The Perfect Family Car — I love everything about this car, I have over 240K miles on this vehicle, this is one of the best made, reliable cars I've ever owned and at this point I own 5 vehicles. The acceleration, braking, handling is all awesome. The interior styling, comfort is tops. After 15 years this car still drives like new. Never been in the shop for anything other then basic maintenance, engine, transmission, all still original. I feel comfortable driving this vehicle anywhere in the country. Car is very fun to drive. Would highly recommend this particular model to everyone.

Great Solid And Quiet Car — Work or play...this is a nice touring cruiser. Can be used for leisure driving, or occasional 100mph sprint on Hwy to open-up the engine. Great traction on snow and ice. The stock 225hp engine is not bad on demand.

Pros

Rides smooth and also stylish for a 1998 car

Cons

Repairs can be very expensive on this car. It's a 98' car but I feel as if once I get a repair done something else happens and I have to get another.

Loved It Because It Was The First Car I Could Call My Own — I really like how the car drives very smoothly. It also has a nice design. I dislike how it eats gas and the price of repairs. Spent too much money repairing it over the last few years and probably have to make a few more repairs

Pretty Good — The lexus Gs300 is a pretty good car. The build quality is excellent, but the 2jz engine is slightly underpowered in such a big car. I think it is pretty fun to drive, but the #1 issue is that in Greenville SC the ONLY other people that drive this car are little old ladies.

Its A Keeper — Best looking and best 11 year old car ever with incredible performance. Goes fast but still retains its luxurious flint. Is said to be one of the few 10 year old cars that has still retained most of its value.

Pros

Ridiculously great.

Cons

GS is known as Aristo in Japan, which comes with a standard powerplant of 2JZGTE, twin-turbo variation of its American counterpart. If only they come in turbocharged...

To sum up this car: It was born out of Toyota engineering in the 90's. Some say some of the best Toyotas were produced then, this car is no exception. With the mighty 2JZ under it's hood and classic... Read More
