Overpriced Joke by NewESVowner on 02/28/2004. Trim: 2001 Lexus LX 470, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Nice Interior, Quiet ride, So So Engine, Trick 3rd row seats
Cons: Old ,seriously outdated styling that makes ugly G500 Benz look good. Styling not far enough away from Land Cruiser to justify price difference. Seqoia looks WAY better and should be the LX 470. Smooth but underpowered V8 compared to others in class. Overinflated price has Japanese engineers laughing all the way to the bank. Had a few minor motor problems. Small water leak in heavy rain leaves rear carpet damp once in a while. Can't beleive I sold My Denali XL for this heap.
Overall review: Hey everyone, buy the LX470 for $60K and look like an over tanned, 55+ empty nester woman driving in Florida to thier Botox appointment!! REPLACED LX470 WITH 04 CADILLAC ESCALADE ESV. E S V IS 10 out of 10!!!!!!!!! Excellent.

LX 470 Review by An MSN Autos Consumer on 12/30/2003. Trim: 2001 Lexus LX 470, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Fits the Family, and the dog, cat, tools..... Children are quite when watching the tube Seats Powerful V8
Cons: Milage is a horror, but you probably dont care about that if you bought a 60+ thousand dollar car Can i see behind me, no. Too many gizmos, unless you like that sort of thing
Overall review: Need to bring around 4 Full Siza adults, and 3 Kids ( younger then 10 ), then this maybe the car for you. IT will fit everyone, and everything. If you go to the track and need a good vehicle for tools, this is one, tows smoothly and quicker than a 75' Rover. If you are a toyota loyalist this is you sleigh, the high end flagship Okay

Ugly fridge by Anusz from Los Angeles,Ca. on 08/27/2001. Trim: 2001 Lexus LX 470, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Luxurious, prestigious, ample room.
Cons: It looks like a refridgerator, it's too tall to handle well, overpriced, short on practicality, bad fuel mileage, did I mention it looks like a fridge?
Overall review: Seriously folks, who really gets the most out of an S.U.V? They're basically a station wagon but their height and price is raised. Ever take an S.U.V off road? No, join the 98% of the other S.U.V drivers who don't. Save yourself the cash and buy a station wagon. They're cooler than this refridgerator!

Get an X5! or Escalade by New York, NY on 07/17/2001. Trim: 2001 Lexus LX 470, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The interior is alright. And cool DVD nav.
Cons: I hate it.
Overall review: Why get this UGLY, and I stress the word..... UGLY......SUV, when you could get something more Sexier, and beautiful like an BMW X5 4.4 sp. I had the LX470 for about a month for a company car. It was ok, but ugly, after that I got the X5. very nice. BETTER interior WAY BETTER exterior...FASTER. LX is SLOW!!!! X5's looks draw more attention, and I am going to put a deposit on one. I also love the 2002 Escalade. It looks lovely! well have fun in your LX. Did I mention is is SOOOOOOO boring to drive, like any other Lexus, if you want good luxury go to Mercedes, and BMW,

NO Regrets!!!!!!!!!!! by Mark from NY on 05/11/2001. Trim: 2001 Lexus LX 470, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Best SUV on the market! I had two 4Runners (also a great SUV) and was constantly amazed at the number of Range Rover owners ALWAYS at the Toyota dealership when I was dropping in for scheduled maintenance TRADING IN their Rovers for the Toyota Land Cruiser. After fully intending on buying a Land Cruiser, I got a great deal on the LX470 and couldn't pass it up. No regrets!!!
Cons: Nothing, except gas mileage, but if that bothers you, you shouldn't be looking at a 65k vehicle.
Overall review: Never thought I could find a vehicle that would keep my SL500 in the garage!!!
