I want my BMW 5 series back
By ParkPlaceBAD-TX on


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


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.
