2006 Lexus GS 430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 6A)


DRIVING AND HANDLING: The acceleration, handling and smooth shifting are very helpful for stable control over winding roads and in fast traffic. I drove over the Santa Cruz mountains yesterday and had a blast. The handling was superb and the car was able to accelerate effortlessly passing traffic. The brakes are a bit "grabby" and the accelerator is a bit stiff. Maybe they soften with use. The stiffer suspension button is also useful. INTERIOR: Road noise is low and comfortable. The steering wheel rim diameter has been increased for a sportier feel. The cool air seat pump, bluetooth and keyless entry are nice additions. GPS is a must for big cities. Triptronic shifting is fun.

Best Features

Better handling and acceleration compared to previous GS430. Many slick electronic features: auto trunk close, keyless entry, bluetooth, extra suspension stiffness, and many more. And the center console is well designed for practical use..

Worst Features

I have XM satellite in an Escalade and the reception is much better than the Serius in the GS430, especially in wooded areas. I believe it's the antenna. The LCD graphics-interface for displaying artist-song info. needs at least 10 more digits. The interior lighting is too dark.
