Pros: Comfort and driving position
Cons: Fuel consumption and the fact that the U.S. model (I'm in Australia) get wood grain
Advice: Check the rest and come back to the best. But don't buy it unless you really need the features.Everything about the car is wonderful. It's very comfortable to drive, especially over long distances. There's plenty of room for my family (wife plus 3 kids)and all their bits. I drove many SUV's but nothing except the LX470 came close, but I couldn't stretch that far. My brother has the BMW X5, and whilst the Toyota certainly wouldn't catch the BMW on a straight highway, the Toyota leaves the BMW for dead where it really counts for SUVs. Offroad. Great car, fuel consumption is a but high.
Pros: Rear backup camera
Cons: gas mileage
Advice: buy one that is one year old and get the extended warranty. The first year has the most depreciationThis truck rides like a luxury coupe. It is the Lexus LX 470 for $12,000 less. We absolutely love it.
