The Lexus GS 300 AWD is a high quality car that is as enjoyable to drive as it is to look at. Compared with todays complicated iDrive systems in competing cars, the Lexus's touch screen is incredibly easy to use and wonderful to look at. The push button start is convenient and fit and finish are outstanding. The ride is quiet and there is just enough road feel to make it enjoyable. There is plenty of power for every day driving and even a power mode for those who want to push the car harder. Visiblity is great, seats are comfortible, even the rain sensing wipers work well. The navigation screen is slightly over complicated and takes a little getting used to but is packed with features.
Touch Screen, Bluetooth, Push button start, wood steering wheel feel, interior and exterior styling, AWD for sure. Radio display with buttons that display the names of the songs. Nav that doesn't turn off radio during operation. Peace and quiet make a relaxed driving experience.
Allow programming of NAV and access to phone dial pad when moving. It's more hazardious to reach for your phone to dial a number or to pull over on a highway to program your Nav. At the very minimum, allow the front passenger to program it. Put the trunk button outside the drop down panel.
