Lexus GX470: A Pre-Owned SUV

Lexus has an exceptional reputation for dependable, reliable, luxurious but does that include Utility Vehicles (SUV)? renowned personal-service oriented Departments are also well not only for their high if infrequent, routine maintenance and but for their top notch super-luxurious areas, which include refreshments (coffee, pastries, yogurt, bottled water and pop). You are also offered a loaner car, and your car always be returned freshly after servicing.

J.D. and Associates has named Lexus over a dozen times as reliable brand in the US. and Consumer has repeatedly designated Lexus the top 5 most reliable vehicles. The reputation is unsurpassed!

What their mid-sized SUV, the Is it a pre-owned vehicle you should Debuted in 2002 as a 2003 and based on the Toyota 4Runner, the is a few inches smaller than the Sequoia, and the Lexus modeled the Sequoia, the LX470. A few inches can a huge difference; the difference a full-sized SUV and a mid-sized SUV, in

The early GX470 won various including 4-Wheeler of the Year in and 2004 from 4X4 Magazine, and Sport-Utility All-Star for 2003 Automobile Magazine. J.D. and Associates named the GX470 the premium luxury SUV in initial in 2005, and Kelly Blue gave it its Best Resale Award in 2006.

The GX470, a 4-wheel-drive SUV, is powered by a 4.7 VVT-I, 32-valve, four-cam V8, at 235 HP. For 2005, the HP was increased to 270. EPA ratings of 15 MPG city and 19 MPG highway, we achieved 22 MPG on our first trip to the Coast in our new 2004 GX470. The features an electronically controlled automatic transmission and enhanced four-wheel drive with locking Torsen limited-slip differential, self-leveling rear and Adaptive Variable Suspension which manually adjusts to different settings. It’s not as riding as a sedan, since it is a after all, but it is exceptionally and luxurious. We traded in our 2001 ES300 Coach Edition we had for five years, which is well known for its quiet and the GX470 is actually much than the ES300. We were and impressed!

The GX470 has seating for eight, the optional third-row seat. The row seats can be folded down, or to the or just taken completely The second row reclining seats can be folded forward, out of the way, or out too, giving immense capacity for a mid-sized SUV.

For us, upon driving the 4Runner, and LX470, and then the GX470, it was a clear choice; the GX470, down! We LOVED it from the we first drove it. As SUV-virgins, having owned, or ever any interest in, an SUV of any size or kind (or either, for that matter), it was a brand new adventure in car shopping. The between the full-sized and mid-sized was remarkable. My wife is very and though our first choice was a to 2002 4Runner, because of it just did not fit her right. To get close to the foot pedals, the steering was just too close for comfort, or The larger full-size SUVs just that, larger. Too for us! Like Goldie Locks and the the GX470 was just right for of us!

On our first test-drive of a GX470, we extremely impressed by several of this mid-sized SUV, not the fit; the handling, the power, the all around, the many standard the pure luxuriousness of it! After more research, looking and we bought a used 2004 from our local Lexus and we LOVE it!


There are just a few however. The biggest one: are not a lot of storage compartments, large or anywhere. Also, Consumer Auto Reliability Charts that the Drive System had a few problems than average for the several years, but ours had problem fixed under long before we purchased it.

The few don’t detract from the standard features we enjoy so such as: variable heated seats, dual-zone automatic controls plus rear controls, navigation system voice recognition for many of the plus backup camera, mirrors with tilt-down aid, water repellant and front-side windows, rain-sensing AC power inverter outlet, and all the many normal Lexus we’ve grown so accustomed to the years.

Overall, for us, our 2004 GX470 certainly does the few reservations noted above) the Lexus slogan, The Pursuit of and in a mid-size, 4-wheel-drive, SUV! Who have thunk it? Certainly not writer!
