"I bought my 08 GS350 3 years ago with 88k miles. I have not had a single repair. I take my car to Toyota for maintenance. The Toyota dealer has significantly lower rates. I currently have 140k trouble free miles. I love the power of my gs350. It is far better than my last Lexus (05 es330). However, when i avoid using the power I am rewarded with awesome mpg. I routine average 25-26 mpg in mixed driving. The highway mpg is surprising. According to my calculations, I averaged 34.9 mpg (car mpg indicator higher) on a recent trip from TX to FL and back. I used some hypermiling techniques. I inflated the tires from 32 to 44 psi, used a/c sparingly, and traveled at 65 mph. I plan to keep this car a long time. A friend of mine has 250k on his gs. The only repair he experienced was trannie replacement about 200k miles."
Pros: "Great look, smooth performance and build quality"
Cons: "ride not as nice on rough surfaces"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8
"I have owned 2001 GS, 2006 GS and my current 2011 GS (CPO 30000 miles)All great cars except the 2011 has a much firmer ride. Still very smooth on smooth surfaces but it is not so smooth on lessor surfaces."
"Beautiful red metallic looks like candy apple. 297 hp gas and 43 hp electric total 340hp and 24mph in town and up to 33 on highway. 2011 GS450h. 0-60 5.1. Quarter 13.9. Otherwise everything is perfect. Would of liked the navigation system to be upgraded to current standards. Great service at dealerships."
