My second Lexus. I had the first, a 1991 SC 300, for ten years. I bought the GS 300 as a certified used car with one year and 25,000 miles. I now have 124,000 miles on it and it still looks and drives like a brand new car. Service has not been that expensive considering the car and treatment has been perfect. Highway mileage consistently in mid 20s, not bad. I replaced the terrible OEM tires with Yokohama Avids and have been happy with the handling ever since, although the car will never stir the emotions on a visceral level. Bottom line: an ultra- high quality luxury car with competent, but not exciting handling.
Vehicle stability control works like magic (on black ice, it saved my life). Fast and accurate DVD navigation system, great stereo.
A bit more power (although it would probably adversely effect gas mileage) and more steering feedback would be nice. Otherwise, a wonderful ownership experience.
