I Love this car. It's stylish, classy and a pure joy to drive. Very reliable and dependable vehicle. This is the 4th Lexus I've owned and if and when I decide to get another one IT WILL BE ANOTHER LEXUS. Highly recommend this vehicle, it's also sporty. Has every option you can think of.

What a gem

Got this car with 130k miles but what a great car. I'll buy it again and again instead of a cheaply made 15k-20k $ brand new generic car. Only thing I miss is streaming over Bluetooth. Car has tons of features, security. Doors feels sturdy when you close them instead of those super light doors in cheap new cars. Love the car, love what depreciation made on this car.

We bought this car nearly 8 years ago when it was 2 years old and had about 18000 miles and run flat tires. The car now has 36000 miles (yes it's driven by a little old lady) and is on Michelins that greatly improved its ride and road noise, Low maintenance cost, and still great performance (the little old lady could be the one from Pasadena..."Go Granny, Go") and is still beautiful in its very dark blue original paint which stays showroom new. There are no problems anywhere and the interior is only degraded by the weak LED lighting that Lexus was still developing at the time. It's very quiet and solid and gas mileage is okay considering the acceleration (it will still smoke the pants off the 66 Corvette 327/350 I was privileged to drive in college). Probably one of the best of a great company.

Amazing vehicle

Bought a 2006 GS 430 with 97,000 miles on it for under $15,000. This car is amazing! I've owned/own Honda, Nissan and Acura and this car beats them all hands down based on fit/finish, luxury, performance and ride. I cannot believe this car has almost 100,000 miles. It drives as if brand new. The ride is almost silent. The engine is unbelievably powerful and the transmission shifts so smoothly you almost cannot detect it. My stepfather has always been a Toyota fanatic, and now I know why. I'm hooked. I hope to put another 100,000 on this jewel. If you can get a nice used one, go for it. I would never pay $60,000 for a car, but paying less than $15,000 for this one, I got an absolute steal!!!

I just bought a 2006 GS 430. This car is awesome. I had a 2003 Infiniti before but this car is so nice inside with all the details, it is amazing. I love the look and feel of the car. Rides very smooth and very resposive with the V-8. Only thing I notice negatively, is it does not seem to get the best gas mileage but I would highly recommend the car.

Sad Trend

600 page owners manual. Nobody thought to add extra lighting in a black interior. 2nd rate sterio. Low profile tire perfectly positiones the wheels to scrape the curbs at $600 per mistake. Doesn't anyone else want manual choice windshiels wipers? Why do we need an electronic motor to close the trunk that final inch? I have owned five Lexus's but view this incarnation not as a "drivers car". It is more like an IT nerd's concoction of a Command Center on four wheels. Ugh!

This car will turn heads

I've owned a 2006 GS 430 for about a year and half now, and I can safely say that it's the nicest car I've ever driven, and that includes Benz, BMW, and Porsche. My car came loaded, with the Pre-Collision System (PCS), Mark Levinson audio, Navigation, etc. If you've never driven a Lexus with the PCS, you need to. The car automatically adjusts to the speed of the traffic around you, which makes this the easiest car to take on a road trip EVER. The driving experience is smooth and refined, but doesn't lack in excitement when you give the car some gas. The cabin is refined and quiet, and the climate controlled front seats are supportive and give a great ride. The V8 is responsive, but doesn't drain gas too badly. I get about 21 mpg city, 27 highway. Premium fuel is required, which gets pricey sometimes. The exterior isn't an edgy design, but it is very attractive. In red, the car turns heads everywhere I go, and I get far too many looks from pretty women for a guy as ugly as I am. In short, this car is fast, smooth, and refined. I've had a couple issues that were covered under warranty, but I didn't expect to have any on a Lexus. Other than that, and a smallish trunk, this car is, to steal a phrase, the ultimate driving machine.

I had an Acura RL that was very comfortable and a great value but the GS is a huge step up as the level of quality and refinement is no comparison. The V8 is so sweet, the slight exhaust rumble is just perfect and the styling turns heads where ever I go. This is the perfect combination of sport and luxury with an unbeleivable level of technology that is seamless to the driver.
