Working Mom by Tina- Atlanta on 03/22/2012. Trim: 2007 Lexus GX 470 Sport Utility, Owned 5 years.
Pros: I am 5ft so I love the seat ajustments. The rear space is one of the reasons I purchased the GX, I removed the 3 row seating so the storage is great. It's a truck that drives like a car. The sound system is the tops.
Cons: Back door should be auto open and the window should work. Navigation - Can not find a lot of addresses even after I have paid to update the system, takes indirect routes, the worst ever! Handsfree phone system - No one can hear me sounds like I am in a bucket. Back Up Camera - A sensor distance/ alarm was a huge miss for a car this size, I have lots of dings. Gas Mileage - Why does it have to require prem gas? Storage - Needs more storage up front for coins and smaller items. Also the cup holders are the wrong size. 2nd row seating - Needs storage for kid stuff like dvds, small toys and so on and the cup holders are the wrong size.
Overall review: The GX is my third lexus and it has not disappointed. I will have this GX until she will not go anymore! No major issuess it's a great ride.

Should a had a V-8 Cadillac! by Johnny on 09/16/2008. Trim: 2007 Lexus GX 470 Sport Utility, Owned 1 year.
Pros: It didn't cost me anything to drive this car it was given to me as a company car. Thats what I liked the most
Cons: gas milage not good, outside styling bland, inside a little better. It did not feel sure footed, I would not take this off road, I felt safer in my older Expedition than I did in this thing.
Overall review: Please give me a Cadillac something with some style.

FIRST LEXUS, I AM HOOKED FOR LIFE. by BOB FROM NEW JERSEY on 08/20/2008. Trim: 2007 Lexus GX 470 Sport Utility, Owned 1 year.
Pros: VERY SMOOTH RIDE, GREAT HANDLING AND RODE FEEL. SMOOTH BRAKING WITH LEATHER INTERIOR THAT HAS A GREAT LOOK. EASY FOR 2-KIDS GETTING THEM TO SOCCER, BASEBALL WITH LOTS OF STORAGE FOR GEAR. NAV AND RADIO ARE THE BEST I'VE FOUND. TO MANY GREAT FEATURES TO NAME. NO PROBLEMS, LEXUS DEALER TAKES CARE OF EVERYTHING.
Cons: NEEDS MORE CONSOLE STORAGE, ALSO GET RID OF LOW/HIGH 4X4 SHIFTER STICK. JUST HAVE A BUTTON. 17.5 MILES PER GALLON CITY/HIGHWAY COULD BE IMPROVED, BUT I DO LIKE THE POWERFUL ENGINE PLENTY OF PICKUP.
Overall review: VERY COMFORTABLE SEATS, I AM 6' TALL AND HAVE PLENTY OF HEAD/LEG ROOM. NICE SUV FOR THE FAMILY. USES 91 OCTANE OR HIGHER GAS FOR THE ENGINE.

G(enuinely) X(cellent)!!! by Oyeronke from Lagos, Nigeria on 07/06/2008. Trim: 2007 Lexus GX 470 Sport Utility, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Frighteningly capable off road. Very easy car to drive, especially for a car this technically advanced. I develop new respect for this car every time I drive it, even after owning one for 9 months. Went through a flooded area (almost like a mini lake) yesterday where the water came up to the hood! Car did not even bat an eyelid! My husband's Mercedes GL 450 died in much less water (big baby, needs water wings). Traction on sand is also flawless.
Cons: Screen for the Rear Seat Entertainment System blocks rear view mirror when in use. Cornering feels somewhat tippy but ends up being okay. Cup holders are too small.
Overall review: This car is a gem. Largely underestimated but very capable. Comfortable, easy to use and will go almost anywhere. Buy it now!

' Lexus has the Technology - but not for the GX' by RUthi on 03/10/2008. Trim: 2007 Lexus GX 470 Sport Utility, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Everything is great except - See the cons.....
Cons: The rear door opens the wrong way. You cannot unload on the sidewalk without standing in the road. We owned 3 Rx's previously to this car and the electrical technology on the GX is 2 generations below the RX.
Overall review: Would I buy another ? if they did something to the rear door and improved the electrical features it uses on other models.
