Great Car but not a BMW...
By mrjohhnycat on


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


Traded in my BMW 328CI because of miles and needed a bigger car. Pound per pound this car is the best value, true keyless entry, great nav, all the creature favorites that you need. The only thing I don't like about it is that it is not that fun to drive. The sport mode is to stiff and artifical, the increased power mode is still not that strong. The acceleration at high spead is not there. The trunk is small and the wheel wells get in the way, you can't put two large suitcases in the back.

Best Features

True keyless entry, great exterior style, back up camera, assist parking, heated/cooled leather seats, auto lights, easy cruise control.

Worst Features

Toyota needs to make the Lexus brands funner to drive. You don't have the BMW feel and control and don't let them fool you, that's the market they are going after. The acceleration is to week at high speads and I don't feel as confident in this car verses my BMW.
