2008 Lexus GX 470 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


I picked up my GX in 3/08. I wanted to wait awhile before posting a review to allow for some perspective. The craftsmanship and build quality is fantastic. Power train the smoothest I've experienced (previous BMW owner). The car has been 100% trouble free so far (14K miles). No squeaks or rattles to speak of. Superb driving position and seats. Having just moved into a new house with a new baby, this car has been very useful for carrying boxes, etc. Rock solid in snow as well. Wish gas mileage was better though; I've been averaging 17.5 mpg on premium. I would recommend this car as long as you don't mind the mileage.

Best Features

V8 engine, seats, cargo space, quiet interior, Bluetooth, overall feeling of quality

Worst Features

Gas mileage, 3rd row seats that don't fold into trunk, cannot use nav while driving, and difficult to scroll on map using the touchscreen. There should be a joystick like on Honda/Acura.
