Amazing luxury and sports car

Have had my 2013 GS350 F Sport for around 2 years now. Beautiful car to drive, great performance with rear wheel drive V6 and F Sport suspension. No mechanical issues, just normal service and maintenance so far. Such a big shame they have discontinued this model, will keep mine for many years for sure. The only downside I would think of would be back seat not folding down making it less practical to fit longer items if needed. Show details

What a car

175000kms and 10 years from brand new and not a single mechanical failure. They say the battery should start to wear out by 8 years but personally speaking, it's still charging like new.

Only fault is my right speaker stopped working. All servicing has been carried out by myself every 5000kms even thought the manual recommends every 15000kms.

One thing I love is that when the motor powers on there is no ugly engine crank noises like Mazda and Subaru's start stop tech. The cvt in my opinion is so seemless due to the quiet motor and lack of jerking when gears change showing off its excellent build quality in all departments.

Lexus Toyota is truly winning the car game. Show details

A Satisfying trouble free luxury car

My third Lexus after owning a LS400 and a GS430 then a Grandeur 3.8 now a Lexus GS350 , the GS350 is the pick of all, but the LS400 and the Grandeur had the best comfortable ride, the GS350 uses less petrol than all of them and handles better also with a firmer ride. the grandeur was a more versatile car with fold down rear seats to the trunk with features that compare to all of them I only wish that they still imported them.

Highly recommend for kids and family

We used to have tiguan for my 2 kids. That was horrible experience to have very little one. We bought lexus gs this year. This is most comfortable car i have ever had.

There are huge spaces front and back seats especially back seats has no dump in the middle. It is all flat and straight floor for more comfortable for kids. Also really good fuel consumption 6l only.

Amazing car for the money

Bought new in 2005 and drove for 11 years. Very little maintenance, great performance and handling. Leading edge looks, loads of creature comforts compared to what was available at the time. One of the best cars for the money I've ever owned. No regrets. The only criticism is you have to hit a few too many buttons to get into the display panel to control basic functions.

Great car with topnotch quality

I had the car for over two years as a demo from the dealer. Great car with great performance and fun! Every time sitting behind the wheel, it makes me smile.

Though the service cost is high ($700/yr), the reliability and quality of cabin material cannot be beaten. You can find a good independent auto shop for service for around $400.

Compared it with a BMW when purchasing, only let down on this Lexus is its gearbox, it's a touch slower than BMW. But the options equipped, fine quality and long-term reliability win my check. I loved the car since purchase and would definitely recommend people shopping in the segment to check it out.

Nice looking and good quality

The 2014 Lexus GS comes in one well-equipped trim. All-wheel drive is available, as are extras like heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a premium sound system. Some models feature numerous sports enhancements, including variable sports suspension, a rear spoiler, and more-powerful brakes. The enhancements are nice, but the base GS delivers plenty of luxury.

Nice looking car and great comfort

Everything was excellent with the car especially the reliability compare to other competitor.

Been 5 years owning the car nothings wrong.

Put the new michelin pilot sport 4.

Wow amazing so quiet.

Smooth and solid lexus sedan.

The only problem i choose the v6 2500 cc was enough but less power for a man and a bit thristy.

1 lt for 9 km.

Service was cheap for normal service with liqui moly oil 10-40w and oil filter cost me $250.

Why GS 250 is in shadows of GS350 and even IS range? The reviews from owners on GS250 are actually very positive. Any guidance as I lean towards GS250 please?
