2003 Lexus GX 470 Base Review
Quality, Quality, Quality
Rough Ride at Times
Great Vehicle With Some Imperfections. — I own a 2003 Lexus GX 470. Out of 10, I would give the vehicle an 8.5. The reason I do not give a 10 is for ride quality. Although it is not terrible, it is a much more jittery vehicle then I would have expected.

2003 Lexus GX 470 Review
Smooth, Reliable, Super Quiet, Comfortable, with great towing ability.
Honestly, I had a hard time coming up with a con regarding this car. I guess I'd have to say that there is no rear seating heating controls in the 2003, however, heat reaches the 3rd row easily (rear passengers can't adjust temp.)
Incredible Car, With The Ability To Function As A Truck. — This car is incredible! Super smooth ride, everyone who has driven it tells me they can't believe how beautifully it drives. I think the other reviewer might want to get their car's alignment, etc. checked out. I was rear ended in my car while I was stopped. The person who hit me was going 50 mph and didn't even brake before impact. I can't believe how well my car handled the impact. Surprisingly the car had little damage. The auto body shop commented on how well these cars do in accidents. It is a very solid car. While researching SUV's in 2003, this vehicle was one of the highest (if not the highest) rated for safety. I feel extremely safe driving it. LOVE the 8 seats (sadly the new 2010 GX460 has only 7) we have had many occasion to use all 8 seats too! It costs between $40.00 - $50.00 to fill up, but has a 20 gallon tank. It isn't the greatest in gas mileage, however, I understand that you can't have a car that size and quality without paying more for mileage. Superbly reliable, amazing quality, very comfortable. I have always followed the recommended maintenance plans and have never had any problems. People who drive my car offer to buy it off of me all of the time. We pull our horses (2) in a steel trailer, and our boat without feeling any strain. We live in Michigan and it is FANTASTIC in our hilly/snowy area. LOVE IT! I plan on buying the same model, if I can get over losing the 8th seat! The dealership told me that they dropped the 8th seat as the new 3rd row is automatic and they needed room for the motor. Argh! I may just buy a 2009 instead just to get the 8th seat. I find the inside appearance to be really classy and beautiful. The engineers thought of everything - for 2003 they were way ahead of the game. I do like the side swing rear door vs. a pull down door. It has never been a problem and I do parallel park. If you are remotely interested, go test drive this car and you'll see just what I mean. This car is a dream to drive, 12 straight hours of driving and it was a dream!
