Pros: off road capability

Advice: use brake only when is necesary just in an emergency situation, use compressionThe lexus Lx safe my life and the life of my grandmother: on day I dont saw a car and and I pass the street and the cor hit me but the lexus Lx have a steel bars int he five dors and the steel bars do not let pass the colision to the cabin and thank the steel bars my grandmother is safe ( the collision was of the side of my grandmother). The reason by wich I buy the lexus Lx is for the capability in offroading, I have a farm at 3 hours of my house and I need to go to the extreem of the hill and the lexus has a four wheel traction control that helps to regain traction in rudgest terain or soft terain like in mod or sand I always had an SUV veicle but in other SUV veicles when I go in uo hills in my farm the other veicles is to much of slide and in the lexus it is very little what slides thank the 4 wheel traction control and the center diferential lock, another thing that help a lot in offroading is the suspension system because the suspension system of the lexus Lx is especially design for offroading, the suspension has extremly wheel long travel, the lexus always weel are normal because the suspension weel adapt to the terain, the lexus has exceptional handling in the curves the veicle skid control (VSC) wheel help to the veicle dont star to sliding, the comfort of this car no other car has it the camfor of the lexus is exeptional, the lexus has a maximum speed of 110mph (electronical controled)
Cons: I can't think of a truly negative feature in this car
Advice: don't get anything extra from the salespeople-it has everythingMy husband and I were skeptical about getting the LX470 having gotten used to sportier cars-our other car being a Mercedes SL500 and ML430. We drove the Range Rover 4.6 and just about everything else before driving the LX470. I have to say that the LX470 is amazing, it is quite simply the most comfortable, responsive and truly off-road car available at any price made by anybody! We both tend to hop in the LX470 over the other cars for errands and certainly long trips. It has awesome brakes and steering-you don't feel like you're driving close to 6000lbs-you just can't help feeling like king of the road though. And its so quiet the only quieter car I can remember driving or being in is the LS400. You may pay more for the LX470 but its worth it!
