Review of the 2002 Lexus GS 430

  • A sedan to consider if you can't decide which you like more, luxury or sport.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful engine, plenty of safety technology on-board, available Mark Levinson audio system, blend of both luxury and sport.

  • Cons

    Navigation system bundled with controls that work better with knobs and buttons; doesn't communicate with the driver enough, given the sporting mission of the car.

  • What's New for 2002

    After a number of upgrades last year, the GS 430 enters 2002 unchanged.

Best new car i have

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Lexus GS 430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)

112,000 miles and only 1 repair (at 108,000 miles hood release cable broke). Wish Lexus would use Bose radio (Levinson sounds great but radio reception is only average).

Best car i've ever owned!!!!

Vehicle: 2002 Lexus GS 430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)

This car brings a perpetual smile to my face every time I drive it. Took me several months to find a late-model GS 430 that was well-maintained - can't afford a new one. I'd much rather buy a 4-year-old Lexus than a new car any day. Used to have an LS 400, and while it was a great car too, it was almost too refined to be fun to drive. The GS 430 is all about driving excitement if you ask me. The GS 430 has a great balance between sportiness and comfort. It filters out harsh road noise and vibration, while letting you know that it has 300+HP under the hood. Works well for my family with two carseats in the back. The Z-rated tires are pricey and wear out quickly so budget for tires!




Love my lexus

Car is quiet and a pleasure to drive. I've had other Lexus in the past and they have always been great cars. The car is so easy to drive it feels like it is doing all of the work for me. I have recently had other cars and they become boring and aren't fun to drive. Thanks Lexus for making this car so amazing.

And why would you lower the price of the GS 430? It's already thousands less than its main rivals, the BMW 540i and MB E430....

Just picked up my Matador red/cashmere GS 430 three weeks ago in S Florida. It is without a doubt the most technologically advanced vehicle I have ever driven. I did not select the precollision system...
