2007 Lexus GS 450h 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Went to the taste of lexus event and loved the car. I traded in my 2002 LS 430 (which I loved). I love the hybrid, not because I am saving gas money (currently getting 14 mpg, due to my style of driving). It is incredibly fast and can keep up with most porsche cars. The sport transmission is amazing, and the car is up to par with what I had in mind. Very sexy design, but if you want to spend less money buy the GS 350, it;s only 37 less horse power.


Best Features

Bluetooth speaker, navigations, DVD player, 14 speaker stereo, full programmability - a lot of toys keep you busy for hours.


Worst Features

Small trunk, bluetooth does not work well with blackberry needs to be reset every time

2007 Lexus GS 450h 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Have a 1998 GS 400. Have owned/leased at least 5 others since 1993. This one does not live up to the hype. Extremely annoying feeling of gas- electric-gas kickin/out etc. at speeds around 59 mph. Miniscule trunk. I am currently attempting to get out from under this "Edsel". PS: the mileage is really only a 4-5 mpg better than my GS 400.

2007 Lexus GS 450h 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

It is not a BMW 550i, but it comes quite close in terms of handling. Interior materials are a bit superior to those seen in a BMW, especially when it comes to sound. Given Lexus/Toyota high levels of reliability this vehicle was a better choice for me.


Best Features

Exterior looks - interior luxury and functionality - great sound system.


Worst Features

Driver should be able to switch off the vsc/vdim.

2007 Lexus GS 450h 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

The performance of this car is mind-boggling. If you floor the gas while driving at 70 to 80 mph, you WILL get pushed back into your seat and blow by everything else on the road. If you are over 6 feet tall, you should definitely sit in a GS before purchasing, especially if you tend to sit straight in your seat. I'm 6' 1" and my head touches the roof. The trunk is definitely tiny, but I personally do not place large suitcases or any other significant cargo into the trunk on a daily basis, so this is a non-issue. For trips to Costco or the airport, we just use the other car, an SUV. The navigation voice recognition takes some practice, but otherwise the nav system itself is powerful


Best Features

Unbelievable power and performance. Very quiet. Excellent Mark Levinson stereo.


Worst Features

Gas mileage is not as advertised, but still good considering the performance of the car. The roof needs to be taller for drivers over 6 feet tall!
