Yes. The brake pads were replaced at 50,000km (31,000miles), and people here are stating a lot better longevity than mine; rattling front passenger seats; and squeaky door panels (they're OK now...

The brakes have been squeaking on mine for months! The Stealer fixed it for a short while, but it's annoying when the brakes squeak only occasionally.

I probably don't need such a hardcore SUV in the future (in fact, I'm planning on trading my current GX), so I would get a crossover, or a wagon with added ride height like a Volvo XC70.

I'm definitely keeping my 2010 GX; I tend to drive my cars till their wheels come off, just like what Warren Buffett does!

The brakes are more than powerful for the GX; I nearly got T-boned by a delivery truck a few weeks ago, and the GX stopped quicker than my old ES300!

My GX has squeaky brakes as well; I asked the Stealer to fix them, but the problem came back after a few months.

How to permanently turn off the auto dimming mirrors?

I've tried pressing and holding the "auto" button for 20 seconds, but that only turns off the compass, then back on.

Totally agree. There was very little snow last winter here, and an X5 was sliding around like a slippery eel. The worst thing was, it almost hit me!

I would probably consider a Mercedes G-Class. It's about the same size, even better off-road capability, and would still look great 25 years later (that's a bonus)! However, the ride might bother...

For folks who are going to use the SUV in deep snow (over 2ft), the GX is a better choice because it's a real SUV. My friend has an MDX, and he got stuck pretty badly in a rare snowstorm. If fuel...

I have WeatherTech mats and cargo liner as well, and they are of very high quality. Compared to the Lexus mats, I think the WeatherTech are thicker, and thus should last longer.

I don't think it's a 2013 refresh, but just an optional "sport" body kit. Am I the only person here who doesn't like the new spindle grill? I think it totally ruins the cool factor of a real SUV!

Another question from a technophobic: Does the BT pairing, for both the phone and the music streaming, work at the same time (e.g. while I'm streaming music via BT, and the phone rings)?
