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


Review

I have owned many luxury cars in the past including the CTS, BMW 330i, and Lexus RX330; however, this one far surpasses any of those vehicles. First of all, look at it! It's the prettiest car on the road! Second, it's a good buy. LOVE this car! Third, it is so roomy inside the cabin. Fourth, the Nav is easy to use. Fifth, it's a Lexus


Favorite Features

Styling, handling, wood interior, leather seats that are so plush, large storage areas inside the cabin, pull out side pockets for phone book/map.


Suggested Improvements

Larger trunk is needed and rear folding seats..that's it

Review

Before buying the GS 300, I researched every other competitor, save the Mercedes. They all had their redeeming qualities, but the Lexus had the best combination of all of them - style, creature comforts, build quality/reputation, and pure driving pleasure. I kid you not - I LOVE this car. I previously had a 1999 Porsche 911 Cabriolet, and thought I loved that - I'm sorry Porsche, but our love affair is over. The Lexus emotes luxury - from the welcoming lighting, to the softness and comfortability of the seats.


Favorite Features

It's comfortable. Makes you want to drive. A lot. Rain Sensing wipers, ventilated seats, and the Mark Levinson sound system are stand outs. Navigation, tiptronic, smart key, and white LED welcoming lights all complete the excellent package.


Suggested Improvements

Mod kits are available, but I shouldn't have to use them to: Use the onscreen bluetooth while driving. Input destinations while driving. Have a DVD playing while driving. iPod connection/integration. Glovebox light. Automatic (like everything else on it)trunk light. Rev matching while in tiptronic

Review

I initially bought this car over the Infiniti M35 because of a higher resale value down the road. However, since owning it for 6 months I now appreciate it more than I ever thought I would. Besides, until Infiniti, or anyone else puts out a color to beat Matador Red, I'll just keep putting miles on this one!


Favorite Features

Believe it or not, the color! then there's that great ride.......


Suggested Improvements

If I could dial out on the phone while driving, I'd be happier. I know it's a safety thing, but some of us are REALLY good at multi tasking!

Review

I am so disappointed in this overpriced car. I received a replacement trans at 877 miles and continue to have trans trouble. Navigation cannot be programed while the car is in motion. You cannot dial out (cell phone) via bluetooth while the car is in motion. The bluetooth address book will not receive and store the information from some cell phones. When the car is in motion, voice commands are rarely recognized due to background road noise. I had to pay $300 for the XM module in order to receive XM and the display of track & artist info is cut off. I am truly dissapointed in the car.


Favorite Features

Keyless ignition and entry. Vented seats.


Suggested Improvements

see my review, I've pointed out several problems with the car's features.

Review

It was a tough choice between the M35 and Lexus GS300. The convincing issues favoring Lexus were: smoother ride, quieter ride and interior finish. We would have liked a bit more wood on the dash-a logical place is the trim strip on upper edge of the glove box. A dream to drive, our first tank of gas resulted in overall average 28.5 mpg


Favorite Features

Sculpted look. Exterior and interior finish. 28.5 mpg average on first tank of gas - wow!


Suggested Improvements

More wood on dash - logical place on upper trim strip on glove box.
