Review

I love my car - 3 years later there is not another car on the road that I want to drive. The only down side we have seen is that the brakes wear unreasonably quick - 20k miles or there about. That does not change my mind about the car - she handles oh so well!


Best Features

Backup camera and parking assist. I park in a high rise garage and the backup camera and parking assist are great features for backing into spaces.


Worst Features

Absolutely none.

Review

Bought this car from my son who put over 45k miles in less than 14 months. Read editor's model review which a lot better than consumer's ratings. Had a minor problem with tire warning coming on and not a very smooth ride. The dealer techs kept replacing the sensor in the tires and the warning would stay off for a couple thousand miles and I would have to go back in again. Well, to make a long story short the front struts were bad!! Although out of warranty Lexus replaced them and now it handles like a 60k car again. I own a small auto repair shop and you will not go wrong buying this car for around $30k :]


Best Features

The power, comforts, back up camera, monitor/nav system. Full package.


Worst Features

Interior lights

Review

This is my second GS - the last was a 2000 GS 400. This car rocks - it is exceptionally comfortable to drive in, has an incredible stereo system and a truly amazing adaptive cruise control capability. On a recent 400+ mile drive, I averaged nearly 28.3 mpg - higher than the EPA rating!


Best Features

Cruise control, navigation system, stereo system. And who can forget the superb engine! Its not the fastest on the road but it rocks incredibly well for any normal situation and gets slightly better mileage in the trade than its bigger engined cousins.


Worst Features

Parking assist system is annoying - way too sensitive to facilitate parking, I just keep it turned off. The climate control system also tends to default - usually - to recirculate with the a.c on even on a cool day when I guess it tries to cool the air and then reheat to the desired temperature.

Review

Excellent controls and control panel design. Lexus is known for having logical and organized panels. High technology and dependable. Good resale value. Outstanding gas mileage 26 mpg hwy 20 city. The run flat tires on the car are terrible and expensive. I replaced 5 tires in 13 months at $400 a tire. I finally traded the vehicle in when the dealership informed me this was an ongoing problem with all of their sport vehicles and there was nothing they could do about the problem.


Best Features

Navigation, bluetooth and voice commands.


Worst Features

Lexus made one big mistake by including the run flat tires.
