2016 Lexus GS 350 Sedan 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Ideally designed as a conservative, red-state, luxury performance car, the AWD GS 350 looks modest in every direction one approaches it, that is until you put it into drive. Then, any notion of modesty slips off, the sports-mode turns up the heat in red, and you leave the ordinary playlist of luxury sports cars behind. It eats Jaguars and Maseratis like so much breakfast cereals. It impales BMWs and Mercedes Benz of similar class like Count Vlad of of Transylvania. And it does so with minimalist effort, as though dropping off the kids uniforms at the cleaners.Nothing about this car speaks of its great style and handling better than owning one and driving and driving and driving. The only drawback is that it is a beast in sheep's clothing. Never knew that gas could be consumed so quickly, by such a fuel efficient engine. But, test drive it. You'll see what I mean.
You will not get this level of reliability from European brands!!!! I leased this car as certified pre-owned when it had 35k miles. Now I already have 45k on it, and not a single issue on this car. Friends of mine have this car with +100k miles on it, and not issues whatsoever! I had an Audi A4 for 7 years, and drove 115k, that car started to give issues from 20k+. Never going back to Europeans!!!
2016 Lexus GS 350 Sedan F SPORT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 8A)
Really fun to drive. Love the F Sport Instrumentation. Like the adaptive cruise and lane keeping. Extremely comfortable front seats and quality of finish and materials is outstanding. Feel like I got a good price since it was a new 2016 at $8000 discount from list. Only one with this equipment I could find. Had wanted a used LS but could not find one with the safety features. Decided to buy this and consider new LS coming out in the fall at a later date.
