Can never go wrong with Lexus


1998 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan


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!

Best Features

Great stereo; comfortable seats; styling! (inside and out); safety and reliability; re-sale value; very pleasant to drive. I would buy another one. It has convinced me Lexus is THE brand to buy.

Worst Features

Gas mileage should be better with this size vehicle/engine, and premium fuel requirement doesn't help. Bad weather handling has been better since the addition of new tires, but it is still dicey. Expect to pay big $$ if something needs repair. Good thing they're so reliable!
