2013 Lexus GS 350 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I had a new GS-350 as a company car.
It's very...uh, nice, I guess.
The handling is mushy and imprecise.
The drivetrain is about as responsive as a defensive tackle.
It has all the creature comforts you would expect from a Lexus.
However, the stereo is lousy - whoever Mark Levinson is, he's stealing money from Lexus by getting paid to put his name on the premium sound system.
All in all, it's a car that will make you feel older than you are.
I didn't realize how little fun it is to drive until I quit my job and bought an Acura TL - now THAT's a driver's car.
Maybe the F version of this thing has some some kick to it, but the standard car is as much fun to drive as one of my grandfather's Cadillac's from the 60's.
A minority opinion contrary to those of
Edmunds and a vast majority of posters here and on the Acura page. I don't know anyone who would prefer an Acura TL to a Lexus GS. Different strokes, I guess. That's what's good about having freedom of choice.
I agree [non-permissible content removed] an Older Tl??? I just bought the gs 350F after planning for 6 months to get an E class and test driving one I found the F model not only better looking and driving but more of a value. Mine is Black with the cabernet interior! Seriously if you are considering the German makes add this to your test drive, I did it as an after thought and did not leave the lot!
