At this point in time, most luxury SUVs had evolved into pampering on-road transport for their well-heeled buyers, backing away from off-road prowess and their truck-based roots. So does that make the Lexus GX a dinosaur? Nothing is "crossover" or "car-based" in this old-school vehicle. Consider the GX a Toyota 4Runner that was sent to finishing school, earning straight-A's when it was there.

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

"We can get into some traffic situations that require fast acceleration and the GX does not disappoint."

Anonymous, VA (2013 Lexus GX)

"Terrible fuel economy on an outdated truck frame. Lexus driving experience is subpar and quality/reliability has gone downward. This is not a practical family car. Better to get a crossover or a minivan"

Anonymous, CA (2013 Lexus GX)

"We owned a V8 Limited 4Runner prior to the GX. The GX lacks the power to weight ratio and handling of the 4R. The GX is slower."

NEIL L., TN (2013 Lexus GX)


Anonymous, NJ (2013 Lexus GX)


Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"I am the rider of this vehicle and we take it on road trips - so I find it passenger comfortable for the long hauls and we can carry a lot of stuff in the way back."

Anonymous, VA (2013 Lexus GX)

"Very quiet ride"

Anonymous, WI (2013 Lexus GX)

"The ride can be a little rough depending on the road surface and the body of the vehicle."

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.
