1996 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan


Best car i've ever owned and its a '96. I also have a Lincoln mkz 2006 completely loaded and i prefer the Lexus. The interior is extremelely comfortable with 12 way power seats. Its has the legendary 2JGE STRAIGHT 6, NOT V6! So thats a complete heads up on reliabilty. The leather trim holds your body and the quality is there even at 14yrs old. As for performance its probably as fast as a 6 cylinder will go up untill around 2003 and thats without pushing the sport button. Steering the car is the softest ive ever felt but holds corners like a sport coupe with its double wishbone suspension. The car was ahead of its time using many LS components. Built by 90% Robots in Tahara Japan. 9/10

Best Features

Automatic telescopic steering column that retracts when you take the key from the egnition. Sound system is excellent with a stock sub and built in tweeters in the door. 12 CD Changer! Never seen that before. Smooth coasting drive with a split personality of sport sedan.

Worst Features

Bigger wheels. Alittle more perfomance as its 0-60 is around 7seconds. Alot slower than the 98-2005 which had the famous V8 GS400 which was rated fastest sedan in the world for 4 years. Do not be afraid to own one of these cars. Mine has 173k and it feels new.
