"This silver Lexus with gray leather interior goes to be checked up every 6 months. Its original owner was a single senior lady who only put a few thousand miles a year on it. I'm another senior and bought it with 31,000 miles on it in 2007. I've driven twice to Florida but other than that, it's only been driven in our city, and less than 4000 miles per year. I put a new battery and new tires on it this year."

Most reliable vehicle ever!

"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."

"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."

"Do not like the rear wheel drive. Even with the "snow package" option, the car performs poorly on wet roads as far as traction. Otherwise the car handles real well. Very reliable, sound car."
