Review

Purchased in 2005 with ;58,009 miles on it. Have only had ONE repair, under $200, just last year. Kept up annual maintenance, oil changes, etc. and have had normal replacement of battery and tires. Car is now almost 17 years old and the styling has held. I'm just now needing some exhaust work but I've had a long run with no work needed. Would buy this car again with less milage (128,500 now).

Review

I've owned my GS 300 almost 7 years. It has been an extremely reliable car, and one of the most dependable cars I've ever owned in my whole life. Mine now has 112,600 miles on it. The interior quality is excellent; my car still looks relatively new and rather modern on the inside. Its a little bit cramped in the cabin--especially if you're tall. Its almost like driving a roller coaster seat--very snug and tight. This car is really ideal for people under 5'8". I have one of the less common models that features a GPS system, which was rare in 2001. STILL WORKS, although getting an update can be tricky for such an old system. Performance is not super fast, but this car hugs the road. Body roll is nonexistent in this thing. Exterior appearance still turns heads. This body still is 20 years old, but its still striking. The engine is a gladiator. Premium fuel is required so its not a gas saver at all, and that's one of the car's few cons. Consistent, predictable, and absolutely reliable. If you get one that's been taken care of, it'll be hard for you to ever consider selling it.

Review

Well, you can spend all your life time driving other cars and your life goes on , or you can drive a Lexus and every day you will be waiting for the moment you get in your Lexus to drive home after work- wow what a feeling being in a Lexus after a long day at work on a heavy traffic day- this is a meditation in a car, and you will be wondering why other drivers around you are yelling and stressed- because they don't drive a Lexus- look at any Lexus drivers around you and you will see them just enjoying being united with their Lexus. Its been stated multiple times that driving a Lexus is therapeutic, makes you wonder is it still a car? Try a 27 years old LS400 with 300K miles and you wont believe its a car- BMW and Mercedes must be worried, seriously- if you reading that review, get yourself a Lexus, PERIOD.

Review

Bought this car used. Had an accident that did NOT show up in Car Fax Report. None-the-less, I've had it since under 25,000 miles and it's run nearly flawless. Air conditioning went, wheel bearings on only one wheel (accident) but we figured that out and repaired it. Taking it to a quarter million.....
