"This is truly an amazing offering from Lexus. Being a Lexus you expect that quality and reliability are the highest rated in the market, My car still drives like a new car and far better than any other luxury car in the market."
Cons: "they dont put the 1uzfe engines in the newer gs's"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"these cars are amazing. they have a tremendous amount of power so you can baby the thing while your doing 100mph down the highway at 2rpms very comfortable. no other 98' to 02' bodystyle will turn heads like this with toyota v8 reliability."
"In early 2011 we bought this car, it had a mere 18608 miles.
It was still in great shape despite not being perfectly cared for.
Previous owner traded it in at 10 years old. So far, only regular maintenance.
We no longer take the car to Lexus for service as they messed up a set of wheels by applying a caustic wheel cleaner.
RWD 4 door sedan, 3700 lbs, 300HP 4.3 liter V8, seamless 5 speed auto trans. Whats NOT to love about it?
This car will outbrake a Corvette from the same year. Needless to say, that comes at a price. The brake rotors are known for warpage early in thier life and this reared its head at about 25K miles. We had the rotors cut and put back on... things were fine for about 10K when it started doing it again.
New rotors and front pads were ordered, and replaced. in the process it was discovered that someone had installed aftermarket pads, and some of the hardware was missing.
All of that now fixed it came far cheaper than taking the car to Lexus, and I know the tech who works on my cars.
Outside of that... this is an excellent driving machine.
I'm a Musclecar fan at heart, but this is more like sport sedan... and I like it!"
