"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."
