    2007 Lexus GX470
  1. Just got this information emailed to me by my dealer: Lexus will release a all-new 2010 GX 460 in late December or early January. Complete or finalized details have yet to be disclosed. Below you'll see preliminary info just in from the factory. If you would like to be included in my short list of individuals to be notified of changes and arrivals, let me know. Late Breaking News Release: The All-New 2010 GX 460 comes with a new 4.6L engine and more power (301 hp; 329 lb-ft torque). The new six-speed automatic transmission also helps provide 13% better MPG than the previous GX, making it the best-in-class V8 fuel economy and competitive with some six-cylinder models. In addition to this progressive engine, the GX also brings with it some exciting new features all of which are standard for the base model: Power fold-flat third row 10 airbags (best-in-class) Second row seatbelt pretensioners Heated/Ventilated front seats (first in class) Rear back-up camera with standard 4.2” screen (does not require Navigation) Integrated XM® Radio (90-day trial included), Bluetooth Multi-Media, and iPod-USB/MP3 Auxillary Active front headrests Significantly upgraded nine speaker audio Electronic transfer case Larger 18” wheels Smart Access Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System Safety Connect™ (Complimentary one-year trial subscription.) The GX is the “right-sized” and most compact (in length) SUV in its segment. The exterior reflects the new L-finesse design aesthetic. The exterior also demonstrates some new key convenience and styling features such as the flip-open rear glass hatch (for easier access to the cargo area), integrated rear door handle, and new standard rear spoiler with hidden wiper. The GX color palette is also completely revamped and includes two all-new exterior colors, Knight’s Armor (gray) and Claret Mica, and three interior colors, Ecru, black, and Sepia (brand new brown). The 2010 GX interior not only has the new standard power fold-flat third row, but access to the third row has been made easier via the tilting and sliding 40/20/40 split second row seat. A new center console design offers the driver more storage and functionality including easy to reach iPod and 12-volt outlets. While the GX base model comes full of standard luxury amenities, Lexus has also developed a “Premium” model which adds semi-aniline leather, HID with AFS, heated wood steering wheel, heated second row outboard seats, power electrochromic exterior side mirrors with power retract, headlamp cleaners, rear A/C, illuminated front scuff plates, rear air suspension, auto leveler, adaptive variable suspension, and color keyed body side molding.

  2. Sounds like manufacturing defect to me. They even admitted that you are not the only one. Unless you shoved something through the window, it's not your fault, it's a defect. I'm sure they'll claim their warranty doesn't cover glass or such, just start yelling and ask to speak to corporate. You have bumper to bumper for 36k miles for things like this. Actually, you have a 4yr 50k warranty for things like this ;) Call Lexus up and complain
  3. Would you send me instructions on how you did the override for the DVD to work in the front while the car is moving? DVD Override instructions
  4. I had it done at a high end car stereo shop in Houston. It can be done. I have an 07 GX.
  5. 16.9 MPG Average with K&N Air Filter
  6. We had a 02 ML320 decked out and bought our 07 GX470 from Sterling McCall Lexus on 59 in Houston. We love the car and are very impressed with the quality and comfort of the Lexus. I just wish it had HID's like the our ML and Parktronic... cool feature as well.
  7. I would checkout Blackberry Forums because I seem to remember that it is a security feature on the Blackberry that will only allow you to use the bluetooth device as a speaker and mic, like if you were wearing a bluetooth earpiece. The security is in place to protect all your information such as emails and such. Hope this helps!
  8. I know that it was just wiring, no external box needed such as the coastaltech. I think I remember them saying something about the transmission speed wire as well going to the back of the head unit, but it could have been something else. Also my NAV unit still works and locks me out until I am at a complete stop or in park, this just fixes the DVD player feature and Bluetooth touch control so that you can use them while driving.
  9. Because I would imagine that the emergency brake wire directly from the emergency brake goes to other electronics as well, I for one would not want to risk that when the radio is easy to pull.
  10. This is how my DVD and Bluetooth bypass was done. They traced the emergency brake wire to the back of the stereo, cut it then grounded the wire from the back of the stereo and my eveything works great now and my wife can watch movies on long trips up front.
