Front end shimmy
By Bill Mclaughlin on


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


I bought this car for the safety &
reliability for my pregnant wife.
Immediately after picking it up I
noticed a significant shimmy at 60-65
mph. I have had it back twice to the
dealer and it has not been corrected.
Watertown Lexus has told me it been
occuring to some of the GX470's. Lexus
Customer Satisfaction has been no help
solving this issue. I am pursuing this
& if they fail to fix it this 3rd time
I will pursue the lemon law. At this
point I am very dissapointed with
Lexus,the dealer and the vehicle, and
would not recommend the GX470 as I feel
the shimmy is significant enough where
it could render the vehicle unsafe in
certain conditions.
