The 2008 Lexus GS 350 Base is a rear-wheel drive mid-sized luxury sedan with a sporty double wishbone front and multilink rear suspension. Riding on 17-inch alloy wheels with performance tires, the GS 350 Base gets its power from a 3.5-liter, 303-hp DOHC V6, paired with a 6-speed adaptive automatic shiftable transmission. Fuel economy averages a decent 19/27 mpg.
Standard safety features include electronic brakeforce distribution, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, traction and stability control, foglights, automatic headlights, HID xenon headlamps, a first aid kit, tire monitor, and auto-dimming mirrors. Mirrors with turn signals are a new addition for 2008. Dual front-side, side impact, and front and rear side curtain airbags with passenger deactivation are also part of the package. Options add the parallel parking-friendly Parking Assist, rain-sensing wipers, adaptive cruise control, crash sensors, and a voice-activated navigation system that's paired with a rearview camera.
In terms of luxury, look no further than heated leather seats, along with leather and wood interior trim. Aluminum trim for the gauges is new this year. 10-way power front seats include memory settings for the driver as well as for the power tilt and telescopic steering. A 10-speaker 6-CD player features an MP3 input jack, with controls on the steering wheel. A sunroof, cruise control, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, Bluetooth, trip computer, folding mirrors, remote entry, keyless start, a garage remote, and dual-zone climate control all ensure passenger comfort. The audio system can be upgraded to 14 speakers, and many owners wish the optional satellite radio was standard. Other options include a rear spoiler and a cargo net.

Automatic all-wheel drive comes with a limited slip differential in the 2008 Lexus GS 350 AWD. Front and rear torque defaults 30/70, but the automatic system will apportion it 50/50 when the road gets slick. The extra traction adds to the sporty performance of this luxury mid-sized sedan, which is fueled by a 303-hp, 3.5-liter DOHC V6. A 6-speed shiftable automatic is the only transmission. 17-inch alloy wheels hold performance tires, with the option to add 18-inch wheels with run-flat tires.
The 2008 GS 350 AWD ranks high for comfort and quality, with its standard heated leather seats and 10-way power front seats with memory settings for the driver, mirrors, and steering wheel. Folding mirrors with turn signals are new this year, along with aluminum gauge accents to go with the leather and wood trim. Cruise control and audio controls for the 6-CD changer and MP3 player reside on the steering wheel. A trip computer, temperature and compass display, dual-zone climate control, and full power features are also standard. Remote operation is key in the GS 350 AWD, and includes remote entry, keyless ignition, and a universal garage remote. There are even more bells and whistles in the standard security system, intermittent wipers, Bluetooth, and power sunroof.
Though reliability ratings have fallen in recent years, the 2008 GS 350 AWD has a full array of safety equipment. 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, traction and stability control, Hill Start Assist, electronic brakeforce distribution, a tire monitor, and dual front-side and side curtain airbags for both rows of the sedan are all standard. Lighting the way are HID xenon headlights, automatic headlights, and foglights. All mirrors feature an auto-dimming function. Parallel parking assist, adaptive cruise control, crash sensors, and rain-sensing wipers are optional, and a backup camera is bundled with a voice-activation navigation system. An upgraded speaker system, rear spoiler, and satellite radio are the few features left as options.
