  1. We are building a new home! Our first home purchase ever!

    Looks good Josh! It’s always nice to take a journal photo of the building progress. Something to look back on once you move in.
  2. Who is still here? Fun threads like the old days?

    Once every a dozen blue moons, I’m on here too lol. Weird how when I started lurking this forum 14 years ago, we only had a ONE Gx470 in our garage. Now, including my cars in Manila, we have 1 Rx300 Silversport, 2 GX470s, and 1 LX570. Oh and a BMW... don’t hate on the BMW too much lol.
  3. Acquiring a new CPO 2014 LX

    I believe it is a top spec. Original MSRP of $91,490. Thank you. Will have to learn more about this vehicle even though it shares a lot of similarities with my GX.\
  4. Acquiring a new CPO 2014 LX

    Hey guys. I know I've hardly been around this forum even though I'm the LX moderator. Anyways I'm excited to pick up a new to me, CPO LX this coming weekend. I'll have to familiarize myself with the topics discussed here about this vehicle.
  5. How Many Miles On Your Gx? Any Problems?

    As of 8/17 80k miles on the clock for my Cali GX. 13k miles on my 2007 in Manila
  6. Paint Pealing On 2004 Gx 470

    I personally have joined the band wagon of owning a Blizzard Pearl GX myself. I purchased it slightly used. I'll keep you guys posted about my observation of my 07 GX470 that is located in a humid warm country.
  7. How Many Miles On Your Gx? Any Problems?

    Currently my 03 has 79,000 miles. Running like a champ. Just acquired a 2007 GX470 with only 12,000 miles on the ODO. It's my vacation car in the Philippines so this is a new experience for me as I will see how this vehicle can handle the tropical weather of my country.
  8. 600 lbs motorcycle hitch carrier on 99 RX300

    I agree. The RX300 wasn't made for the heavy duty hauling. I know I overloaded mine one time helping a friend move his stuffs out of his apartment to his new home and the distance was only a short 5 miles but I could feel that the vehicle was having a challenge pulling the trailer with, who knows how many pounds worth of household items on it.
  9. Paint Pealing On 2004 Gx 470

    I find this surprising that the Blizzard Pearl has had many paint peeling issues over the years. As I previously had mentioned, they rolled out the Blizzard Pearl to replace the Sand Dollar Pearl that the first few GX470s rolled out with (including mine) due to a paint peel issue. *knock on wood* my Sand Dollar Pearl GX has had no paint peel issues at all. Always garaged, no body work.
  10. Only 136 Miles - Check Engine+vsc Off+vsc Trac

    I find it odd that I had this issue happen to me twice. The first time around they said that some sensor was dirty so they "cleaned" it. The second time around (2 weeks ago) they said it was a faulty gas cap. I only have 77k miles on my 2003 GX.
  11. Denny,

    Hello! I am hoping that you can help. I'm new and here is my post:

    I have a clean and well-maintained 2003 GX 470 with 171K. All maintenance performed – no leaks, no issues, etc. Recently, it started making a ticking noise when warm. It also had a slight "knock" to the engine as well. I had the lifters adjusted and the PCV was replaced. It's definitely better but not "Lexus-smooth." The mechanic and dealership say it's characteristic of this engine/year. I've read other threads that mention similar issues but nothing specific unless I can't find the thread.  I've noticed that when I press the gas pedal down while idling the knock noise lessens, the engine remains smooth, the ticking seems be less severe as well. Can anyone out there give me some guidance? Thank you!




    Thank you in advance for your time!

  12. What Sits In Your Garage Next To Your Lexus?

    Did a little garage updating....
  13. 03 Gx470 Dashboard Cracks

    Yes there will be a TSB that Lexus will release very soon. I plan on getting mine replaced the first moment they release the TSB.
  14. Help! 2000 Gx470 W/ 216K Miles

    2000? Did you mean 2003? 2003 is the first year that the GX470 came out.
  15. What Sits In Your Garage Next To Your Lexus?

    Oh thank you! I really didn't veer off too far from my previous E60 2009 528i. I only opted for the 535i back in 2012 because they changed the engine of the 528i and made it a 4cyl turbo. Color combo was the exact same as my 528i but I added just the technology package just to get the backup camera. I almost decided to get alpine white in 2012 but decided to stick with Space Gray. We shall see next year if I stick to Space Gray or try something new ;-)
