Review of the 2005 Lexus GS 300

  • A capable and comfortable car, but considering that the IS 300 is sportier and the ES 330 nearly as luxurious for less, the GS 300 doesn't make much sense.

  • Safety
  • Pros

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

  • Cons

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

  • What's New for 2005

    The GS 300 continues into 2005 with no changes.

Vehicle: 2005 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

When I compare both my GS300 and BMW 525 the GS is equal to or better in all categories except handling...but it's very close. The GS has an ageless design, beautiful fit and finish and unmatched reliability. The soft, black leather interior with a splash of dark burl wood is absolutely stunning...you won't be disapointed with this luxury sports car. The Lexus key is the one I reach for when I leave the house!!

Vehicle: 2005 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Bought this 05 about two months ago. Saved from the sticker price about $12k. Nice car, ride with standard stock tires is a bit noisy. Suggest a smoother riding factory tire. Interior needs in dash 6 CD, currently in glove box. Needs sunglass holder over head. Very comfortable interior ride over 30 mph. Solid feel and lots of room inside and also in trunk. Gas mileage averages about 18 mpg in town and 22 mpg highway. Nice sound system, leather seats very comfortable, lumbar support very good. Dash instrument panel easy to read. Solid all around vehicle.

I upgraded from the ES300 to the GS300. The handling and responiveness is what made me purchase the GS vs. the LS, as well as the GS having more room than the ES and it has a more meaty look than a luxuy sedan. It is awesome on trips, you feel a few bumps but over all it is nice quiet and smooth. There have not been any problems so far with the car. The Lexus brand has made an impression on my and my family so as long as they make good quality luxury cars that look good, they will have me for a customer.
