I bought my car in September of 2002,
and I love it, but it is almost
impossible to drive in the snow. There
is a traction control button, but it is
basically worthless when you drive over
10 mph. I will probably sell it before
next winter, but for those of you who
have the fotune not to deal with snow,
I highly recommend this car.
I had just finished a bad experience
with Jaguar and was looking for a
sporty and fun to drive car that had
that European flair.Looked at BMW but
went back to Lexus only this time the
GS 300 sportdesign model.
I thought about the GS430 but figured
the speeding tickets were not worth it.
The GS300 is a great car,fast enough on
the highway with a great ride and
finish,if you can buy one.
Looks with Sports Design,ride,handling
and most important reliability
A little more horsepower for the inline
6 and 17" tires standard
The GS300 is a pure delight to
drive,the car is fun to drive,excellent
ride with Sports design package.
The interior is well laid out and very
If there is one area of improvement it
would be to increase horsepower,that
could be done by dropping in a twin
turbo like the Toyota Supra or
increasing the size of the engine.
The car is very reliable with no
problems to date.
The overall look of the car,the ride
and performance all blended into a very
reliable automotive machine
Increase horsepower,larger size tires
from 16 to 17 and controls on steering
wheel for Radio.I would also like to
see a dash with more gauges like oil
and battery rather than just warning
I bought this car via the Internet
from Lexus of Westminster, CA for
their cost. The transaction was fast,
businesslike and pain-free. After
looking at the competition (Acura,
Infiniti, BMW et al) I decided on the
Lexus for its combination of style,
reliability, performance, comfort and
price. Although there's a few things
I'd change, I'm quite satisfied with
this car and expect to be even more so
as time goes by. There have been no
problems whatever during the first
This car handles and rides like
butter. Steering is effortless, it's
more comfortable than I ever imagined,
and I love its looks. The basic sound
system is more than enough for all but
audiophiles. All dashboard controls
are logically placed and easy to
From a dead stop, the accelerator
hesitates a bit sometimes. More
headroom would be nice. The
transmission shift buttons on the
steering wheel are not practical.
Rear side vision is impeded because of
the roof pillars. Finally, it could
use a bit more power.
