Bought 470 May '04.By end of May went
on first road trip and discovered door
leaked and created an obnoxious
squealing sound while traveling at
high speed.Lexus dealership tried to
fix twice then gave up and sent us to
LEXUS USA.We have not gotten any
support from them at all.They haven't
addressed the problem. It's
unbelievable how badly they have
treated us. Our door still screams when
we travel which is every other
week. They have our 70K they win.Please
don't buy Lexus.
By far the best SUV ever made,
especially if you care about luxury.
Compared to my previous Range Rover
(and even Landcruiser), the LX470 is
simply amazing in its ability to
deliver quiet, luxurious, reliable
performance. It is also beautiful and
stylish, despite being around since
1998. Off-road capability (if you
dare) is astounding and as good as any
stock 4x4 out there. On-road
performance is sumptuous, smooth,
quiet, relaxed. Driving the LX470
just makes you feel like the world is
a more peaceful place. Security in
snow and off-road is first-rate.
My LX470 is a pleasure to drive. It
very much feels as if I am gliding over
the road as opposed to riding on it.
The controls are thoughtfully
positioned, the navigation system is
efficient and the interior; luxurious.
One shortfall, which is akin to my
previous Landcruiser, is the lack of
leg space provided by the third row
seating. However, this is not enough
of a problem for me ot to purchase
another 470 in a few years.
Very satisfying vehicle. Would
recomment over Range Rover or G-class
Benz. You don't get the quality, total
elegance and quiet competence in all
weather and terrain of the LX 470 in
those vehicles. See for yourself.
