2006 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
One of the reasons why I love this car is the styling. It is bold, while still maintaining its GS heritage. First thing you notice when you get inside is the abundance of luxurious materials. Leather is smooth and steering wheel is a dream to hold. Navigation with backup camera is absolutely necessary as visibility is impossible out the back and parking sensors add even more convenience. High performance tires wear out under 25k miles and will be pricey to replace. At 6 feet tall, it fits just right, but any taller and I'd be against the roof. Trunk is spacious, but opening is small and trunk springs make it a struggle to close. Need a real trunk closer/opener.
Navigation. Back-up camera: must have because it is impossible to see out back window. Park sensors: not easy to estimate where the hood ends. Wood interior is smooth and gorgeous. Exterior styling is bold and captures attention. Interior materials are rich and luxurious. Smoother ride.
Add the distance lines to back-up camera display that curve to show where vehicle is heading. Nav screen not as sharp as 2007 models. Bluetooth hangs up conversation when you shut the engine off. Enable exterior headlight when approaching car. Headroom a little low. No rear side airbags.
