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


Got this GX-470 2003 back on 04/2003, fully loaded. Since then visited dealer once for turning signal light bulb (got replaced for free even after warranty expiration). Other than that - only scheduled maintenance. Never drove anything better than this (including x5/3.0-2007) before or after. Few days ago my daughter got hit by Civic into passenger side on a street (35 mph, at the time of impact even slower for both cars). My GX fell on driver's side, total loss. My girl landed on asphalt through drivers window under my GX, covered by broken glass, cut her left arm and elbow. Her passenger bumped her head. All bags in my GX are intact. WHAT IS SAFETY?

Best Features

Everything, except protection at time of accident.

Worst Features

Air bags SHOULD DEPLOY at time of accident. (Falling on a side should be sensitive for air bags).
