2002 Lexus GS 300 Sedan 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This has been a very good car for me, a salesman traveling around Ohio, Ky and Indiana. At 191,000 miles, it runs exactly as it did when I bought it new. I have one complaint-it uses a qt of oil abt every 1,400 miles in the last year, using full synthetic. I still get compliments on the millennium silver color and the light grey leather interior. The handling and acceleration are crisp, for the size of the car. A good value!


Best Features

Silky smooth inline 6.


Worst Features

None, really.

Review

Ever since I bought my GS I've had nothing but fun. I have 20 inch wheels on it and it's dropped on tanabe spring. I would tell anyone get this car it's worth every penny. On top of everything Lexus service is the best.


Best Features

Luxury inside, comfy ride, highway speed, inline-6.


Worst Features

More horsepower, radio steering control.

Review

I just got a used 2002 Lexus GS300 for a Christmas present (as my first car!). It is really an amazing car. It's 7 or 8 years old with around 96K miles on it, but it still drives like a new car. I'm always getting compliments about it. The standard 6 CD changer is amazing, and the audio has an amazing bass system. The styling is absolutely amazing (but I'm not crazy about the tail lights). This car hasn't broken down in the 7 years it's been on the road. Gas mileage stinks, but it's a big SAFE car (6 airbags). I'd rather have a heavy safe car than a light car with good gas mileage any day. Take the weight and safety.


Best Features

The L6 engine, the 6CD audio system, the sunroof, the steering wheel paddle shifter, the power tilt wheel, automatic climate control.


Worst Features

Wood trim on the steering wheel and shift knob. Tail lights look too much like a Chevy Impala's. The round lights look great in the front... but not in the back.

Review

I bought my car used this week and it was in excellent condition. Not too many miles for a used car. It is fully loaded, great sound system, wonderful AC, smooth ride, and so far no problems. I also got it at the blue book value (not overpriced).


Best Features

Everything!


Worst Features

None that I can find at this time. I am fully aware of "buyer beware", so I am hoping everything is okay.

Review

It takes me 6 months to get bored of a
new car. I have owned my GS (Sports
Design) for over 2 years now and I am
still enjoying it. That should say a
lot about this car. No car is perfect.
GS300 is very slow from 0 to 60 (over 8
seconds)by today's standards. I have
the regular (not Mark Levinson) stereo
which is so so, it has a small trunk
size and the gas mileage is really bad.
On the plus side, it has a very
comfortable plush ride and build
quality is great. Dealership (Stevens
Creek Lexus) and after sales service is
superb. For performance, BMW 530i might
be a better choice. For reliability and
comfort, GS is ahead.


Best Features

Soft ride, build quality, comfortable seats. Its a Lexus!


Worst Features

Power! This car needs more power and better road grip. Improve 0 to 60 time to under 7 seconds. There are minivans with faster 0 to 60 time.
