2006 Lexus GS 300 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


After owning 7 North American automobiles (4 of them brand new), I can't believe I am about to complain about my Lexus - just nit-picky stuff really.

Reliability wise, the car has been flawless.
I have 138,000km on it and the only issue I have had was a hole in each side of the stainless steel exhaust pipe right before the secondary cat converters.
This was a $1400 repair, so I got a local muffler shop to weld on two 1 foot sections of pipe and now it's fine.
Except that they fried an o2 sensor on me while welding.

I have the creaks and rattles in the dash like everyone else.
That is annoying.
Also, the tranny seems lost when feathering the throttle below 20km/h.

Best Features

Everything! Love the retro tape deck. It's like finding an old 8 track in a classic car.

Worst Features

Will not play MP3's, no aux input, tape deck?? Really?!?, cabin interior really dark at night, for some reason the spot lights do not come on, nor have I found a setting.
