A love hate relationship

Vehicle

1999 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan

Review

Bought it new and have had a love hate relationship since. Overall quality is very good, but performance stinks. Sporadic shifting pattern, especially after slowing and making 90 degree turn, then accelerating again will drive you nuts. Also, shifting pattern in stop and go urban traffic will drive you even nuttier. computer and ESC don't have a clue how to respond. Recall/upgrade of ESC was done in 1999, but really didn't fix the problem. Dealer acknowledges this as an engineering problem typical to the car - big, unforgivable mistake for a car in this price range

Favorite Features

Overall quality of fit and finish

Suggested Improvements

Make it responsive to the driver's needs, make it handle like a sports sedan should handle, and generally make it fun to drive.
