A true luxury SUV!

Having owned multiple Mercedes-Benz ML models, I can't believe the difference in build quality and smoothness of this vehicle. Far surpasses the spotty quality of the European brands I have driven. I particularly appreciate the smooth accelaration and feeling of stability. The adjustable suspension allows me to enjoy my driving style while my wife can change it at the turn of a button. First class service to boot!

So far, so good

I purchased an '06 Lexus GX 470 about a month ago & so far so good. It is very smooth & comfortable, the interior has the touch of luxury I was looking for (had an Acura RDX & I may as well have been driving a Honda CRV). The room in the very back is great, too. Again, the RDX was so cramped I couldn't even fit a jogger stroller in it so this is a welcome change. Only negative I'll say about the GX 470 is that it does not have an iPod hook up (so I'm doing the poor-quality tape/iPod solution & does not have XM capability. Both things, I believe, should've been in an 06 GX. Otherwise, great car!

What more could you ask for?

by from Des Moines, IA on October 31, 2011

I bought my 05 GX with approx 67K miles and it drives like a new car (even now with 81K miles). I've had it for a little over a year and have never had even the most minor hiccup. The ride is smoother...
I bought my 05 GX with approx 67K miles and it drives like a new car (even now with 81K miles). I've had it for a little over a year and have never had even the most minor hiccup. The ride is smoother and quieter than almost any other vehicle in it's class, and higher. The drivetrain is very sturdy and reliable, and if you're so inclined very easy to service as well.

This vehicle is a plesure to drive. accelerates with lots of power and authority. Inside is real luxury. If you are on the market for a luxury vehicle and would like to SPEND IN THAT RANGE , consider this vehicle. Poor gas mileage is the only thing you need to worry about.

Just test drove it and put money down on it right away. Sweet. It is a smooth ride. Quiet inside. Handles well. So many buttons, I made sure the manual was in the car. Love the real wood, GPS, Blue Tooth, leather seats and seat warmers. Plenty of room for snowboarding equiptment. And my 75 year old mom can't wait for me to take her out to eat in it. The breaks are quick to react. Gotta get used to that. And I love the way the steering wheel retracts automatically to make it easy to exit the car. I hope I can pick it up on Monday.

A lot like the Toyota Land Cruiser

I had a Toyota Land Cruiser prior to the GX-470. Though it has slightly less space behind the third row of seats, it gets better gas mileage and has much better acceleration (likely due to lower curb weight). I think it is a lot of car for the money. Highly reccomend spending extra to get the navigation system as all of the controls can be run through the Nav screen. Best thing is that it hauls the kids and all the stuff you pick up shopping on the weekends, but IS NOT A MINIVAN. During the week, you can take the kids seats out and drive your buiness clients around in style. Only dislike is the lack of storage space between the front seats.
