2006 Lexus GS 430 Review

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

Review

Really enjoy the car except for the minor problems. Car has great performance, could only imagine it being perfect with the new LS 460's engine. Needs a bigger fuel tank, better seat heaters, and the Mark Levinson stereo needs more bass... nothing an aftermarket JL Audio sub can't cure. Car seems to have a few rattles in the dash that dealer has yet to narrow down and the brakes began to squeal. I was told that these are performance brakes and its normal. Lexus's solution is to put on less performance pads and lose out on the great brakes, I don't think so. I also would like to shut off the way to sensitive traction control, which I believe you can on the 2007.

Best car I have owned, features are incredible.. fun to drive is kind of a understatement it get your senses on edge everytime eventhough I've had it for a short period of time I'm sure I will never get bored with it. I can go on and on.. my advice to any prospective buyer is do not short change yourself with other imitators this car is by itself the head of the pack.

I will never own a Mercedes or BMW... the GS 430 is the car everyone that want to experience luxury with power should own. I still have the first generation lexus GS 300 which is a wonderful automobile. But the GS 430 is the top of the line of the lexus fleet when you incorporate HP with luxury do not and I mean do not think getting the GS 300 will give you the same expeirence. It is worth the money if you know what I mean. Gotta love it!!

Great Car but not a BMW...

Traded in my BMW 328CI because of miles and needed a bigger car. Pound per pound this car is the best value, true keyless entry, great nav, all the creature favorites that you need. The only thing I don't like about it is that it is not that fun to drive. The sport mode is to stiff and artifical, the increased power mode is still not that strong. The acceleration at high spead is not there. The trunk is small and the wheel wells get in the way, you can't put two large suitcases in the back.

Best yet

Review

This is my 3rd Lexus. They just seem to get better. What a wonderful automobile, the best I have ever driven. I drive a lot of highway type driving and I get up to and including 30mpg more often than not. I have a GS 430 and the only concern is sometimes I get noise from the wheels on certain type of road surfaces. But since this car is a performance vehicle that is not a real problem.

Disappointment

Review

Lexus tried to design a sports sedan but went overboard with this one. The ride is too harsh for a sedan that every bump on the road can be felt and the road noise is not tolerable for a lexury brand. I also own two pure sports cars. When I drive a sedan, I do not want to feel like driving a wannabe sports car. The adjustable suspension does not work at all. The soft and hard setting feel the same. The interior rattles and squeaks either due to high-power stereo or improper design of the interior panels. My previous 2000 GS 400 was a better-built car even though it did not have as much gadgets as this one but I could enjoy a quiet and comfortable ride when I choose to.

Looks great, fast and fun, but rides a bit rough for a Lexus.

Review

I was toying with the idea of a Merc, BMW or even a Jag untill I took a ride in my friends older 430. I then realized that I have been a total nut overlooking the Lexus for the Merc (I had a S500). This car beats everything else high and dry, no car is worth comparing to this beauty. After buying it the same day! i have taken the "emperor" all the way to yellowstone and back and it was pure pleasure, like a bottle of 1960's wine. When you are cruising on the freeway make sure you look at your speed, your touch 100 without even a slight shake or whirr of the engine. Frankly if I were the CEO of Mercedes or BMW, I would not be able to sleep well at night, this 430 has beaten every car by miles

Review

DRIVING AND HANDLING: The acceleration, handling and smooth shifting are very helpful for stable control over winding roads and in fast traffic. I drove over the Santa Cruz mountains yesterday and had a blast. The handling was superb and the car was able to accelerate effortlessly passing traffic. The brakes are a bit "grabby" and the accelerator is a bit stiff. Maybe they soften with use. The stiffer suspension button is also useful. INTERIOR: Road noise is low and comfortable. The steering wheel rim diameter has been increased for a sportier feel. The cool air seat pump, bluetooth and keyless entry are nice additions. GPS is a must for big cities. Triptronic shifting is fun.

This has to be the best sport sedan with a real rear seat.
