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


Review

Worried about vibration problem, but
test drive before taking delivery
eliminated as an issue. First time
Lexus buyer; currently own 2 BMWs.
Almost bought X5, but quality issues
steered me away. Glad I chose the
GX470 - head and shoulders better than
X5.


Best Features

Auto-sensing rain wipers; auto-release steering wheel; interior quality and layout; exterior styling; ride quality; navigation system; Mark Levinson stereo


Worst Features

Power rear quarter window open/close, better 3rd row seat design

Review

I love my GX. I reluctantly traded in
my RX (which also was a great car)
because I wanted a little larger
vehicle. I am so glad I did. It drives
like a dream. I highly recomend this
vehicle.


Best Features

I love the navigation system. I love the comfort and feel of this vehicle.


Worst Features

The third row seating is not comfortable. Would be better if they folded down flush in the floor.

Review

Bought the GX after looking at the
Cayenne and the BMW. Better deal for
the money; quality is better. Ride is
stiff over heavy bumps in the rear, but
the ride and cabin quiet is typical
Lexus excellent quality. Engine is
adequate for the vehicle; interior
appointments are high quality. The rear
door looks goofy and is impractical,
particularly when towing our trailer.
Stereo is excellent, and the nav system
is very well-designed and easy to use.
I like the size of the shifter, but
there should be more of a gate between
D and 4. Overall it's a great vehicle;
great size, good power, great quality.


Best Features

Nav system, stereo, interior design.


Worst Features

Rear door; shift gate; allow programmability of entry/lock features, running lights, etc. as in the Jeep Ltd.

Review

I had the RX300 before this, and to
believe that the GX470 is twice the car
is an understatement. It is truely an
amazing car.


Worst Features

Make more room in the back, get rid of the back row seats.

Review

Almost bought a ML500, glad we didn't!
Dealership experience was good -- no
high pressure, only professional
salesmanship. Car is REALLY
comfortable fun to drive! Killer navi
system -- voice input and touch screen
features are awesome compare to
ML500's little joy stick thingy. Not
too cracy about the swing-out back
door at first, but actually like it
now since we only use the 3rd roll
seat for 1 person (my teenage kid) and
he uses the back door for access so
that he doesn't have to mess with the
2nd roll seat.


Best Features

NAVI SYSTEM, creature comfort (luv this term):-)


Worst Features

More hp -- underpowered comparing to it's peers, folded side mirrors, a wet bar (j/k!).
