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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Looks, performance, sound, navigation system, awesome A/C, decent fuel economy, interior comfort.

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

Review

Traded in my C-Class and am completely thrilled. GS-300 has plenty of power, don't listen to the nay sayers!! Smooth, quiet, touch of understeer which I happen to like. Test drove the A-6, new E-class, 5 series, and TL; this one beat them all out, and got an amazing deal with payments less than my 2002 C-Class!! Buy this car!


Favorite Features

Interior is amazing; none of that spaceship brushed aluminum garbage. Amazingly quiet and refined.


Suggested Improvements

Milage computer and controls for audio on the steering wheel are the only things that come to mind.

Review

I purchased my 2003 Lexus in Dec. of 2002. I had done my research on it for about 9 months before purchasing. I compared it to the S-type Jaguar,300 Mercedes and also against the Lexus ES300. I found it to be more appealing in style and performance. The sound system (Mark Levinson) is surperb. There can not be a better navigation system. So easy to operate. It has great pick up with no hesitation. I would buy another one in a minute. Great car!!!!


Favorite Features

Favorite features: Navigation system, Sound system (Mark Levinson). Also I like the seat adjustment for myself and also the individual heating and colling system


Suggested Improvements

The glove compartment could be a bit larger. Also the trunk space is tight.The second outlet for a phone adapter is located inside the arm rest. Very inconvenient. But none of this takes away from the car.

Review

Great car, reliable, smooth, and very sleek compared to rival German and Domestic Cars.


Favorite Features

VVT-i makes shifting between gears unnoticeable unlike BMW, Mercedes, and Jaguar. VVT-i kicks in at about 2,500rpm making it seem like stock turbo.


Suggested Improvements

for a more agressive street racing performance, the GS needs to be lowered about half to an inch with L-tuned springs and strut bars for turns around 40mph.

Review

my experience with this vechile has been very fun. Style Power And sport all names this performance sedan. I also have to say that the trunk has made bigger improvments in space leather is more rich. And the vsc is wonderful in the winter time. Its pricing is very good to because its not as high as bmws 5 series and not as high as mercedes benz E Class.


Favorite Features

Navigation system, VSC, Veneilated disc brakes, Heated Seats and ECT.


Suggested Improvements

all wheel drive bigger trunkm space be3tter fuel economy. Lets say 19 in the city and 28 on the highway.More horse power for road rage and faster o- 60. Lets say 6.8 seconds.
