Considering the GS 350? Stop right now & get it! Itís amazing! Most luxurious car in its segment. Ride is flawless & the creature comforts are top notch. I donít care what magfolk say, Iím not driving the autobahn & Iím not racing. Itís a luxury car thatís sporty & fun. Commuting is a dream. Steering is just fine & much nicer than TL I traded. Yes it does not drive like a German auto, but I donít care. Just finished a 400+ mile trip & never felt better coming out of a car. Comfortable! Did I mention quiet? Oh my gosh! At highway speeds you can have a normal conversation with music playing in the background. Plus reliability Germany canít touch. Kudos to Lexus on the GS 350.
Lexus listened to the reviews of the 2006 model and addressed the concerns in 07 - a quick 303 hp V6; good brake feel and response; the ability to turn off the stability control. I have not enjoyed driving this much since my 1994 BMW 540! I have owned the 2006 530i, and this Lexus is a much better driving experience than that car was. I would like just a bit more headroom (I am 6 feet tall), but that is my only complaint. I am thoroughly enjoying this car - highly recommended for a test drive.
This car is almost great. The exterior design is gorgeous and powerful while the inside is luxurious and super comfortable. However, I wouldn't have bought the car without the nav - it's just that good. I didn't, however, opt for the ML sound package because the standard system is pretty darn good. BMWs and Audis are probably more fun to drive hard because of their superior steering feedback, but the GS can hold its own - it handles surprising well for a big car. Dallas has few twisty roads or hills but plenty of hard, concrete highways, so the Lexus' suspension has the best combination of comfort and sport I could find. I wish the back seats folded flat (only has a ski pass-thru), though.
Wanting to buy the 07 LS 460, but ended buying the GS 350, but no regret this car is super refine, fast and powerful. Researched all competitors. This GS is better hands down if you're looking for power,luxury, comfort and refinement. Has everything that I need in a car from power to comfort and safety features.
I've owned my GS 350 AWD since November and love the car. Top notch quality inside and out plus the security of Lexus' exceptional reliability. Very smooth ride, plush interior with not a whisper of outside noise. Every aspect of the interior is thoughtfully planned and purposeful. Initial gas mileage averages around 16 mpg, but this should improve over time. One downside: XM satellite radio is available, but not Sirius, which is a real shame; I find Sirius to be far superor in terms of both programming and songs played. That said, the car is amazing and built to last. Once you drive it, you'll wonder how you lived without it.
