Let me first say that I am a career GM salesman! I would have never in a million years bought a Lexus, but we traded it in and I bought it. I LOVE the car! The seats and the interior are what sold me on the car. Thank God it was the V8 model... it's powerful, sleek, and butter smooth. The Nav and Mark Levinson audio system make trips a blast. The true test is that I bought mine AFTER someone else put 75,000 miles of business use on the car and it's still tight as a drum and runs like a dream. As I have a habit of running through a vehicle about every 6 to 9 months. This time though, I think I'll keep my Lexus and park way in the back at work!
I've been looking for a lexus for a long time and when i came upon this one I said to myself this is the one for me.The way it looked caught my eyes. and When i took it for a test drive i didn't want to go home without it. I would recommend this car to anyone who wants luxury and performance in one package.
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.
I waited for 6yrs to buy this car and
when I bought was not disappointed.I
also looked closely at
the 540i and M3. Nothing can beat the
performance of the M3 yet nothing can
beat the luxury and looks of a
black/black GS430. And with all that
luxury it is still quick enough to beat
almost all comers from a stand still at
the traffic light (including a 540i). .
The 540 is a weak car in my opinion and
is over priced. The M3 is too expensive
to maintain but handles like a F1
The GS is comfortable, fun to drive,
the interior is rich, the Audio and Nav
are just super and the quietness of the
cabin is unparalleled.Lexus service is
If you are seduced to buy GS430, be
prepared to buy another car for the
winter. This one DOES NOT run even in 2
in of snow. Traction control is
worthless. I have GS 400, Mercedes, BMW
drive up my driveway 6 days after a
snow fall, but my GS 430 got stuck
repeatedly. WORSE dealership experience
in my 25 years of driving. ABSOLUTELY
unwilling to help. Be warned. BE very
