"I bought this car used 11 years ago when is had about 45,000 miles on it. I drove it the last 11 years and pretty much have no major issues. The engine gasket did have leaks, and thus drip into the alternator causing it to went bad every other year. The other issue is the engine light. It went on since 4 years ago, and although after replacing the catalytic converter the issue persist. Overall, very sound and solid car."
"An amazing car. It just keeps ticking like a fine Swiss watch. Just use synthetic Mobile 1. Keep the fluids topped off. I have never changed the timing belt or chain. Heater is now luke warm at idle. I suppose I'll give it a water pump but not necessary. Hood is chipped but still looks great! Interior seat...driver side I had recovered($200)and the heated seats still work....! Just buy one...take care of it and it will take care of you. Period."
Pros: "quick, handles well and great looking body"
Cons: "would like newer steering wheel design"

"2000 GS 300. just bought this wonderful car. super clean 80k miles. this car is what all autos should be..controls where they should be...goes when you step on it ...no annoying ck engine lights like my german car...easy to use & and service...new lexus mats still available also! love the rear wheel drive..put on winter snow tires and with the snow mode and traction control I hook up very well. Nice size car also. I previously had an LS430 but wife wouldn't drive it due to 'old man's car' syndrome with the big steering wheel, big nose. She loves this one. It is very comfortable, reliable and great looking. Good size also at approx 190" long. I bought it after looking at numerous reviews on it on this site. This is a secret winner. IF you can find one in nice shape, BUY IT! it will last for a LONG time. The 300 six cylinder motor is perfect for this chasis."
"I purchased this car as a used vehicle with low mileage 3 years ago. I use it for daily commuting and a few longer trips during the year.The reliability and quality are first rate.The power ,handling, comfort and sound system make it a pleasure to drive. I have driven many cars and trucks/SUVs, this one is the best one for me."
"Excellent handling and acceleration. Not as heavy as an MBZ in the same class and year, but overall quicker and smoother. Cockpit is tight and driver seat should adjust to move a little further back. Still, this car is a pleasure to drive and is not as temperamental as the German equivalents. Actually, Lexus quality may have peaked for this class in the early 2000's. Later models have a tinsely feel."
"Purchased this car used, 6 years/ 45,000 miles. Has been
faultless except for rear door lock module failure (both)
and oxygen sensor failure (both). I have never had a
problem with either of these systems on my other cars and
have had many. Mostly I have driven luxury cars. Note;
for all cars for at least 30 years I used only Amzoil Prod-
exclusively. Current odometer on this 2001 GS is 110,000."
"I just drove this car to Tulsa Oklahoma from south Florida and it rode like a charm. Averaged 26 miles per gallon and the air conditioning never got above low. I love Lexus cars they are the best. I have had the car for 8 years now and it only has 108000 on it. It is a 2000 so that is less than 8,00o per year and it gets it's regular maintenance."
"This car is very beautiful, it is silver with a full body kit with dark tinted windows, it has 20 inch chrome rims with brand new tires, custom halo headlights and custom led tail lights, custom exhaust and a cold air intake system, also a dvd/cd double din screen with 2 mtx 12 inch subs with amp, black on black interior all leather original and in great condition with no rips. This car has a clean title, most of the miles put on the car are all highway miles, I am a district manager and used this car for the first 2 years I had it. Drives very good."
"My Lexus Aristo (GS 300) is my baby. I am the second owner and it now has a little over 220,000 miles on it. I really did not do more than change oil regularly and tires when needed. I also had all the belts and other fluids changed as recommended. It gives me pleasure and a smile everytime I drive this car. Wonderful car!"
Pros: "comfort, sexy, power, options, class custimization"
Cons: "when speeding heavy car take into consideration"
