It's a technological marvel
By DC on


2006 Lexus GX 470 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


The top reason to buy an SUV is for traction control. Well, the technology in this car is phenomenal. Full, split axle 4-wheel drive for mud and snow slopes that some trucks could not even handle. Computer assisted 4-wheel drive for on road use in snow and ice, along with a brilliant ABS system, though unnerving at times, and you can be sure of a safe fast stop in any weather. I also got a special suspension option (one of the few options offered on a Lexus) and I am amazed at how it handles bumps. Riding in this car is an absolute pleasure. Its computer technology is amazing as is its build. Cost is high, but I can say, it's worth every penny.

Best Features

Handling and suspension, DVD w/remote headphones, comfort and quietness of ride.

Worst Features

Implement the 8-6-4 cylinder technology other cars have in order to get a little better gas mileage. I get a stable 15 mpg in congested highway - local road driving. I top 20 mpg on fast open highway.
