I've owned my GS 350 AWD since November and love the car. Top notch quality inside and out plus the security of Lexus' exceptional reliability. Very smooth ride, plush interior with not a whisper of outside noise. Every aspect of the interior is thoughtfully planned and purposeful. Initial gas mileage averages around 16 mpg, but this should improve over time. One downside: XM satellite radio is available, but not Sirius, which is a real shame; I find Sirius to be far superor in terms of both programming and songs played. That said, the car is amazing and built to last. Once you drive it, you'll wonder how you lived without it.
The handsomely designed exterior, the plush interior, the easy to access controls, the smooth, comfortable ride, the safety of AWD and (of course) the Mark Levinson stereo system make this a near perfect automobile.
1. The Mark Levinson speakers located by the feet of the driver and front passenger should have been located on the doors for better surround sound. 2. The car should have been 2 inches longer making for a more spacious trunk. 3. Make Sirius satellite radio available... PLEASE!
