One Great Car
By McKeen on
2006 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
Didn't like the interior/dash of the M35 or 530. Liked the handling, exterior and interior appearance of the A6, but from the first drive of the GS300 my wife and I loved the performance, ride and quietness. We had a 2004 S80 T6 before, great acceleration and low end torque but too on/off. GS300 is a very comfortable car to drive, smooth seamless shifting and braking. Had a slight tracking problem but dealership and Lexus rep. jumped on the problem quickly and resolved it with minimal inconvenience to me. Fuel economy is unbelievable for a 245hp vehicle. Highway gives 38 mpg (Imperial)@75mph, mixed driving is 30 mpg (Imperial).
Interior/exterior styling. Quietness, smooth ride and acceleration. Great fuel economy. Fit/finish quality. Great dealership. Foolproof stability control. Tight turning radius.
Rather than only 2 large option packages in Canada there should be more breakdown into smaller option packages. A bit larger truck.
