"The is the best vehicle that I have ever owned. It is VERY fast and sporty yet gets good mileage. Much thought was put into this vehicle as it fits like a glove and has every imaginable extra included. Will be keeping this one for a long time."
"Very good dependable car I like a lot. The negatives include non-illuminated overhead spot light buttons that are hard to find in the dark, the seat itself could be more comfortable and the seat warmers have only one setting. This six year old car still does not look dated and will last me for several more years."
"I own this vehicle and never been so happy. It rides amazingly smooth, it's has great acceleration, very realiable, and it looks pretty. I feel very proud when driving this vehicle. Trust me, You Will Love It!!"
"It does everything well. It corners gracefully and predictably. It is a bit underpowered. The GS 400 solves that problem nicely. It is comfortable and extremely reliable. Great gas mileage for a sedan. The ergonomics are outstanding. Everything is where it should be. The car feels like an extension of my body. The rear view mirror dims automatically. The seats have a memory setting. The transmission shifts predictably and is extremely responsive. The steering is tight and has just the right level of resistance at speed. O K, I love the car."
"I have had my turn at BMW, Mercedes, Cadilac, etc. and still come back to Lexus. The GS450 is the best of the bunch. A very quick car in a luxurious skin. Never a problem, great fuel econ. and 0-60 in 4.9seconds while seating 5! Great car."
"I just traded in my 2000 Volvo s80 T6 for this 2000 GS. Wow, what a great car! The car shifts gears so smooth you can't even tell when it shifts. Performance is way better than than what it says on the website. I have ran 0-60 in about 5.9-6.5. There is no way it takes 7.7 to get to 60. The regular stereo is great. The leather seats are very soft but at the same time hold you in place as you go around a curv. Reliability is excellent. When I bought this car the lexus mechanic said this is the best inline 6 engine made. All around this is a great car.
Leather, performance, great handling, very reliable.
Better sound system, larger wheels, a few more hp would be nice."
"A superb car to drive daily. It is quite, luxurious, and relaxing all around. The ratings on Consumer Reports for this car are almost perfect, and this car is recommended my Consumer Reports as well. I highly recommend this vehicle to anyone and everyone because it has style and substance."
"I purchased this car new and it is the best car I have ever owned. The in line six is very smooth and has adequate performance. The only problem I have had was the Homelink unit which was replaced under warranty. After eight years and 61,000 miles, the car still seems like new."
"We've owned ours for over 7 years and +155K miles! No major mechanical problems, and still drives smooth and fast. The manual shifter is fun, once you get used to it. We only wish we could afford the new model!"
"The only reason I didn't give all 5 stars is the brakes. As they wear they begin to pop as you go from drive to reverse and back. Lexus say it's the floating disc and is normal but I think it's a design flaw. It's annoying to me but may not bother most."
