Convince A Es330 Guy To Buy A Gx470.

Recommended Posts

My wife has an '04 ES330 that has been relatively reliable and I now need an SUV so I began looking for pre-owned 4Runner Limited models. What I found is an '04 GX470 with 80k mi for cheap so that peaked my curiosity. I've researched the GX here and see that is has the same type of drive-shaft clunk that the 4Runner has, but since the power-train warranty has expired on the GX that is troublesome. Furthermore I see what seems to be problems with the pneumatic suspension on the early year GX.

Anyhow, I figured I would get the opinions of current GX owners to see if they'd recommend the vehicle or not in regards to reliability... So what do you guys think about your ride?

Driveline clunk is fixed under a recall not your warranty.

I had my 2005 with no warranty fixed just a couple of months ago a no cost to me.

GX470 is just as reliable as the next Toyota... :)

The GX is bigger! :) :cheers:

MPG's suck compared to an ES though!
