THE JURY IS STILL OUT by CAREFREE FROM CAVECREEK on 03/10/2003. Trim: 1999 Lexus LX 470, Owned 2 years.
Pros: STYLISH, COMFORTABLE AND NICE TO DRIVE. POWER IS ALRIGHT AND IT IS VERY WELL THOUGHT OUT IN IT'S ENGINEERING AND DESIGN.
Cons: THE WARRANTY HAD A CONFLICT ON THE SUPENSION HYDRALICS, SIMALAR COMPONENTS ON EARLIER MODELS WERE COVERED. IT WAS PRICY AT OVER $2300. PARTS AND LABOR. I FIND THE VEHICLE PRICY ON THE REPAIRS, (ANTENNA MASK REPLACEMENT OVER $200., HEADLIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT OVER $70. THE LENS IF BROKEN IS OVER $600. I HAVE REPLACED THE FRONT BRAKES AND ROTORS (I BELIEVE OVER $600) IT IS CURRENTLY AT THE DEALER REPLACING THE REAR PADS AND ROTORS. THE ROTORS SHOULD NOT NEED REPLACING IF THE PADS ARE CHANGED REGULARLY I THOUGHT. MY OLDER GERMAN MADE VEHICLE IS LESS EXPENSIVE REALIZING APPLES TO ORANGES IN MAKE AND MODEL..
Overall review: IN COMPARING BEFORE I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE I DIDN'T FIND THE FORD, LINCOLN, OR GM PRODUCTS WERE AS NICE FOR DIFFERENT REASONS MAINLY THE LEXUS SEEMED BETTER BUILT. THE NAVIGATOR HAD MORE POWER BUT WAS NOT AS NICE. THE ONE VEHICLE I REGRET NOT COMPARING WAS THE ESCALADE WHICH SEEMS POPULAR NOW BUT IN COMPARING MY NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS I STILL FEEL QUITE COMFORTABLE WITH MY PURCHASE. I HAVE HAD ONLY A LITTLE OVER A YEAR OF EXPERIENCE AND I FEEL THE REPAIRS ARE A BIT PREMATURE FOR A QUALITY VEHICLE BUT REALIZING THINGS CAN HAPPEN AND NOW THAT THE REPAIRS ARE DONE AND I CAN BASE THE RELIABILITY ON MY OWNERSHIP I AM ANIOUS TO SEE THE RESULTS.

High priced luxury SUV by A CarPoint Consumer on 12/01/2000. Trim: 1999 Lexus LX 470, Owned 1 year.
Pros: (No data provided)
Cons: (No data provided)
Overall review: The LX470 does it all in luxury. You cannot really do better if you want a large SUV. The price is a little extreme, however.

"Maximum Comfort and Driving Satisfaction" by Sam on 08/20/2013. Trim: 1999 Lexus LX 470, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: The 470 is very comfortable on long trips; quiet and very stable on the road. I trust the vehicle to transport my wife to and from her medical appointments 100 miles away. She feels safe and arrives fresh and rested from her visits. Recently drove more than 1,700 miles in 10 days (vacation) in total comfort. Lots of room for luggage and coolers, etc. and averaged almost 18 mpg. Dealer service and attention is excellent
Cons: Driver seat seems to set a bit too high in the rear...even with adjustment.
Overall review: Buy one and plan on driving it 300,000 miles or more.
