2004 Lexus GX 470 SUV 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

A quiet, luxurious, and smooth ride overall. Beautiful presence and the perfect size. Quality materials and dependable. Stock stereo (sound) is nothing to brag about (previously had Bose) and I would upgrade if I had it to do again. Lack of dome light button to light entire interior cabin annoying at best. Seats are a little short for someone with long legs, but all SUV's I've been in are the same. Auto tilt mirrors when backing up are great. Hard to manually operate lights/wipers/cruise at night because controls are not lighted and because everything generally runs great on automatic, in an instance you need to operate these manually, you are not familiar enough with.


Best Features

Auto tilt mirrors when backing, LOVE the automatic lights and wipers, 6 disc CD changer in dash, luxurious ride, quality materials, quiet sunroof, handles great in bad weather (snow) and we get lots of it in Upstate NY. Rear wiper cleans full view.


Worst Features

Better stock stereo. Lighted controls and dome light button. Mute button on stereo for toll booths, telephone calls, etc.

Review

This GX is my second and last Lexus. Shakes like a Model T at 60 mph. Brakes stop the car with a loud and shaking "KLUNK" at the end of the stop. Nav system is woefully out of date. All the dealer can tell me is "Lexus is aware of your problems but doesn't have a fix at this time." Bad answer. . .


Best Features

Nice interior appointments. Overall concept is good on paper, but Lexus did a poor job of execution.


Worst Features

Just dump this one and start over.

Review

my husband just bought me this 3 days after christmas. we traded in a lx 470. this suv is out standing. it has a dvd player for the kids and a navigation system. even though it is a few inches smaller than the lx 470, you would never know it. i also love the way the back door opens. it is much easier to load groceries and packages.


Best Features

navigation system and dvd player


Worst Features

not that i can think of!

SUV is great for taking snowboarding or any other outdoor activity. We have 15 month old, and this SUV fits his car seat and all of his paraphinalia easily.


Best Features

Interior is very nice. Seating is very comfortable on long rides.


Worst Features

Could use a more powerful engine

Review

I love this unit. I had a RX300 for 2
years and wanted a bigger car. THIS is
it! It has the room inside. The outside
is gorgeous! It has room for my growing
son. And room for hauling.


Best Features

I love the size. It is not too big and not too small. Enough storage/hauling room. and enough for my 6'4" husband!


Worst Features

There could be more sotrage places in the front compartment.
