- Design flaw that Lexus has chosen to ignore
Our 2004 Lexus GX470 is our first Lexus and it will be our last. I am going to caution all of you GX470 owners that in time, you will have the same problem that our GX and four of our friends have... a clunking in the rear of the vehicle after coming to a stop. It almost feels like someone has "tapped" the rear bumper behind you. It was explained to us by service managers at two different Lexus dealerships that it is a condition with the drive shaft and the air suspension. They also informed us that Lexus is aware of the problem and has chosen to ignore the defect stating that it is ACCEPTABLE and nothing can be done to fix it. I'm sorry folks, but with their reputation and price tags, Lexus should be ashamed! Please note that on a local level the dealerships have made every effort to rectify the problem including new drive shafts, but the irritating "clunk" in the rear cannot be fixed. Add to this the several times the vehicle has been in the shop for electrical problems, and constant steering wheel shimmy (wheel balancing extremely sensitive)...we're not impressed. As I mentioned earlier, four of our friends have the same vehicle and they ALL have the same complaint. One has gotten rid of the car and one is returning his in 6 months (lease will be up). The other two friends have decided to live with it. We will not "live with it". Good luck GX470 owners!
