Review of the 2004 Lexus GS 300

  • A capable and comfortable car, but when one considers that the IS 300 is sportier, and the ES 330 is nearly as luxurious, and both cars cost less, the GS 300 doesn't make much sense.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Silky engine, available Mark Levinson audio system, blend of luxury and sport.

  • Cons

    Average acceleration, doesn't communicate with the driver enough given the sporting mission of the car.

  • What's New for 2004

    Nothing changes on the GS 300 this year.

Vehicle: 2004 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

My GS 300 spoiled me, but I didn't realize it until I started looking at other cars online. I used to do it for fun, just to fantasize about what I might enjoy. I was lucky enough to find my 04 model with the Nav/Lev package, which has more than proven itself. Now I don't even have fun looking at other cars. I just can't imagine that it would get any better than the reliability, extreme level of comfort, and total owner satisfaction that I have experienced over the past year and a half. My first lexus was a 96 ES 300, which was replaced with this one. As long as I am able, I will never purchase another vehicle.

Another lexus joy

i have owned the rx300, the new es300, the is300 sportcross. i loved the reliability of all of them. i did not care for the es styling. i loved the is 300 sport cross for city living. but the gs 300 is the best.. combo of luxury, space, safety, and lexus quality. ac is perfect. and it drives like a dream

Just a beautifully designed vehicle. Sales experience was excellent, not pushy. Service is unbelievable. For a bigger car handles very well. Features are well thought out and very intuitive Lots of space for passengers and great sound system. Highly recommend this car
