Matador Red....G Spiders....Run Flats
By GS Driver on
2006 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
99 GS 300 owner no more. Lexus nailed it with this one. Corners very well, no give or roll during high speed cornering. Run flats did not interest me, but I liked the look and drive of the car, sprung for the 5 year tire road hazard for $385. Car has 900 miles on it, already had a flat. Tire was not defective, so the $385 warranty already paid for itself ($381 to replace/mount the tire). Overall a great car, Lexus service and quality has always impressed me. Compared to my 99, the 06 mpg is impressive. seeing a 4mpg improvement.The G Spiders make this car.We get many WOWS when showing it off. also, RWD has spare tire std since run flats are an option (AWD has std run flats).
Nav is greatly improved over the 99 Nav system, Gas Mileage, looks, now run flats, performance--handles like a dream, Audio is outstanding with the ML system, keyless entry/start, bluetooth, ........
For a $50k plus car, you would think you could monitor tire pressure independently. Waiting for a more stylish XM antenna before installing. Head room is less than the 99, I am 6'2", and I have about 1 inch of clearence. Get tire warranty if offered for run flats.
