Built like a tank, but very comfortable
By cfishlaw on


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


This SUV is built like a tank.
Although the ride is not quite as
smooth on rough pavement or
cobblestones as my old RX300, it
handles very well, and is very
comfortable, even on long trips. The
quality is perfect - no rattles,
squeaks, etc. I was surprised by the
lack of a change cup and center
console storage (which are present in
the RX300). Gas mileage is 13-14 mpg,
but what do you expect for a 6150 lb.
SUV? The rear "barn door" is unusual,
but does not bother me.

Best Features

The back-up camera and tilting side mirrors in reverse are invaluable.

Worst Features

Center console should have more storage space, like RX300. Should have a change cup. 3rd row seats should store into floor. Should be storage space under floor in rear. The nav system menu in my old RX300 was easier to operate. There are no coat hooks with rear a/c option.
