GS 400 Major Fun

Review

Bought a '98 GS400 used with 32K mi. Has been major fun, and as reliable as a rock. Awesome performance. Some owners wish for tighter suspension (see L-Tuned add-on components) or more performance (again, see L-Tuned chip, exhaust, etc). I don't feel the car needs these tweaks. Car now has 72K miles and has had not a single mechanical problem. Car is now seven model years old and is still spotless.

Could not buy a better used car for the $$$ if you are looking for a V8 and 300HP. Smooth as glass, whisper quiet, AMAZING build quality (especially after coming from a Volvo.) This car feels like it could go 300K miles without a hiccup!

Review

for the money, there is nothing else that comes close. this is a reliable, luxury, and perfomance vehicle all in one. all the bells and whistles will spoil you. i recently sold it for a cheaper car (bad year) and now realize how spoiled i am. the service was great too, but don't plan on fixing anything..if it goes wrong, they replace it. the navigation was great, but at the loss of the nakamichi sound system its a give and take situation. there really was very little to not like about this car. i'd buy another one in a minute.

Review

Had as LS400 and I do have a LX470 so I am onviously sold on the Lexus product. My neighbor bough a 740i recently and I was jealous of the 288 HP engine. Bought a used GS400 with 62K on it. Put in about 1.5K in routine maintenance including 60K service and it's "Katy bar the door!" Unreal fast and smooth handling. Keep the BM'r. This is the ride!

Coming out of a 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante and taking a step back into a 1998 Lexus GS400 was a hard step at first, but my reliability now is greater and I have a higher resale value.

Review

This is the first V8 I've ever owned after owning 5 cars in my life. I love driving fast and defensive. This car has lived up to my expection. This sound system is wonderful. I love the leather interior with the wood trim. The truck is extra large which I love. This car is very comfortable. Difficult to let go.

Review

Super smooth, quiet, scary fast. Build quality is outstanding and the feeling of luxury without tackiness is excellent. Feels much higher quality than the BMW 540i, especially in and around the dash and the quality of the leather. The leather in the BMW feels like naugahyde in comparison The stereo is excellent and makes the BMW sound like a cheap boom box. Handles extremely well, even when pushed hard, though there is some insulation from road feel. This car has been VERY reliable and the dealer has treated me like a king for service. All in all, I will be looking hard at a new GS when the model style changes.
