Let me first say that I am a career GM salesman! I would have never in a million years bought a Lexus, but we traded it in and I bought it. I LOVE the car! The seats and the interior are what sold me on the car. Thank God it was the V8 model... it's powerful, sleek, and butter smooth. The Nav and Mark Levinson audio system make trips a blast. The true test is that I bought mine AFTER someone else put 75,000 miles of business use on the car and it's still tight as a drum and runs like a dream. As I have a habit of running through a vehicle about every 6 to 9 months. This time though, I think I'll keep my Lexus and park way in the back at work!

This is my 2nd GS.I first bought a 1999 GS 400. I was going to buy a 2002 Accord. Long story short the Lexus blew the Honda away. I loved the car so much I got a GS 430. The 2003 is a lot smoother than the 99. I have always been a fan of Lexus's, and their reliability has always been outstanding. This is a fast and fun car. I put Michelin pilot sport tires on and the car has excellent handling. I strongly recommend this car. I put 60K miles in less than a year and I drive hard. I have had no issues. Just change the oil and fluids.

I've been looking for a lexus for a long time and when i came upon this one I said to myself this is the one for me.The way it looked caught my eyes. and When i took it for a test drive i didn't want to go home without it. I would recommend this car to anyone who wants luxury and performance in one package.

Love this car in the dry warm weather.
Awesome performance, reliabilty, nav,
sound system. Just don't get caught in
the snow with it. Car came with Z
Rated 17" Tires that are pretty much
useless in the snow. Also, tires are
pretty loud on the dry pavement.

Awesome car to drive and faster than
most sports cars out there. The person,
"Must get another car for winter by
jhave001" who rated this car 1.9 has no
clue what he's talking about. He rates
the performance 1.0 and reliability 1.0.
I don't think this person has ever
drove the GS430 let alone be able to
afford it. He's one of those that
drives the Ford Pinto, adds 22" Rims and
adds a Boeing 747 Spoiler and thinks
it's his Mercedes.
