1999 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan


After driving this car for a week straight, I have to say that I believe it is one of best cars on the used car market. Its got great style, not too bold, but not too understated either. The engine is a work of art; only making 225 hp, and yet it feels like so much more. The transmission shifts perfectly and is barely noticable. The handling is not the best I've driven, but is still great. The steering is amazing in both feel and weight. However, none of this compares to the interior. It is simple yet very functional, and everything is in great reach from the drivers seat. The seats are a little firm, but offer great lateral support. Finally, this being a Lexus, it will last a long time.

Best Features

Great sound system and very legible gauges. That 3.0 straight 6 is one of the best motors out there; it can be quiet when not hammering it, but give it gas and it will sing to the 6000+ rpm redline. Some of the best brakes on a car, considering its now 15 years old; great feel and stopping power.

Worst Features

Not many complaints against this car. One is the inablilty to turn the traction control off. You can let it go into power mode for a little more slip, but it can never be turned completely off.
