I just purchased my 2014 GS 350 F sport and I’ve been loving it. It’s a great quality car with great luxury and comfort. I bought the car used without 45,500 miles and it’s been amazing so far. As long as you keep the 5,000 mile maintenance intervals then this car will last years. I love the way it looks and the technology aspect. Listed below are a few things I don’t particularly like but can live with: front cooled seats don’t work as food as they should I can barely feel any air. The car could use a little more torque as it feels really heavy to me when accelerating from zero. Finally when I connect the USB cable, you are unable to play music from the Bluetooth on your phone. You have to switch to the USB option. Overall I love this car and have been really enjoying it.
after checking out audis and bmws, I settled on the lexus. for one thing, I hated the interior room of the german cars...they are just too low for me. second, they carry a very big price premium, which doesn't really seem warranted. so, I ended up coming back to my 'go to' brand - Lexus. this car is good looking - albeit pretty large, handles well, and is quite well appointed. the major problems, like others with the Lexus brand include a lousy transmission with poor downshifting, rather soft handling, and lack of control on hard acceleration. this car is very easy and comfortable to drive. the system controls, which are operated by a mouse, are distracting, but can be mastered after a long learning curve. driving also requires a bit of a curve. the car does not like its economy or sports settings...best performance is at normal. it also doesn't like regular octane gas...you have to pay for at least mid grade to get any sort of decent performance and mileage. this car is a real bargain compared to the german competitors....its typically a third less expensive used, which is the ideal way to buy one...overall, a very dependable and fun car to drive, if you are into something on the mid luxury level
