Lexus Magazine Feature on GX 460


Lexus GX 460 Lexus Magazine

Lexus Magazine has a nice feature up on the GX 460:

The freeway is white with snow. The windshield wipers can barely keep up with the endless flakes rapidly hitting the glass. Gripping the wheel, I glance down at the navigation system. Just 20 miles to my destination, but it could take an hour or more if the traffic in front of me slows to a soggy, monotonous crawl.

Conditions couldn’t be more perfect.

This is my third storm in a week of test-driving the 2010 GX 460, which Lexus redesigned and released last fall, almost quietly…But over the winter, SUV drivers and veteran Lexus owners started to take notice: this mid-size SUV—larger than the RX, smaller than the LX—was selling very well. And after 1,200 miles of driving it through New Mexico and Texas, I’m starting to understand why.

I always enjoy reviews that get away from pure stats and figures and bring a personal touch — it makes for an interesting contrast to most vehicle reviews.

    Rwsmith5I have a GX 460 Model 2012 My park assist picture works fine on the navigation screen BUT… the beep – sound of the warning is very high pitched not loud. I have talked to the dealer and directly to lexus  in California. Neither seems to be able to help me. Anyone out there have any ideas that might help make the sound louder? I came close to backing into someone the other day because I couldn’t hear the warning beep. Thanks Dick SmithLikeReply
