Extremely happy Lexus Owner

Review

The only reason I am parting with my car is because I need to seat more than 5 people. I have nothing but positive things to say about the GS430. I would buy another one in a heartbeat.

GS 430 A Driving Machine

Review

I have owned and driven many cars. This GS 430 is by far the best. It is fast, luxurious and a great looker. Who could ask for more. This car accelerates very quickly, smoothly and unbelievably quietly for a V8. Handling can be better but for those looking for a tighter handling car consider the L-Tuned package designed by Lexus for these cars. For those who have had tire issues I was once one of you. I found a solution. The new breed of high performance tires are coming out. I switched to the Kumho ASX 235/45W/17 and what a difference. Grippy and quite with an expected long tread life. Made a great car even better.

from the day I owned this car it has drifted and taken every bump moving the car to the next lane. I have had the car in alomst every month and I am told it's the same thing. Lo profile tires. I have 36k miles on the car and have had to replace the tires 4 times. 2 weeks ago the battery died on me. I was told by a tire store that Lexus has been tweeking the alignment in, so it drives straight. I asked lexus about this and they of course have denied this. The car is gorgeous but I never know.

An Excellent Blend

Review

I have to agree with the majority of the reviews of my car. Yes, it has outstanding acceleration, good handling, the best ML audio system, etc. But it does not have the overall connection with the road that would make the car a blast to drive. This is my second GS; the first was a '98 GS400. Both were bought new. The '01 is a definite improvement over the '98 becuase of the ML audio, additional luxury and safety improvements. Would I buy again? Definitely. The combination of the performance, luxury and reliability is top notch. No, it does not handle like a BMW540, but beats it in all other ways.

Simply Fantastic!!

Without exaggerating the GS430 is literally a dream on wheels. It is hands down the best car I've ever owned and I have owned quite a few. It’s roomy and so reliable it’s scary. The performance is as awe inspiring as it is effortless. The car is smoother and quieter than offerings from Audi, Cadillac, Mercedes or BMW, not to mention more reliable. The quality is simply remarkable. The more I drive it, the more I’m impressed. It’s not perfect but it’s a lot closer to perfection than I ever thought possible. The amazing thing is the LS430 is even better.

I've had the pleasure to own a mercedes, porsche and lexus, and found the GS430 to be a fantastic car. It never goes to the shop, it's incredibly fast and smooth, and it's a blast to drive. Of course the Porsche is the best car for reallllly fast driving, but day-to-day driving, the Lexus is the winner.

Great Performance without a hint of effort. I was a BMW 5 series person for the last 5 years and I'm very happy to have made the switch to this car.
