2003 Lexus GX 470 SUV 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I am quite pleased with GX 470 I
purchased in late July. My Blizzard
Pearl GX has turned several heads. I
haven't seen this clor as of yet on the
road or at any other local dealerships
as of yet. However, I plan to trade in
my 2003 for a 2004 because I just can't
live with the after market installed
DVD system. I will definately get the
factory DVD this time. The current
system doesn't take full advantage of
the factory installed features like the
Mark Levenson system or the factory
installed system integration. The
backup camera in the 2004 will be a
blessing.


Best Features

Mark Levison, Rear AC


Worst Features

Power rear door that lifts up like RX330, Power rear quarter window open/close, better 3rd row seat design

Review

This is the best SUV I had drive, I've
test drive the MDX, ML320, FX45, before
buying the GX470. This SUV is very
smooth, quiet, and powerful, and the
quality is the best compare to other
SUV's company. Recently, I have
checked the J.D. Power wed site about
the GX470 rating, and I believe they
have made a big mistake in rating this
automobile or the people that do the
evaulation did do it right! So, don't
believe every thing you read or see.


Best Features

GPS, MARK STEREO, REAR ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM, VERY COMFORTABLE RIDE.


Worst Features

REAR SEATS SHOULD FOLD DOWN LIKE THE ODYSSEY VAN, AND REAR DOOR SHOULD OPEN UPWARD LIKE THE RX330 WITH POWER.

Review

My wife loves the barn door, its her
car, but come on Japan, you didn't
research the barn door enough. It is
completly unpractical for
America/Americans - you should only
offer it in other countries. I can give
you 20 plus examples why it is a poor
design. The salesman said it was for
saftey, I just laughed and said it was
the biggest line of BS a guy has ever
said to my face. If you can get over
the BARNDOOR, this car offer sooo much
more than all the competitors, the MB
looks like a minivan/mailvan, the BMW
doesn't even compare (it does in my
opinion have the best rear door, Bring
back the tailgate!!!!!!!) and the Volvo
is an underpowered joke.


Best Features

Altimeter - cool touch guys, barimoter - cool too - Love the big sunroof, great ride, love the huge windows!!! The fact that you can change the Suspension is awesome and comes in handy.


Worst Features

GET RID OF THE BARN DOOR!! Offer it as an option, THE IDEAL TAILGATE IS LIKE THE OLD BRONCOS. GLASS RETREATS INTO THE GATE AND THE GATE FOLDS DOWN. THUS YOU CAN HAUL LARGE OBJECTS AND THEN HAVE A TAILGATE PINCNIC IN THE REAR OF THE CAR. Come on, I didn't buy a TAXI.
