2006 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
I have had 4 Lexus models, LS 400, SC 430, GS 470 and most recently GS 300. Have to say this is the last Lexus I will ever drive. Have had an annoying clunk in the front end when backing out of a parking spot. Although everyone I have had in the car asks what the clunking sound is, mysteriously, it never occurs at the dealership. They have been unable to fix this ongoing problem. Also, tires had to be replaced at 24,000 kms approximately 15,000. Tires are rated as all season. Do not attempt to drive this car in snow conditions without snow tires. 10 months left on lease, cannot wait till end of term.
Comfortable Lexus ride, elegant interior, good acceleration.
Outside mirror tends to need to be continuously re-adjusted. Drop down for access to fuel cap release etc is not so nice if you leave it down by accident. Centre console control panel is not user friendly. Lexus could have done much better.
