2006 Lexus GX 470 User Reviews
Sport Utility shown
- No trim specified for this review
- overall comfort, reliability
- side openning rear door, poor engine performance for V8, poor gas mileage, rear seat comfort
Previously owned a 2004 BMW X5 3.0 (6 cyl) which is a much, much better performing SUV than the 2006 Lexus GX470. Also, Lexus missed the mark with its sub-standard (by Lexus standard) luxury interior. However, we just completed a round trip between Ft. Lauderdale and Calgary, Canada and I must say we were satisfied with the comfort of the GX470. although the lackluster performance on the mountain passes was disappointing.
We occassionaly use the GX470 to tow a 24' boat (4700 lbs) and barely have enough torque to pull the boat up the ramp in 4WD low gear.
We are currently in the process of trading the GX470 for a BMW X5 4.4.
