The middle row seat behind the driver may not latch correctly due to interference from the Lexus Link System (LLS) storage case.

2003 Lexus GX470 Reviews

Decent car, but not a true lux vehicle. Plagued with problems during ownership. Still a Toyota. First and last Lexus/Toyota I'll buy.
This is a great SUV with lots of power.
