Review of the 1999 Lexus GS 300

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    For value, luxury and performance, the GS 300 is probably the best sport sedan available today.

  • Cons

    For pure fun, BMW's 540i is still king of the sport sedans.

  • What's New for 1999

    The GS 300 was totally redesigned last year with improvements in performance and a completely new look. As a result, the 1999 model goes unchanged except for the addition of daytime running lights and standard floor mats.

Best car i've ever owned

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan

Bought this car with 178k, now at 200k and still looks and drives like a new car, people constantly think it's 2006 or so, paint and leather quality has really impressed me, nothing has signs of wear and very little thing works, I've seen people who own these with well over 300k so I am not worried, I am sold on Lexus due to the reliability of this car

Excellent used car

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan

I bought it at 94,000 in 2009 and I've driven it for a year now for both local driving and couple of road trips. It is an excellent car for all purpose and is incredibly comfortable. Brakes are something to get used to and the gas mileage isn't great. I've taken it to Lexus dealer for maintenance every 5,000 miles (which is quite costly) and I haven't had to do anything else. I'm definitely hooked on Lexus now.




Life time lexus

I also purchased a 1999 GS300 at an Orlando car auction in 1999. the car had 1600 miles and was 3 months old. Eleven years later it has 68,760 on odometer and I still love how it handles. However the earlier post was correct (The car lurches when you first press on the gas. It is hard to start off smoothly) Have learned to press pedal easy when starting off.




Best car i have ever

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan

I bought it with 2K miles. The feature that hooked me and I still use to this day is the button to roll down all the windows and open the sun roof from outside the car (comes in handy on those very HOT days). The car now has over 120K miles and all I have had to replace was a timing belt (100K) and a starter. A few years back I started looking for a replacement but could not find anything I liked so my wife let me "PIMP" the ride. I added a really cool kit to it and had the outside repainted the same Zinnabar Pearl. Added Halo headlights and a chrome grill. No one can believe it is a 99'. It is a head turner, but I know I will have to sell it one day.




Personal genuine ratings of lexus

Vehicle: 1999 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan

In general terms I'm very happy with this car and it's a great long distance tourer. By far the greatest quality of this vehicle has to be the beautifully smooth, quick well made, and durable engine. In short I have driven many thousands of happy motoring miles in it and it has proved to be the most reliable car I've owned up to date.




Just bought a 10 year

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan

I found a very good deal on my GS300. 10 years old and only 64,000. Hard to believe it is 10 years old. Everything is still tight with no creaks or rattles. Fun to drive and very reliable so far.
