The Lexus GX470 is a prominent model in the luxury SUV segment, a product of the distinguished luxury division of Toyota. Built on the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado platform, the vehicle, also known as Toyota Land Cruiser Prado (J150), launched in 2002 and has since earned accolades including "Four Wheeler of the Year" in 2003 and 2004 by Four Wheeler Magazine, and the highest-ranked premium luxury SUV in initial quality in 2005 by J.D. Power and Associates. Kelley Blue Book also awarded it the Best Resale Value Award in 2006. Assembled in Tahara, Aichi in Japan, the first-generation GX470 utilized a 4.7 L 2UZ-FE V8 engine, mated to a 5-speed A750F automatic transmission. In 2004, for the 2005 model year, powertrain upgrades led to an increase in power, reaching 270 hp, and achieved an Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle II certification in the U.S. A Sport model was added featuring the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System and enhanced styling, including smoked bezel headlamps, chrome trim, and black birdseye maple wood. The second-generation GX470, in production since 2009, was designed by Yuji Fujiwara and Atsuichi Suga, powered by a 4.0 L 1GR-FE V6 engine (China) and a 4.6 L 1UR-FE V8 engine, paired with a 6-speed A760F automatic transmission. Interior enhancements included a power-folding two-passenger third row, flat folding for increased cargo capacity, and luxury features such as a Mark Levinson sound system, Rear Seat Entertainment System, three-zone climate control, semi-aniline leather, and heated second-row seats and steering wheel.
The Lexus GX470, known for its impressive off-road capabilities, can still face common issues like engine failure and braking and suspension issues if frequently used in harsh conditions. Engine failure often starts with strange noises such as squealing or rattling from the engine, followed by rough running, misfiring, power reduction, and poor fuel economy. In some cases, the engine could overheat, leading to starting issues. Once the Check Engine Light is illuminated, check the spark plug, oil filter, oxygen sensor, air filter, drive belt, and timing belt. Braking failure, ranking third in common GX470 issues, is characterized by brake noise, brake fluid leaks, and severe brake pedal vibration; typically, the brake pad set and brake caliper are the culprits. Suspension failure symptoms like abnormal tire wear, grinding or roaring noises from the tires, and a vibrating steering wheel can usually be traced to a faulty strut housing and wheel bearing. Beyond diagnosing common problems, routine maintenance is crucial for increasing the vehicle's lifespan. Regularly replacing parts such as the wiper blade, which clears the windshield and thus contributes to driving safety, is essential. Also, regular maintenance of other parts like the seat belt, door lock, and emblem helps ensure optimal vehicle performance.
