This is my second GS 300 and Lexus has taken the best of the older generations and infused the latest technology into one great package. It offers much more equipment than comparably equipped BMW 5 series and the MB E class. Combined with Lexus reliability, the GS comes out superior in every way. The GS is the class leader because it is assembled in the best robotic assembly plant in the world (Tahara Japan, the same line as used for the LS 430). In this plant Lexus has achieved the highest level of automation in the build cycle, and the lowest defect rate as compared to any other auto manufacturer. BMW and Mercedes do not even come close.
Exterior: aerodynamic w/lowest Cd in its class; Interior w/roomy, comfortable bolstered seats; sequential LED lighting on door panels & storage compartments; M/L DVD player, nav,bluetooth, voice command for map and climate control;power trunk closer;run-flats. Engine: powerful, smooth, very quiet!
While the new V6 is awesome, consider having the new 3.5 liter from the IS350 as an option!
