Luxury Jet Fighter
By GS4Man on


1998 Lexus GS 400 4dr Sedan


Super smooth, quiet, scary fast.
Build quality is outstanding and the
feeling of luxury without tackiness is
excellent. Feels much higher quality
than the BMW 540i, especially in and
around the dash and the quality of the
leather. The leather in the BMW feels
like naugahyde in comparison The
stereo is excellent and makes the BMW
sound like a cheap boom box. Handles
extremely well, even when pushed hard,
though there is some insulation from
road feel. This car has been VERY
reliable and the dealer has treated me
like a king for service. All in all,
I will be looking hard at a new GS
when the model style changes.

Best Features

Smooth, qiiet, very strong accelleration. High build quality.

Worst Features

Seats need a tad more side support and lumbar adjustment. Needs a switchable steering option to dial in more road feel.
