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.
A very good overall car,fun to drive.
It is certainly not a sports car. It
has a plush and very confortable
ride.Great on long trips. The seats
adjust very nicely to you and the
lumbar support is good.
I bought a Lexus GS 300 Sport Design.
What a wonderful car! I needed
something larger and more civilized
than the Corvette I previously drove,
but also wanted a car that was tight
and handled well. Although I wouldn't
say the car was quick, the power is
perfectly acceptable and top speed
(140mph) demonstrates the car can
move. Absolutely great on the
highway. You'll feel great starting
this car everyday. Features are
excellent for the money, dealer
experience was truly painless and like
none I had previously experienced. I
was considering a BMW but tired of the
attitudes of sales staff. Lexus
quality is also obvious.
Smooth and quiet, excellent fit and
finish, outstanding stereo (standard),
nice road feel, great AC.
The styling is a bit unusual but grows
on you. Not sure I will use the push-
button manual shift feature....might
prefer this feature using the gearshift
in manual mode instead.
Absolutely an amazing car, everything
I've always looked for. Great stereo,
Nav System, zenon lights, cd changer in
dash, heated seats, memory package,
graet interior (second to none much
better than mbz,bmw)-- why get anything
upgraded? Great service from dealership
always with a smile.
great interior, comfortable, well built
with great craftmanship.
better alignment- the front tires wore
out excessively in the first 10k-too
Even though this model has been around
since 98 I still get nice comments
quite often. The ride is fine for me,
I'm not throwing it around corners so
the luxury is my priority. Switched to
michelin pilots after 500 miles,
goodyear tires were inferior. Only
changes I would suggest are quite
minor; 4-spoke wheel with radio
controls and improved trunk hinges to
avoid crushing luggage. Pretty minor
items. Dealer service is just what you
expect and more, I'd be hard pressed to
ever consider another make of car.
Quality of the seats,I can drive for
hours with little or no fatigue even
with chronic back problems.
four spoke wheel,(I like to hold it
from bottom center when on long drives.
Radio controls on wheel, I really don,t
use the shift buttons. Trunk pass
through would be nice at times.
