You wont regret owning this Lexus by Hard to please and particular from Chicago on 11/26/2013. Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Excellent ride, build quality, no rattles, powerful and refined drivetrain. Bluetooth, GPS We preferred the GX 470 over the GX 460, so we bought an 08 with 58K and its as nice as if it were manufactured this year. That's a sign of quality.
Cons: A 7 speed transmission may help gas mileage. However we just took a trip in high head winds, rain and got 20 MPG Get rid of the OEM Bridgestones or Dunlop tires. Buy Michelin M/S 2's for optimum ride and performance in all conditions.
Overall review: This is the finest SUV ever manufactured. It is very intuitive , comfortable and secure. My wife says when you close the doors you feel like your in a safe and welcoming cocoon. We have owned BMW's, Lexus's, Large Toyota's and extensively road tested MB's, Range Rovers, Porsche etc. and the bottom line is you can drive this Lexus through just about anything and not have to worry about being stranded due to a breakdown. This GX 470 is rock solid but oh so smooth!

Worth The $$$ by Ron from Maryland on 09/22/2008. Trim: 2008 Lexus GX 470 Sport Utility, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Beautiful vehicle, majot upgrade over Tahoe I used to drive. Quality across the board. Can't rave enough about the dealership too.
Cons: Only con so far is the gas mileage and the fact that it uses 91 octane fuel. Hopefully with time, the gas mileage will improve.
Overall review: Well worth the money. I've had several SUV's but this one is far and away, head and shoulders above anything I've ever owned or driven

Ultimate Family Traveling car by from Orlando on 08/07/2008. Trim: 2008 Lexus GX 470 Sport Utility, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Ride is very very comfortable. Extreamly quite. We were looking at other vehicles in the same class, but this beats them all for comfortabilty, features and handling. Built like a tank. Love the Automatic Wipers for the rain, we got equipped with Rear Entertainment, XM radio, Navi, and Rear camera. Has all the bells and whistles that Mercedes did not have! Gas mileage is good for this type of vehicle.
Cons: I do dislike the headlights. I think they should have been a better quality.
Overall review: When driving to save mileage, this vehicle should be driven with passion obiding all speed limits. Enjoy your ride!
