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.
Style, sporty front end and luxurious rear end. Love straight six engine, smooth and quiet with just a hum when accelerating. Beautiful paint job.
More headroom and backseat space thou it's rarely used. Wish someone could simply solve (lurching) from stop to start.
