Review

Purchased my GX470 new in 2007. Very comfortable rise and fun to drive. Outstanding DVD and sound system. Multi-CD/DVD exchanger hard to reach. Arm rest on front seats are annoying as they keep locking in up positions. Poor gas MPG (18). Third row seating cramped. Worst complaint is depreciation value. Pd. $58,000+ new, 1 1/2 yrs later, trade in value is $27K - $31K. (27K - 31K lost in 1 1/2 yrs. Unbelievable!!)


Best Features

Fun to drive and comfort of drive.


Worst Features

Third row seating. Heat controls for back seating.

Review

Purchased it new in May 2007 with 4 miles on it (now has 4300+ miles). Traded in our Mercedes ML430 which was purchased new in June 1999. I drive my daughter everywhere in the Lexus & as a mom here are my 'annoyances': uncomfortable arm rest, not enough/poor center compartment design, unreachable CD-changer in glove compartment, shallow/poor location of front cup holder, inaccessible cup holders for rear seats when baby car seat is used in the center, rear seat A/C but not heat, swing open tailgate vs. lift-up, can only power on sound (not video) from front console for entertainment system - must use remote control to power on. No issues with technical & mechanical aspects whatsoever!


Best Features

Comfortable ride, great handling, exterior appearance (wish it came std. with xenon headlights), fantastic sound system (except when I forget to turn down the volume when my 4-year old powers off the rear ent. system), plenty of head room (not that I needed - I'm only 5'), controls on steer. wheel.


Worst Features

More attention to interior cabin design re: luxury conveniences for practicality purposes. Change lift-up tailgate to at least stay dry while loading groceries on rainy days. Intuitive single button pull-down, push-up, slide-back/forth moonroof control. Hideaway push button key like the Benz.

Review

Just bought my GX470. Its much roomier than my RX. Loving the car. The SUV hugs the road, drives great and Lexus's comfort is unmatchable to any other car.


Best Features

navigation, Mark Levinson stereo, camera view while reverse, overall build and feel


Worst Features

better gas milage - 17mpg is too low

Review

I have always purchased BMWs, but decided to get a Lexus for a change. I just traded it in and went back to BMWs. The SUV is very well made, but is awful to drive. We actually felt unsafe in ours.


Best Features

Trim package is beautiful.


Worst Features

Stopping distance and horrible brakes.

Review

After 4 RXs, I needed a change. Voila the GX. It is roomy, comfortable, sufficiently powerful, and beautifully finished. Only cars with the 3rd row seat were available, but I would rather skip that expense and get a cargo cover instead. The seats are stored, taking up room in my garage. After owning 10 Lexuses, I am surprised at some of the features missing from this car, e.g. HID swiveling headlamps and in-dash CD player. The RX is a much better equipped model for much less money.


Best Features

Ride height, navigation, Mark Levinson stereo, side-opening rear door, and the exterior design.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage, HID headlights that swivel, coin holder in the console, more comfortable center armrests, 2nd row seats that fold flat rather than stack against the 1st row, in-dash CD player instead of in the glovebox, and cooled front seats.
