Review of the 2002 Lexus GS 300

  • Think twice before buying. The IS 300 is sportier, and the ES 300 is nearly as luxurious for considerably less money.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Silky engine, plenty of safety technology on-board, available Mark Levinson audio system, blend of luxury and sport.

  • Cons

    Overdone styling; no manual transmission available; doesn't communicate with the driver enough, given the sporting mission of the car.

  • What's New for 2002

    After a number of upgrades last year, the GS 300 enters 2002 unchanged.

Long term review '02 gs

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Bought new in '02 for $40k. It's been a very good car, now at 230,000 miles. Everything works. Gets 23-24 in mixed drving and 25-26 on hwy still. burns 1 qt every 2k miles but i can live with that. hazy plastic headlights are a problem, requiring one of those resto kits. thats a small item and the rest of the car is v good. xlnt leather trim. quiet engine. i'll buy another gs and i hope the newer engine design is as reliable, quiet and fun as the I-6. dealer service is awfully $$$ and if you can find a competent and honest independent, go with that. better value than a 5 series or E300.

Vehicle: 2002 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Bought it new in '02 for $39,500 and i still like it a lot. at 200k miles, it still runs quietly and smoothly. I'll get another one soon. A very few complaints and they are too minor to mention. I'm in sales and it's perfect for that. Dealer service is too expensive but if you can find an honest independent, go with that.

I have owned my 2002 GS 300 for 6 years. It now has 167,000 miles on it and it has been an awesome car. All I have done is had it's regular oil changes, changed a belt or two and have had absolutely no issues at all with this car. I prefer driving mine over the newer Lexus loaners I have driven. My car is solid, still drives smoothly, quietly & is quite dependable. This is by far the best car I have ever driven and would definitely buy another Lexus due to it's superior quality and performance.

I am looking into buying my next car and my budget is around $10,000. I like both cars, the 2002-2003 Acura TL and the 2001 Lexus GS 300. I am wondering which car is sportier, handles better, and is o...
