The Lexus GX 470 combines a comfortable, luxurious interior and capable off-road performance. We liked the quiet interior, excellent fit and finish and the smooth, quiet powertrain. But agility and handling are not its forte and the ride is unsettled. The third-row seat is small and when folded, consumes cargo space and reduces visibility.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"It is powerful and quiet. Cornering is excellent. Perhaps the only area where it is merely mortal is bouncing over rain channels in the road. It bounces a bit."

MIKE H., AZ (2007 Lexus GX)

"Feels top-heavy; much sway through turns. Far too little Driver Seat leg room."

Anonymous, NV (2007 Lexus GX)

"The car has a feel of safety and comfort."

Anonymous, TX (2007 Lexus GX)

"It is very responsive and comfortable."

Anonymous, TX (2007 Lexus GX)

"For an SUV the ride is quiet and smooth. The V8 engine is very responsive but still manages to get a respectable 18 mpg. Over bumps or rough roads it provides a smooth ride and a feeling of full control."

James C., MI (2007 Lexus GX)

"excellent handling and performance"

Anonymous, WA (2007 Lexus GX)

"1. Ride is smooth and quiet 2. Ride is boat-like, i.e. a bit too much sway and roll on curves 3. Driver leg room is too short. Big issue on long trip."

Anonymous, NV (2007 Lexus GX)

"Exceptional qualities in every respect. This is a tremendous automobile."

Pamela F., AR (2007 Lexus GX)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"very comfortable on long drives"

Anonymous, CA (2007 Lexus GX)

"Very limited Driver seat leg room. Poorly designed center console. Obtrusive, non-ergonomic transmission stick. Smooth ride. Reliable"

Anonymous, NV (2007 Lexus GX)

"AT nine years old, there is quite a bit of road noise. The car is still quite comfortable. Although many newer less expensive cars have some of the features almost standard now, for the model year they are excellent."

MONICA E., GA (2007 Lexus GX)

"Not a single rattle at over 115k, no cuts in the seats and all switches still work."

John B., MO (2007 Lexus GX)

"Roomy, quiet and comfortable..great interior quality."

Anonymous, NY (2007 Lexus GX)

"Very comfortable cabin and seating"

Anonymous, WA (2007 Lexus GX)

"This is a very all season roadworthy vehicle but it rides more like a truck than an SUV. I feel very secure in serious snow and ice with this rig."

Russell A., MT (2007 Lexus GX)

"The GX is a very comfortable 4 wheel drive vehicle. It handles rough roads and trails effortlessly. This hurts it on pavement but there is never any worries on dirt."

Mike H., AZ (2007 Lexus GX)

"Extremely smooth, quiet ride at all times. Very comfortable front and back."

Pamela F., AR (2007 Lexus GX)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
