I just said fair well to my dear gs300. I didnt have it that long,maybe a little over one year. The car gave me issues but the previous owner didnt take good care of it. I bought it for 1400 and had to put 3000 of work into it,ever penny was worth it. I loved driving it! I loved the design of the interior and exterior. Even though there were some issues under the hood my dear gs never left me stranded. If you have one of these,take good care of it, I will miss this car! Excellent vehicle!!! kudos toyota/lexus
For you idiots who read this, I just want to say that this car has potential with that 2JZ engine. Do a JDM swap if ya'll are crying about power because there is a way to twin turbo it. Plus, if you want to NIP out the car, there are plenty of modifications for it, even making it 6 speed manual tranny if you like. The engine has been tested to push out with hp in the 900 range. Its too easy, you do the MATH!
The potential from this JZS147 is the 2JZ engine which is the same power plant as the Toyota Mark IV Supra. NUFF SAID!
It would be nice if people would quit crying about power. God, do an engine SWAP! Still the same 2JZ engine, just different block.
I bought this car with 130 miles now it has 175 and it's given me problems, water pump replaced, radiator, fix the timing, brakes, tires, 2 window motors, major transmission problem, check engine light is on. Since I had this car it's been parked a couple of times for 2 to 5 months at a time. It's hard to fix and expensive too. By the way we do change the oil often and try to keep up with it. This car cost us $6.200 but with all the repairs we done to it cost us well over $10.000
This has been such a tremendous vehicle for us. The reliability has been tremendous. It goes and goes without a complaint. I purchased the vehicle used with 40K miles on it and a have driven it another 50K miles over the last 6 years. Very comfortable vehicle.
Styling seems timeless. Nakamichi stereo/subwoofer is the best one I have ever owned!!! Smooth acceleration.
