You are in the Lexus LX 470/GX 470/GX 460 and LX 570
What is this discussion about?
Volvo XC90, Lexus GX 470, Car Buying, SUV

We own an '04 xc90, 3rd row, nav, dealer installed dvd, 2.5t engine. We have loved it. We are now at 80k miles. It's in the shop once every other month, minimum 1k service. If we take it to independent shop, a bit less, but we've found that we invariably have issues that independent shops have had trouble spotting.
Looking at trading in for a new GX470. We have a large dog and two kids- with the seats out we are fine. Huge pain in the backside, but I will prefer having stress-free post-warranty ownership. The purchase price is several k more on the Lexus, but over 5-7 year ownership I'm 100% certain it will be less costly to own.
That being said, the Volvo worked for us in every regard except the last 20k reliability issues.

I drove the XC90 many times and I don't really like the feel of the car or the ride. Also, backing up in the XC90 is difficult in my opinion. I just bought the GX470 last week, and I love it. Everything about the GX470 is great, the ride is very smooth and very comfortable. The interior is beautiful and if you're looking for a nice luxury SUV, then go checkout the Lexus GX470.

On April 13, 2010, Consumer Reports told readers not to buy the 2010 GX 460. It seems the vertical stability control could cause an accident. It was the first such recommendation for a car since 2001. Seems that lexus is still not quite up to volvo safety levels.
