You are in the Lexus LX 470/GX 470/GX 460 and LX 570
What is this discussion about?
Lexus LX 470, SUV

The LX 470 will get some changes for 2001. Some thing that will change are puddle lights for running boards, and the addition of a compass and a DVD-ROM NAV system. Expect some very minor exterior changes also. However, these options will probably cost you over 60.
The Toyota Land Cruiser production is set to end after the 2002 model year, which leaves this SUV up in the air after '02. Will they base the new LX off of the Sequoia (Please god no), keep the platform alive only on the Lexus side of things, etc. So expect a major change for 2003, but nothing before then.
I live in Florida, so snow traction really isn't a problem here.

I appreciate your effort in your message, but I am not sure if you answer it because I am not sure what was my question.
Your beloved theresa-reefer never returned my e-mail other than that infamouns automated response. Exactly 24 hours later, I went to a dealer and picked up a lx470. Well, sometimes internet proves to be useless.
Now, please kindly advise what the heck of 30 days service to check the nut and bolt? And if the engine was previously break-in in factory, what was the heck for the limitation to drive under 55mph for the first 1000 miles? Why is the manual specifically warning of engine oil consumption and check engine oil on each and every gas refuel? Well, on the upside, the wood steering wheel looks good though I did not want it in the first place, thanks to the Lx470 one trim fits all. Regards,

Just drive it like you normally drive and enjoy it.

If any of you are interested in a used LX470, my Black/Tan 470 may be the ticket.
Shot me off an email with your interest and I'm sure we'll work out a great deal. I'm in the LA area of CA.
#58 of 1474 Wind noise
Aug 11, 2000 (7:50 pm)
I have had my LX 470 about two months. I notice a lot of interior wind noise above 50mph when I have just one window down, or just the two rear windows down. It is very annoying. Also, as my dog likes to ride with the two rear window down, I notice the rear seat belts flap in the wind, even if I have the clip attached to hold them back. Has anyone else noticed this? I am going in for service next week and intend to see what the dealer has to say.
Otherwise, I love the vehicle. It is incomparable for ride and quality. I drove them all before buying it. It is expensive, but got almost 10% off the sticker, so I was happy.

dont know about the rest of you, but i am finding
that the lx470 is a much better value in my market. toyota dealers want 3k over invoice, or the best price ive found is approx, 52k all with 3rd seat,running boards, roof rack.Gulf states toyota dist...will not sell stripped down. Im buying a loaded lx470 for 2500 more. found the car and bought over the net. good luck to all

I got my LX last week at the invoice price; Call Theresa Reefer for a quote. Very large selection and a pleasant experience. Swift
#61 of 1474 navigation system for lx470
Aug 12, 2000 (2:15 pm)
can anybody tell me what's the best after-market set-up for the lx470 and what's the best price for the hardware+install. i know the stock stereo system is pioneer (ie could the pioneer gps work better?)-but then i have a nakamichi setup.
seems a japanese brand is the best (alpine or pioneer) but there's philips too.
your inputs would be appreciated

where did you read that the LC platform is being ended in 2002. Since Toyota makes this vehicle for various world markets and Toyota is big on tradition why would they kill a high profit seller?
All indicators I have is that they will keep both alive as the TLC/LX are more upscale vs the Sequioa that is aimed at the Expedition & Tahoe markerts.
