Great Car, awful radio
By Mike925 on


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


This is my first Lexus and I was not
let down from what I expected. I have
taken it off road several times it has
handled beautifully. I am averaging
19.3 mpg over the life of the car (most
of my driving is highway). My biggest
complaint is about something pretty
trivial - radio controls. I could buy
a radio at Circuit City that would be
more user friendly. Lexus's top
designers must have had the day off
when the radio was being created. The
controls are spread out among the
steering wheel, the touch screen and
the cassette deck below.

Best Features

Heated seats and mirrors - a must in wintertime. The intermittant wipers work extremely well. The navigation system is easy to use and works very well. I just wish you could enter destinations while in motion (the passenger would do all of the entering, of course).

Worst Features

Replace the radio with a more user friendly design. An in dash changer would be much better than the 6 disc cartridge in the glove box. More horespower would be nice.
