2006 Lexus GS 430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This car is so fun to drive. I got a CPO last year with only 47000 miles. It is so amazing, how it rides. I actually giggled the first time I tried to pass someone on the freeway because I wasn't expecting it to speed up quite so merrily! Fun surprise! It feels so luxurious that I felt embarrassed to be driving it at first. Nobody deserves to drive in such luxury. It's just a blessing. :) The only complaints are that the dashboard squeaking will not cease. Lexus paid to fix it and it has been looked at about four times already but it cannot be fixed, even with that special fix they have. Also, a/c and park assist sensors have gone out and were fixed but the a/c took three times.


Favorite Features

Everything! except the dashboard squeak. This car is so fun. Even my old mother commented, this car is so smooth.


Suggested Improvements

No squeaking or rattling. Please do a good job the first time and take pride in your work. Put in high quality parts that will not break.

Review

I purchased mine a Lexus Certified Used car, and all I can is "wow!" This car has just about everything a driver would need under the Sun. Once in gear, this car is like race horse ready to sprint out of the gate. The handling is excellent and very agile around corners and curves. One has to watch, however, the speedometer, as I found myself going from 40 to 80 in a few seconds.


Favorite Features

- Raw power! - Comfort and Amenities - Mark Levinson sound system - Low seat profile


Suggested Improvements

- Center glove box is somewhat cumbersome to access. - What's with the cassette player anyway? - No MP3, even with the ML stereo upgrade. - XM Satellite not standard feature! Boo!

Review

I love my car - 3 years later there is not another car on the road that I want to drive. The only down side we have seen is that the brakes wear unreasonably quick - 20k miles or there about. That does not change my mind about the car - she handles oh so well!


Favorite Features

Backup camera and parking assist. I park in a high rise garage and the backup camera and parking assist are great features for backing into spaces.


Suggested Improvements

Absolutely none.

Review

Bought this car from my son who put over 45k miles in less than 14 months. Read editor's model review which a lot better than consumer's ratings. Had a minor problem with tire warning coming on and not a very smooth ride. The dealer techs kept replacing the sensor in the tires and the warning would stay off for a couple thousand miles and I would have to go back in again. Well, to make a long story short the front struts were bad!! Although out of warranty Lexus replaced them and now it handles like a 60k car again. I own a small auto repair shop and you will not go wrong buying this car for around $30k :]


Favorite Features

The power, comforts, back up camera, monitor/nav system. Full package.


Suggested Improvements

Interior lights

Rearview camera lets you see down the road if your angle parked and cant see because of the car parked next to you.
