Pics? Info? That sounded like a very, very low mile GX ... interested in your impressions vs. your past '03.

No pics yet, but it's Blizzard Pearl with gray interior.

Hard to compare to my '03, since it's been about 4 years since I owned that one. The one thing I can say for sure is that I like the color combo much better. (The '03 was Silver Pine w/ beige) Should be a lot easier to keep this interior clean. The nav is also better, and it's nice that it has bluetooth and a backup camera...both of which the '03 did not have.

It's certainly not as advanced as the MDX was with the electronics, but my wife never used 1/2 of what the Acura had anyway.

The condition is exactly what you'd expect for a 21,000 mile vehicle, even though it's over 6 years old. I've looked at plenty of low mileage vehicles that were still beat up....this was not one of them. The front passenger seat still had the "Genuine Lexus Leather" tag on the headrest, and the door sills all still had the protective plastic over the Lexus logos.

The dealer was over 2 hours from me, and I'm glad I put a deposit on it earlier in the week over the phone. When we got there on Saturday, three other people were checking it out at the same time we were. I'd bet it would have sold to someone else that day had we not taken it. That said, there were also 2 or 3 people checking out our MDX before I even got all my stuff out of it.

Default I get your decision.

I just purchased my 07 GX but I was very close to pulling the trigger on a Range Rover Sport. Sometime buying a vehicle is not always rational. The interiors of the newer LR/RR is first rate and like you said, you leased it so your protected for a period of time.

Hope it all works out for ya,

Good luck with the new GX, funny thing was I was seriously considering driving from Mass to NJ for the free corroded wheels, haha. I wanted the hyper silver ones and figured it was my chance to refinish them.

Thanks! I always liked the hyper silver wheels as well....now I have them. Let's hope these last longer than the others did before they start to bubble.
