Excellent vehicle, superb ride and
comfort. Build quality is better than
any other vehicle I have owned.
Dealership experience is actually
worthy of the vehicle.
Only complaint, and it's minor, is the
amount of power available. Could use
25 more HP and 25+ft/lbs of tourque
I found that the car tends to get really
boring really quickly. The steering
feel is isolated from the road, and
acceleration is VERY poor at low speeds.
After about 30mph though, the car has
some decent pickup.
There is alot of lightweight material in
the dash, the moonroof cover is loose
and rattles at high speeds. There is
alot more wind noise on the highway than
i would have expected.
For a blah 6 cylander engine, fuel
economy on this car is pretty
disappointing. Especially for a Toyota
Lastly, with the standard issue tires,
this car is utterly useless in the rain.
I'm going to replace them soon.
Crisp, clean dash. Smooth cushy
improve torque in the lower gears.
better road feel. i mean i can buy the
ES or the LS if i want to get that boat
like luxury feeling. AWD option.
This is my second (and last) GS 300.
The first one was incredible. It was
2.5 yr old when we sold it and bought
the new one. Our new one, since day
one, has had squeaks, creaks and groans
from the dash that the dealership has
been unable to fix. Thought I would
trade it in for a new one (it is only 5
mo old). Was told the dealership would
give me $33k. About $8k depreciation in
5 months. Finish out detail problems
like what I am experiencing are amazing
for a 'luxury' car maker like Lexus.
Learned my lesson. Next time- BMW here
