  • Awesome new sedan screams down the road faster than a scalded cat.


  • High price. Lack of a manual transmission.

14 yrs later.... this car still rocks!
I picked up this car 8/2011 with 103K miles. I got for $9k out the door! clean 1 owner carfax with great service record! It was a steal!! It's in virtual mint condition. It has 130k miles now and no issues what so ever on many long trips, day to day city driving. Its comfortable, built like a tank, but ride is so quiet & smooth! It's not for racing! Not even the V8 is for that, but this car's power is enough to do what you needed to. It has classic & timeless good looks and I get compliments on it all the time. This car is durable reliable car that I can recommend to anyone. This model stopped in 2005 as in 06 a new style came out, but I like this one better!
Love the Lexus
I've wanted a '98 GS since they first hit the road. I was holding out for a GS 400 to get the V8 and the better 0- 60 time, but decided that the GS300 had plenty of power for my needs. I've had the car a year now and am very pleased. Knowing what I know now, I would have still made the purchase. The car is very reliable and the service dealer is fantastic. I wish the car got a few more miles per gallon around town than it does (about 17- 18). Also, it's recommended that the GS use premium gas, which makes the $/mile higher. But hey, if I wanted low $/mile I would have gotten a Honda Civic or Toyota Matrix. Anyway, two thumbs up for the GS300.
Can never go wrong with Lexus
Purchased this vehicle in '03 with 34K miles. It has been a great car. I've only had to replace the tires and a couple of turn signal bulbs. It looks outstanding, and the features in a '98 vehicle will compete with most '05 vehicles. Everyone loves our car, and are very surprised to find out how old it is. The styling is wonderful. The tranny is a little sticky going from 1st to 2nd, but then it is smooth sailing. You better keep an eye on your speed, because it is easy to cruise with without realizing how fast you are going. This vehicle does not get the gas mileage it should however, and it is not wonderful in the snow. Overall, we have been very happy with it. Would love an '06!
