2003 Lexus GS 430 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Awesome car to drive and faster than
most sports cars out there. The person,
"Must get another car for winter by
jhave001" who rated this car 1.9 has no
clue what he's talking about. He rates
the performance 1.0 and reliability 1.0.
I don't think this person has ever
drove the GS430 let alone be able to
afford it. He's one of those that
drives the Ford Pinto, adds 22" Rims and
adds a Boeing 747 Spoiler and thinks
it's his Mercedes.


Best Features

Stunning exterior. More reliable than my neighbor's Mercedes, and BMW. Ooh, did I mention Lexus is #1 in JD Power Assoc. rankings.


Worst Features

Radio controls on the steering wheel. Maybe offer a manual transmission.

Review

I had a 2000 GS300, and was extremely
happy with it except that the whiny V6
left me wanting for more so for my next
car I upgraded to 2003 GS430 with NAV,
17'' Wheels and Mark Levinson.
Performance is unreal, the only cars
that beat me so far are the BMW M3, M5
and the Corvette and with (maybe)
exception of the M5 none of them are
nearly as luxurious as my Lexus. Sound
sysem is off the hook, if you turn it
up a little you can see side mirrors
vibrating a little with the music, and
the NAV is super accurate and a cinch
to use (unlike my dad's on his 745).
If you have $50K+ to spend on a car you
will not find a better combination of
luxury and performance.


Best Features

Super fast V8, Nav, Mark Levinson stereo and pretty much everything else.


Worst Features

Have the trunk open up into the back seat for skis, more horsepower (why did it not increase even though .3 liters were added?), bring back the shift buttons from the GS400, everything else is perfect.
