Review

great car, really reliable. Especially for those that have long commutes.


Suggested Improvements

more durable interior leather. The later models have done so, but the 2001 did not.

Review

best car ever owned...beautiful, still looks brand new, people still comment on it everyday, no mech problems in 2.5years...However, it is NOT a german car. After owning three Audi's before, my next car definitely will be a 5 series BMW, I need more firmness and better handling...Too sum it up, great car, but MUSH!!!!


Favorite Features

Comfort/reliability/design

new dash, more wood, new cd player radio controls on steering wheel.

Review

I have a Mystic Sea Opalescent 2001 GS 300 with Navigation/Levinson package, chrome wheels, spoiler, and tint. Very sharp car. The Levinson stereo is top shelf, and I love the navigation system. It's very user friendly, and extremely accurate. Car is very reliable and runs well. Nice, cushy ride, and ample power. I would recommend this car to anyone, unless they want high performance, or more of an exhilerating ride.


Favorite Features

Levinson stereo, Navigation system, and seat memory.


Suggested Improvements

Sportier suspension and engine.

Review

After 3 years and 50K,this was the first vehicle (after 10 others) that I have never had one major problem/complaint After owning Audis (3), all had major and multiple problems, 2 Mitsu's both had problems, My new 03 Acccccura TL-S, 3 problems already. But this thing is built bullet-proof. owever, I really miss feeling the road when I drive, No this is not a euro ride, it is true Japanese MUSH. But not the finish of a Merc/BMW or even Audi. The outside metal-tin like a corolla. So If you really want a great comfy reliable mushy car get this. I will say for the last 3 years all I want is to feel the road again....


Favorite Features

radio seats dash looks smooth trany plenty of power never felt like i needed the gs430 cup holder


Suggested Improvements

firmer ride on gs300, make the sport package standard, more wood inside and better gas mileage
