2006 Lexus GS 300 Sedan 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

First, I would like to say that this new gs sedan is a vast improvement over the old one. The interior looks a lot better than the previous generation gs. The mark levinson sound system is a great improvement over the 2001-2005 versions of the radio. It is a very classy looking car and gets better gas mileage than the previous gs


Favorite Features

The mark levinson stereo compares almost to aftermarket sound, the leather interior, wood garin, nav system, power train, and 17 inch rims


Suggested Improvements

I believe that the 1998-2005 body style was better looking. Not to downplay the new one the 98-05 wasnt so boxy looking. another improvement is that lexus should not integrate the nav, radio, and climate controls into one unit. if the radio breaks, I cannot add an aftermarket deck.

2006 Lexus GS 300 Sedan 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Lexus makes the best luxury sedan hands down. It is both reliable and performance driven... a real head turner. This has to be the most technologically sophisticated car ever built. Lexus left nothing to chance and anticipated every need the driver or passenger could ever want. The handling and performance easily surpases anything BMW or Mercedes currently offers and the service Lexus provides is light years ahead of any car manufacturer out there today. American car companies need to wake up and realize how an automobile should be built or they won't be around in the very near future.

Review

I had this car for a couple of months and I love it. I actually test drove several vehicles, Infiniti, Acura, and Audi to compare from several perspectives and chose the Lexus GS 300 AWD. I had the dealership change the tires to 18" Michelin Pilot® Sport A/S tires in place of the Goodyear run flat tires and what a difference in ride and handling. This car is fully loaded and the Mark Levinson 14 speaker Audio system is great. I am completely satisfied with this car. This car is an eye-catcher and it delivers on demand.


Favorite Features

Body design, touch-screen navigation, bluetooth for cell phone, Audio system, interior design, leather seats.


Suggested Improvements

None.

2006 Lexus GS 300 Sedan 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Over the past 2 months, I looked at all of the competition and boy am I glad I decided on the Lexus GS 300 AWD. This car is excellent with a luxurious ride and sporty feel. Mine is loaded with every option Navigation (easy to use after a couple of times), ML Sound System, Sirius, adaptive headlights (these work great on dark curvy roads!), backup camera, heated/ventilated seats. The value in this car is incredibleconsidering all these features i any of the other cars would be $10-15K more and those cars would not be as reliable (Lexus is the best here!). This car is impressive, roomy, and really fun to drive.


Favorite Features

Fuel Economy (getting 25+ MPG average per tank), Navigation, Adaptive Headlights, Mark Levinson Surround Sound


Suggested Improvements

Bluetooth works with Verizon service but phonebook can not be loaded

Review

The GS 300 is an awesome automobile. I got the black and it looks sharp. It handle well at high speeds and you cannot even tell when you drive 75+ MPH. I would like an lightup display on windshield to monitor speed, but I'll do without. Have the NAV system and will never buy a car without it now. I drive a lot to different places and its like havain and intactive map with you at all time guiding you through the biggest cities turn by turn. She has a nice voice too.. :-) I'm sold on Lexus and bought the correct car. Looked at BMW 5 series, Audi A6 and Mecedes C something. The GS 300/450 beat them all hand down for luxury and ride. The A6 was close though.


Favorite Features

NAV system, very smooth acceleration


Suggested Improvements

Speed display on show on windshield like the Corvette. One button park. Lowers shades, closes windows and bring mirrors in by one touch. Heated and AC rear seats.
