Best car or GS I’ve ever owned

I bought this 2017 GS 350 as my third GS I’ve owned. It is the best of the 3. I bought it new and had for 10 years. Still looks great and runs the same. I love driving it and will hate giving it up at some point as they no longer make them.

5.0

This is the seventh Lexus that I have bought.

All of the Lexus vehicles that I have owned have a certain similar feel to them. They all drive amazingly great and they don't break down. Very reliable!
