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


Review

My GS has been in the shop 10+ times.
Sounds like a friggin alian spaceship
landing in the FR at 40-55, Lexus
says "it's normal" but they can't
reproduce on another car. Replaced the
rack, tires & other parts with no
results. Slight presure on the brakes
& the noise goes away but they won't
replace the caliper - too logical
maybe? First 8mo they said "absolutly,
there's a problem", now they claim
it's fixed & it's normal noise. Also,
the car wanders horribly on the
highway, that's why they replaced the
rack - no change. They took the front
end out of spec & did help the drift
but it's still miserable. A bit of
wind on the road pushes me around,
bummer huh?


Best Features

Auto recirculating air works well, pretty good seats, it's quiet, very reliable. *** NOT *** the service at Park Place Lexus in Plano TX?


Worst Features

1) EXORCISE THE ALIENS. 2) FIX MY STEERING. All in all - most things are designed pretty well. FORSALE - 2002 GS300 with 15k miles - exciting to drive at high speeds and comes complete with alian spacecraft sound effects.

Review

I bought my car in September of 2002,
and I love it, but it is almost
impossible to drive in the snow. There
is a traction control button, but it is
basically worthless when you drive over
10 mph. I will probably sell it before
next winter, but for those of you who
have the fotune not to deal with snow,
I highly recommend this car.


Worst Features

Better traction control in rain and snow

Review

I had just finished a bad experience
with Jaguar and was looking for a
sporty and fun to drive car that had
that European flair.Looked at BMW but
went back to Lexus only this time the
GS 300 sportdesign model.
I thought about the GS430 but figured
the speeding tickets were not worth it.
The GS300 is a great car,fast enough on
the highway with a great ride and
finish,if you can buy one.


Best Features

Looks with Sports Design,ride,handling and most important reliability


Worst Features

A little more horsepower for the inline 6 and 17" tires standard

Review

The GS300 is a pure delight to
drive,the car is fun to drive,excellent
ride with Sports design package.
The interior is well laid out and very
comfortable.
If there is one area of improvement it
would be to increase horsepower,that
could be done by dropping in a twin
turbo like the Toyota Supra or
increasing the size of the engine.

The car is very reliable with no
problems to date.


Best Features

The overall look of the car,the ride and performance all blended into a very reliable automotive machine


Worst Features

Increase horsepower,larger size tires from 16 to 17 and controls on steering wheel for Radio.I would also like to see a dash with more gauges like oil and battery rather than just warning lights.
