The community thinks...
Excellent SUV with a mediocre Navigation System by An MSN Autos Consumer on 09/23/2005. Trim: 2005 Lexus GX 470 Sport Utility, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Very comfortable. Good visibility. Controls easy to access. Rear tailgate door not a problem with right-hand hinge. Not sure how many drivers actually park against a curb versus a lot space. Gas mileage (about 16 mpg in the city) much better than anticipated. Lots of power. Excellent brakes. Lexus service is superior to all other premium-brand automobiles. My dealer is open seven days/week until 11:00pm...you can't beat that when your family schedule is as full as ours. This is a real SUV that has great four-wheel performance. It doesn't leave you wondering whether off-road driving is a questionable option.
Cons: GPS navigation difficult to program and not intuitive. Navigation sometimes suggests routes that are illogical, even in large, urban areas. Rear DVD awkward to control with DVD disk placement in vulnerable position. Trip computer awkward to use--I'd rather see this incorporated into the DVD controls on the dash. The DVD navigation system on my Acura MDX was much more intuitive, provided more usable information, and allowed for easy enroute adjustment of navigation commands. Distance between accelerator and brake pedals too close; causes occasional foot slippage.
Overall review: Aside from some annoying Navigation System features, this is an excellent SUV and well worth the price...which, by the way, is much less than you would expect to pay for an SUV with the features and reliability it has.
