BMW/Mercedes Killer
By Bruce Pietsch on


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


I have owned a BMW325ic and a Mercedes
ML320 and this car is so far superior to
both that it is astounding. I lost a
head gasket on the BMW from chronic
overheating and the ML320 electrical
system failed 5 times and was almost a
grand for brakes. The Lexus does not
have the road feel of BMW but it is
meant to have a luxury feel and is
silent. You cannot tell if you are going
50 or 100 which tends to cause speeding
tickets. No more repairs for me, Lexus
is the best. Do not buy DVD aftermarket
and IRA Lexus is a shoddy dealer,sold me
after market DVD for 2 grand when
factory one cost 1500! Did not do my
homework on accessories.

Best Features

Looks style handling, motor is smooth, transmission outstanding, high speed handling is very safe for big SUV.

Worst Features

Get the factory DVD not aftermarket. Sell your car on your own, as tradein killed me due to some minor dings. Do not get navigation, it is a waste in my view, I do not have nor is it safe to be looking at while driving. 3rd row seats only for small kids/leg room poor-do not fold in.
