"I have had my GX for a year and a half. I love it! Its very comfortable on trips and around town. Handles well. Ive had no mechanical issues whatsoever. Its powerful, stylish, and plenty of space. It sits high off the ground which makes me feel safer. Im not sure Id own anything other than a Lexus. They spare nothing."
"I use to always get german cars but i thought I would give Lexus a try. I have had this car for almost 3 years now. We have only put 22,000 miles on it. I would not lease another Lexus. The 3rd row is totally useless unless your 1 1/12 ft tall. The tires that came with the car were terrinble. i used them for about 2000 miles and had to change them to a decent tire. The ABS system is too sensitive and the during hard braking if you hit a bump or pot hall the car skips across the road. All I can say is thank goodness it is a lease and goes back in 4 months."
"This SUV has been perfect for 65000 miles! Really -- no problems at all. It still looks and drives like it is brand new (although it is 3 years old) People who drive in it with me invariably comment on how comfortable it is. Bought this after a horrible experience with a BMW X5 (110 days in the shop over its 3 year lease)... No such problems with the Lexus -- all comfort, reliability, performance, and over 20 mpg on the highway to boot!"
"This car seems a bit expensive but worth every cent you spend on it. Leg space in the third row seat is pretty bad except for kids. Least expensive in terms of maintenance. Excellent off-road handling."
"I leased a 2005 GX. It has been a great SUV. Very comfortable and smooth ride. Not a single problem and no complaints! I am considering buying at the end of the lease becuase it is such a great vehicle. Waiting to see if there is a hybrid available first. My last SUV was a Mercedes. I am a Lexus buyer from here on out! Great job Lexus!"
"This is a great SUV. The performance is more then expected. It's powerful V8 with it's smoothness take off gives you the confident to step on that gas pandel. It handle the road like a champ! The Styling is definitly an SUV look...tough. And the Comfort is truely Lexus.
I have my GX470 2006 for almost 2 years now and I love it. I also own an MDX, and I have to say, it makes my MDX a bored to drive. I brought my GX470 late in 2005 (November). It's such a nice ride. It has not given me any problems yet...knock on wood! This SUV overall is the best value for it's kind."
"I have a 2006 GX 470. This is my second one. The first one (2005 model) was totaled in a head on collision on the Interstate doing 60 mph, and I am happy to be here to write this review. I have tested first-hand the critical safety features that most of us barely glance at when we purchase a car. Height & size of vehicle, crumple zones, air-bags...worth every penny. The driver of the other vehicle (Ford Taurus) spent 6 weeks in the hospital with significant injuries (for the record, she was cited for the accident). I walked away with a minor injury caused by the airbag going off (but it saved my life). In addition to this, Lexus makes the most dependable and comfortable vehicles you can buy, at any price. Lexus service is second to none. For those considering BMW or Mercedes who want a first class navigation system...compare them head to head with Lexus. There is simply no comparison. Although they are more expensive vehicles, these other manufacturer's nav systems are difficult to use, and hardly intuitive (The BMW "I-drive"...is a real misnomer). I wouldn't consider buying anything else."
"I take my GX470 offroad all the time at my ranch, and by offroad, I mean serious offroad. The suspension on this car is excellent and it does better going up and down the steep rocky slopes than vehicles that seem better equipped. The highway ride is very smooth and quiet, and there is lots of power and acceleration. My only beef is that this is not a car for tall people. With the back seats down, the front seats have to be far forward, and anyone over 5'10" tall will not be able to drive with the back seats down. Luckily, I'm 5'7" so it's fine for me. Also, the seats are not anywhere near as comfortable as those in my old Jeep Cherokee."
"I have 2004, I love it. It is great in the snow, we have a long drive and last winter we had an unexpected storm. My husband couldn't get out of the drive with his Acura TL, so he had to drive my GX. The snow was up to the bottom and it just cut right through. I love Lexus Service, they treat me great. The next vehicle I buy will absolutely me another Lexus!"
"Purchased GX 470 first of 2007. Sold my 2004 Lincoln Navigator. The dealer did not want the Navigator because of resale value. Sold for a BIG loss. The GX is smaller than the Navigator, but "oh" what a ride!! The GX is the finest automobile I have owned. The Lexus is made so well. I am looking at the new LX 570, but they want even be available until January 2008. May even keep GX I like it so well. FKW"
