Review

I owned a 2000 GS300 for 15 years and when I finally sold it she had 201,676 miles on it. This car was absolutely amazing! In the 15 years that I owned it I only had two major problems. One problem back in 2011 with the Oxygen Sensors which was repaired and then 4 years later I had problem with ball joints. Thatís when I decided to sell and it was difficult letting go of this amazing vehicle. Even after all of these years it still drove smooth on the road. I would highly recommend buying a lexus as they are reliable and will never fail you.

Review

i bought this car a year ago with 150k on it. i did a royal purple synthetic oil change along with royal purple trans fluid. This CAR IS AMAZING. The 3.0 v6 will get up pretty quick if you have it switched to the power mode. The car is extremely comfortable with plenty of space to put stuff. For as big and roomy as the car is you wouldn't know while driving, it feels like a fun little sports car, and the shift in the transmission is almost not even noticeable. i now have almost 200k and it looks and feels like it has under 100kI put someHID headlights& led tail lights and put some nice wheels and tires on it and it turns heads. This is the best car that i have ever owned.


Best Features

strong, reliable, powerful motor that gives you the feel of a strong sports car, while still providing absolute comfort and convenience of driving a luxury vehicle.


Worst Features

gas mileage isn't as good as some of the vehicles in this same class. that's about the only bad thing i can think of on this car.

Review

I have never bought a 10 year old car before. But it was roomy for my 6'3" frame and 275 lbs! I found a 1 owner Car Fax certified model with 94,000 miles. Beside routine maintenance, I had work down on memory front seat and upper and lower control arms in the front. I have not regretted buying it.


Best Features

General performance... good acceleration and cornering. And a little snob value as it is a Lexus! Very tight body integrity. Never heard a squeak! Very smooth drive train. I enjoy driving it every day!


Worst Features

Maybe better FRWY mpg of 25! I have read some GS owners getting closer to 29/30 mpg.

Review

I bought this car used with 85k last month, great for a 10 year old car. It is truly a wonderful car. I immediately changed oil, front rotors, front pads, rear pads and rear rotors(all were original). I have put about 3k miles in about month. This car rides like its brand new. This is definitely a keeper. If you can a find one with good miles, you cant go wrong. I checked all the review sights prior to buying. No one believes it's 10 years old when I tell them. It looks and rides great.


Best Features

Styling, gas mileage, smooth ride, quick acceleration.
