What did you do to solve this problem? I am facing the same thing. Lexus GS 430 2006 from USA using in the Middle East?
I have the same car, and pretty much the same experience. Out of frustration I stuck a sock between the dash and windshield on the right hand side, and 90% of my dash noise went away. I've been driving this way for 5K miles or so, and some of the squeaks have come back, but many have not. Whenever I bring it in for service I tell them to not touch ... Read More
I bought my 2006 GS 430 December 06 for $51,000 fully loaded. My experience has been horrible, the car was promised to e safe but the USA today and consumer reports both state that this GS model brings down the Lexus overall ranking as top safety car due to body integrity and other sub-standard features. I wanted to upgrade to one of the safer models and Lexus gave me the cold ... Read More
Hi cwa318. this car's lease program varies depending upon how long you lease it for and its mileage allowance. For now I will assume that you are interested in a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year. Let me know if you want something different. Lexus is no longer providing lease money factor support on 2006 models, but it does have $2,000 closeout dealer cash on the 2006 GS 430 ... Read More
Please see my post on poor low beam illumination in the "Lexus GS 300/GS 430 - 2006+" topic. I'm curious to hear whether others agree that this is a serious problem.
"The GS and M still get hammered by the 5 and E though." Infiniti car sales in the U.S. were down 12.4% through Sept, compared to first nine months of 2005. The only model with sales higher in 2006 is the M. However, third quarter (July+August+September) 2006 sales of the M ( 2,293+ 2120+1933=6346) were down 22% from third quarter 2005 ( 2,755+2623+2351=7729). Lexus passenger car sales in the U.S. were ... Read More
Reading through these messages I realized the 2006 GS 300/430 pricing is now a mute issue because it's been heavily impacted by the new 2007 GS 350. Why? You buy this luxury car for performance, quality and residual value. Well Lexus, in a complete brain cramp, released the new GS350, with 22% more HP, for the same price as the old GS300. Problem is it beats the GS 300 and actually ... Read More
Luxury Performance Sedans What is this discussion about? Lexus GS 430, Acura RL, BMW 5 Series, Lexus GS 300, Audi A6, Infiniti M35, Infiniti M45, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Sedan Our hosts have allowed a fairly wide latitude here on this forum -- and I think rightly so. What I was attempting to clarify without being "brusk" was a fairly commonly accepted classification of cars we discuss herein. The comments I made were ... Read More
Hi - a better place to ask that would be in the dedicated Lexus GS 300/GS 430 - 2006+ discussion. Check it out.
Hi random987. Lexus is currently providing a decent level of lease support on the 2006 GS 430. If you were to lease one through Lexus Financial Services right now for 48 months or less, its buy rate lease money factor should be .00178. this is equivalent to an interest rate of just under 4.3%. I'd be happy to estimate what your lease payment should be like on this car for you ... Read More
I have the 2006 GS300 but I know someone else who installed the OEM 18" 5 spoke 2006 GS430 wheels/tires on their 2006 GS300 AWD with no problems. All 2006 GS 430 and 300 18" style OEM wheel styles have the same 45 offset. Got my OEM 5 spokes from an out of state Lexus dealer as "take offs" for a very good price. I took my 2006 GS300 to my ...

On the topic of satellite radio antennas, Lexus will soon start routing the satellite radio connection through a shark fin antenna mounted on back of the car's roof, which the GS in Japan already has (this can be seen at www.lexus.jp). This will first be seen in April on the GS 450h. The 300 and 430 will then get the antenna in the fall of 2006 as 2007 models, although at ... Read More
I've been putting in super since day one, now at a bit over 5,000 miles I am trying regular for the first time with a fillup yesterday- after 40 miles, no noticeable difference. See the below. I use my car primarily to commute to the office, no racing or any type of high performance driving. ========== • How thirsty? GS 300 RWD is rated 22 miles per gallon in town, 30 ... Read More
Sorry to hear about the accident. How do you feel about the elctronics in the new 5? For the record, the new 5 hasnt proven itself particularly reliable just yet. I've driven a 545i, not impressed with iDrive, or the Active steering system. (And this is not just a BMW bash, I dont like the steering in the GS430 either). I'm not sure if the 530xi offers AS or not, but ... Read More
I've recently been shopping for a new car in the luxury performance sedan segment and thought I would share my thoughts here, as I've learned quite a bit reading the Edmunds forums myself. I've done quite a bit of research online during the shopping period and took several test drives before coming to a decision. I was planning to spend anywhere from $35k - $50k and definitely want navigation as a ... Read More
The "legendary" Florida1 is back! Since I've leased my 430 I'm not on this site as much---decided to jump on and see what all you've been talking about---Only to find out that my old posts are alive and kicking if not being challenged---seems there is a level of cynisism (sp?) in regards to my posted lease details: I reviewed my lease terms and here they are: 2006 GS 430 No Nav ...

I was at the local coffee shop today in a suburb outside of Boston. On the way to the shop, I walked by a gorgeous black, 2006 Lexus 2006 GS 430. I was really impressed as to how they have created a definitive style for this car, sharply featured lines, distinctive design ... no compromise everywhere, "camels are horses designed by a committee" here. The GS430 is unique, beautifully styled, and ... Read More

I just bought a 2006 GS430 with G-spider wheels and Advan A10-B tires. Question is does anybody know anything about these tires? I know Advan is a Yokohama top brand racing tire, but unable to find the A10-B tire called out on their website or any other for that matter. I know the dealer installed the G-spider wheels and mounted tires themselves. Are these tires OEM for the Lexus GS series ... Read More
Lexus should have brought both the GS 350 and GS 460 out now. All GS 300 competitors have more poweful engines like the M35 and E350 which just came out. Even the Avalon has a 280 hp 350 in it. When they finally bring the GS 350 the mags will say "this is the engine it should have had from the beginning." But I understand the marketing, Lexus can sell a ... Read More
You would think after owning 3 previous Lexus vehicles that I wouldn't be surprised by the legendary quality and workmanship. But I have to report that my GS430 is a really, really well-made car. One reason (but certainly not the only reason) I went with the 2006 430 instead of waiting on the 450 or 460 is that in my experience Lexus does a stellar job with quality and workmanship on ...

I believe the first car under the Lexus namebrand in Japan will be the 2006 Lexus GS300/430. The current GS is called the Toyota Aristo, which comes in many more variations over there. Such as the previous GS was available with the straight 6 with twin-turbo's and AWD. The current GS has been around too long, correct. It sold well in it's first 2-3 years. After that, due to styling that ... Read More
Does anyone know what the length, width and height are for the 2006 Lexus GS 430?
A comment to your statement: "Let's not forget the 2006 GS430. Supposedly the same 300bhp and 320lb-ft, when the 545i has 325bhp and the upcoming larger E-class V8 will have over 300bhp and 300lb-ft?" I don't know enough about the plans Lexus has for the new GS 300 but for the upscale GS (above 430), they will offer a hybrid version adding on to the GS model line of 300 and ... Read More
More comments with facts to back it up. I hope this clarifies things for you. 1. "The LF-S was NOT the concept for the 2006 Lexus GS" You are incorrect. The LF-S is most definitely the concept car for the 2006 GS. When they were designed has no bearing. The fact is the LF-S was introduced to the public about three months in advance of the GS as a teaser. Denny ... Read More
Some comments about your post: 1. It has never been confirmed by Lexus that the LF-X will become reality. That is pure speculation at this point. 2. The LF-S was the concept for the production 2006 GS, not the IS. Of course, since Lexus will have new styling cues some of what you see on the LF-S will most likely make it onto the new IS sedan. 3. Not all Lexus ... Read More
