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!
I bought this car because i always
wanted a nice whip to drive. But this
car was better than i expected and it
is one of the best if no the best car i
have ever owned !! The reliability is a
plus. It feels and looks good on the
road. I will definatly buy another i
dont think i will purchase another car
other than the GS. I also own a RX so i
guess im a lexus man 4 life !!!
I LOVE THE CAR AND IT`S FEATURES BUT THE CAR NEEDS MORE POWER. (TWIN TURBO) HAS THE SMOOTH SHIFTING TRANS BEST IN THE MARKET. THE RIDE IS WONDERFUL BUT ROLLS ON TURNS. MY NEXT CAR WILL BE THE GS ONCE AGIAN .
A friend of mine had gave me the keys
to his Lexus GS 300 for the weekend
while he was out of town on business.
On Saturday I decided to take it to
the car wash and have it cleaned.
Needless to say once I put the car
in "Drive" I almost snapped my neck
(WOW - What Power). After that day I
decided I must have one. Today I
still love my GS 300 and you know I
had to put on my very own custom tires
& rims (18 inch chrome). Now my friend
is asking me to take my car to the car
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-
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.
