Review

I still love my Lexus, but seats are thin compared to American vehicles.
Disturbed by notice on airbag exploding and progecting pieces of metal, due to manufacturing and lack of quality control.

Review

Bought new in '02 for $40k. It's been a very good car, now at 230,000 miles. Everything works. Gets 23-24 in mixed drving and 25-26 on hwy still. burns 1 qt every 2k miles but i can live with that. hazy plastic headlights are a problem, requiring one of those resto kits. thats a small item and the rest of the car is v good. xlnt leather trim. quiet engine. i'll buy another gs and i hope the newer engine design is as reliable, quiet and fun as the I-6. dealer service is awfully $$$ and if you can find a competent and honest independent, go with that. better value than a 5 series or E300.


Best Features

Leather Quiet engine


Worst Features

Better headlights counter springing in the trunk

Review

Bought it new in '02 for $39,500 and i still like it a lot. at 200k miles, it still runs quietly and smoothly. I'll get another one soon. A very few complaints and they are too minor to mention. I'm in sales and it's perfect for that. Dealer service is too expensive but if you can find an honest independent, go with that.


Best Features

Great leather. Smooth inline 6.


Worst Features

Larger trunk would be nice.

Review

I have owned my 2002 GS 300 for 6 years. It now has 167,000 miles on it and it has been an awesome car. All I have done is had it's regular oil changes, changed a belt or two and have had absolutely no issues at all with this car. I prefer driving mine over the newer Lexus loaners I have driven. My car is solid, still drives smoothly, quietly & is quite dependable. This is by far the best car I have ever driven and would definitely buy another Lexus due to it's superior quality and performance.


Best Features

smooth drive, quiet ride, customized leather seat, Lexus Premium Stereo System and sunroof.


Worst Features

Better hinges for trunk lid that doesn't fall while you are unloading the trunk.
