2005 Lexus GS 300 [Discontinued] User Reviews
- Great acceleration, and smooth drive, easy controls.
- Rear wheel drive makes it a little less nimble.
great fun to drive, excellent for long rides, very quiet and comfortable. Have 65K miles and no problems yet. Beats BMW 525.

- All wheel drive option
- None I can think of
If you are not too worried about acceleration under 6 secs and a top speed of 165 mph, then you would do well to at least test drive this
With Lexus quality oozing from every pore and enough "umph"to blow
away a BMW 530i, at a very reasonable price, the GS300 is the ideal
second car or third car.
There is an all wheel drive option which is good in blizzards and such
like conditions, but it has flexible allocation between front and rear wheels.
So on a brght sunny day you are riding on 100% back wheel thrust,
but if the snow comes down like a "ton of bricks" then the system pushes 50% of the thrust to the two front wheels. If you have the misfortune to drive with your eyes closed into a ditch, then the all wheel drive will transfer power to the wheels with most traction as appropriate. With the numerous safety features the car has bult into it, you have very little chance of the ditch!!
So if you want a car wiith high quality, adequate power, stylisly
designed, highly evolved with state of the art advanced systems
and a very reasonalbe price, then this is it. You also get rock solid reliability and durability and after three years you can sell it for top dollar....read morehide

- Great handling, less expensive than BMW 5 series and more power. Great service.
- None yet
Bot a GS400 6 years ago and couldn't get myself to stop owning a Lexus, bought the GS300 thinking I was going to give up a lot of power and didn't.
