORS on the highway and is a tiring ride on long trips. 2) It feels unnecessarily big 3) The NAV and iPod systems are annoying 4) It chugs gas making you ask the question, "Do I really need this vehicle?" 5) Overall, this is a very pretty vehicle, but it has no soul.
If you absolutely need a USEFUL 3rd row and you don't care about sending your college savings $$ to the Middle East, then this vehicle might be for you.
Otherwise, I would absolutely recommend a BMW X5.

Best Features

Comfortable Seats, Back-up camera, Overall expensive feeling cockpit.

Worst Features

Needs an friendlier iPod and NAV interaction. Very tedious. Needs better fuel economy. Should feel greater thrust on freeway and should hold lane with tighter steering and confidence and not give you that floaty, trucky feel.
