I bought an 350 ES FWD as my first Lexus as I had two Mercedes and so many Subaru's I lost count .
After driving the ES for a few months I decided to trade it in as I missed the AWD the Subaru's have
The Lexus GS350 AWD filled the bill. It came with every possible option except the rear sun shade.
The extra's do add up pretty fast but it was well worth it
Everything is good including parking assist
Make the GPS a lot easier as 211 page booklet is a bit much.
Unless one is a computer nerd some of the electronics can make someone insane
Lexus should give a 8 hour class
on electronics 101
as there is so much this car has and including
one amazing sound system
I purchased 07 GS350 in 09, now at 60K. Like the car a lot. Good performance, sleek looking, much quieter and smoother ride with Michelins, dumped the run flats. Added IPOD hookup which works great. Had dashboard rattles, brought back to two different dealers before rattles were entirely eliminated.
Pros; I find the car to be very comfortable, solid performance and handling.
Cons; Little more wind noise than I expect, especially around sun roof. Cassette deck vs IPOD hookup?. NAV system can not be used while car in motion.
Performance, style, reliability.
Replace run flats, more noise insulation around sun roof.
