This is a classy sedan. Mine was fully loaded. avg 27mpg with 0-60 in 5 seconds. This is a quiet ride with smart suspension and tight handling. The GS450h was designed to compete with BMW 8 series and it certain achieved it!
I recently purchased a certified GS450h. It is in excellent condition and having the 161 pt check done gives me peace of mind. I am blown away with how fast it is. A friend with a Porsche drove it and said it is much quicker off the line. The lines are great and I love the the design hasn't changed, so you can't tell that it isn't brand new. Got to love the Lexus Experience.
Speed off the line; 26 MPG; Awesome stereo; dash is easy to use; did I mention the speed?
Blue tooth isn't as easy to use as my wife's new Mazda CX-9.
I bought this after 3 BMWs and did so because service is so awful on BMWs in Southern California. Lexus service is truly amazing and so far ahead of any other car type that it is hard to believe. However, this car is like driving down the road on a jello square. It handles loosely, and because of the continuously variable transmission it feel like you are driving a motor boat more than a car.
Psychological gratification of driving a hybrid, Lexus service
I just drove my car home last night and still have to set up all the bells and whistles, but what a lot of fun just driving has been for 24 hrs. This car is smoking fast and the power is so smooth and linear - it just keeps pulling until you are well over 100.
The nav, slingshot acceleration, gorgeous fit and finish, a real pretty car.
I migrated from an '06 Corvette C6, and was expecting a letup in performance. Not so! This car is extremely fun to drive, and I am averaging around 26 mpg, compared to 19 in the much-lighter Corvette. I am totally satisfied with this, my first Lexus ever.
