Did they give any info as to what's new for 2003? Or did you just order a 2003 regardless of what changes are coming? I ask because I hear (of course, from rumours) that there will be no more Premium (i.e. Base) and if so, then the poll would not apply for a 2003.kexicao said:Does $2600 touring package worth it? I ordered a 2003 basic+nav. I just want to see what the people who have ordered and lived with the touring package for a while think about it.
It seems like the GX470 is an upscale Sequoia and if you compare the spec of the 'X to the Sequoia - you're in an entirely different class (midsize v fullsize SUV). If 40k for the'X is a turnoff, the RX300 is the next comparable SUV in the Lexus line.kexicao said:If 2003 mdx gets rid of basic model and pushes the price to $40k level, I might as well to get Lexus GX470 for 5k more.
Exactly! Touring retains it's value, but navigation makes the ride even better for the 'present' owner.wmquan said:Interestingly enough, so far the Touring seems to be retaining its value pretty well.
Meanwhile, the Touring Package retains surprisingly good value. Usually higher trim levels don't retain their value quite as well, though sometimes that is offset somewhat by higher desirability.
