Unhappy with first Lexus

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


Our first Lexus and I'll have to say,
I've never been so dissappointed with
an automobile. Transmission seems to
slip on occassion and it takes bumps a
lot harder than I assumed it would.
When driving at low speeds up to about
50, it seems to be a little "jerky",
for lack of a better term; almost as
though it was shifting back and forth
between gears. I would difinately test
drive one and concentrate on the ride
and not get so caught up in the
luxurious interior and all of the
whistles and bells. The automobile is
beautiful inside and out. I just wish
the performance matched the beauty. If
I were to base Lexus on this GX470; I
would never buy another one.

Best Features

Looks, sound system, navigation system (my wife is directionally challenged).

Worst Features

Please fix the transmission slippage and smooth out the ride! That's very dissappointing.
