Being a mechanic and car enthusiast, I've driven hundreds if not thousands of cars. The only vehicle on the road that's overall better than 350 is 450h. 350 has plenty of power, it's comfortable, roomy, interior materials are very high quality and are well-assembled. Navi, cam, BT are superb. Ride quality is smooth, no cabin noise.. I could talk about GS's styling and performance all day, but it won't convince most potential buyers to lean toward purchasing this beautiful piece of machinery. Even under warranty you have to change oil, filters and brakes. Call Lexus dealer and you'll be pleasantly surprised that GS parts cost about same as Corolla. And I don't recommend buying a warranty
I replaced my BMW 7 for this car because it basically a Toyota with an L. I have had it for little over a year. Never had any issues with it. Right now with about 35,000 on it, it has never been in the shop. It does not compare to a BMW or BENZ, I have owned both. I got sick of the HIGH repair costs on the Beamer that drove me to this car. It is a very well made car with tons of cool tech stuff that I'm too busy to learn about. CONs: If you are used to BMW or BENZ this car has a lot more road noise. I ended up just living with it because it's super reliable and actually we traded my wife's M-roadster for a Lexus 400 and love that car too.
Nice NAV and gadgets. VERY NICE LOOK.
Road Noise is too much for this type/class of car.
Just purchased and love. I am over 6 feet and able to make the transition from a larger car. Mark Levinson FANTASTIC. Gas mileage after 2 refills over 19 mpg with aggressive driving. I actually hope to keep for a long time. Purchased with Michelin tires and they are great..
This is the first new car that I have owned that I did not have to take back to the dealership for a repair before the first oil change. It is extremely comfortable, and good looking. The only problem i have experienced with it, is that the front rims get very dirty between car washes.
The GPS, satellite radio, and the exterior look.
Improve the front brakes so the rims don't get so dirty.
This car is a great buy for those who want a nice luxury sedan with nice reliability and comforts. The car hasn't had any type of problems yet and has been great. Comfort and luxury are its main attributes. It rides softly and smoothly. Engine is strong and chassis is well behaved, but do not expect mind bending athleticism. It is a great option to the Germans, and probably the most civilized of the Japanese.
Interior layout, parking assist, rearview camera and Mark Levinson sound system.
Stiffer suspension when activating the sport setting with the adaptable suspension.
