You'll Like The 2008 Lexus GX If...

When luxury, comfort and loads of technology mean just as much as spirited performance and go-almost-anywhere capability, the GX 470 deserves prime consideration as your possible next SUV.

Great car for mom transporting kids around!

The brakes can be squeaky, the seat heaters no longer work, but it is in great condition and has over 150, 000 miles and is still in great condition. I would like it if it was a newer version with push to start, automatic start before getting in the car, and cooling seats as well.

- Katie K

Luxury vehicles are well worth the price. My Lexus is older, but still going strong.

I ADORE this SUV. I've never had a luxury care before, and I won't go back. It's comfortable, rides like a dream, and is powerful. Only complaint I have is my CD player is on the fritz.

- Dianna D

It is incredibly comfortable. While it's a big vehicle, it drives and rides like a sedan.

We got an incredible deal on a used Lexus GX470. It was in excellent condition and I love driving it.
