1999 Lexus GS 400 4dr Sedan


Whoa, what a machine. The workmanship
is near perfect. I bought mine used
with 89k on the odometer...runs like
it's new. Only nuisance with the GS4 is
loosing your change during WOT
acceleration. But who cares!!! E-shift
is fun like working a game controller.
I cruise to work at 80~95mph...the car
rides and handles very well. The
chassis is slightly loose at high
speeds over highway bumps and
cornering. TRD has components to
tighten things up. This car has a very
solid engine that will handle a 400rwhp
upgrade. Many mods are available. My
next upgrade is the L-tuned steering
module, 2800 rpm TC, and LSD.

Best Features

Vehicle Skid Control(VSC),VVT-I, reliabiliy,workmanship inside and most noticably under the hood. L-tuned suspension(lowered ~1.2") and L-tuned exhaust are on mine and available thru the dealer. Include a K&N drop-in air filter and you will achieve 25.5 mpg on the highway...I do.

Worst Features

The following upgrades are available for do-it-yourself but not thru the dealer: high stall speed torque converter (TC), limited slip rear diff (LSD).
