Best car i've ever owned and its a '96. I also have a Lincoln mkz 2006 completely loaded and i prefer the Lexus. The interior is extremelely comfortable with 12 way power seats. Its has the legendary 2JGE STRAIGHT 6, NOT V6! So thats a complete heads up on reliabilty. The leather trim holds your body and the quality is there even at 14yrs old. As for performance its probably as fast as a 6 cylinder will go up untill around 2003 and thats without pushing the sport button. Steering the car is the softest ive ever felt but holds corners like a sport coupe with its double wishbone suspension. The car was ahead of its time using many LS components. Built by 90% Robots in Tahara Japan. 9/10
Love my GS300, handles well, excellent comfort features like power seats, sunroof, all controls well-designed. Driven over 140,000 miles and no significant repairs beyond standard belts/hoses/maintenance.

This is a great car. I drive 30,000
per year, and have had zero repairs or
issues (except replacing trunk lid
lifters) - just normal wear & tear.
Sporty performer with good looks,
strong acceleration even with 100k+
miles, comfortable ride, beautiful
interior, great value. I plan to keep
it until close to 200k miles with
possible repaint/touchup for minor
road & parking lot dings.
