2007 Lexus GS 430 User Reviews
- In a league of its own in terms of overall features and looks
- Brakes are touchy but can be replaced at no charge by lexus
Absolutley love it. Nav/Touch screen is years ahead of any other option...
My BMW 545 would have been in the shop 5 times by now...

- Good customer service
- Poor Handling, Tranmission problems, Poor brakes
I traded in my 5 series BMW for this car and after several months I am a little disappointed. The car has had some quality issue and the handling ride and braking are nowhere near to the 5 series BMW. I regret this purchase. This is a little cheaper than the 5 series but with my experience it should at least $10,000 cheaper. As a whole I find this car overpriced and overrated....read morehide

- No trim specified for this review
- hot, sexy looks; scorching speed; amazing value
- expensive tires; expensive speeding tickets; get used to envious people hating you.
This is a car that is easily worth twice what I paid. Try finding a luxo-rocket for 53K with the same sexy body; and don't believe those who say this car is not as exciting as bmw. I drove bmw's, they don't compare. Turn on the power mode and bury the throtle...your body will be pinned back on your seat, your passenger will hold on for dear life, you will hear a satisfying, sexy growl coming from the exhaust, and you will see the other cars dissapear on your rearview mirror. Most people can't believe that a car that looks so luxurious and sexy could be so damn fast. Of Course, these are the same reasons most other drivers will hate you...you'll activate their low self-esteem, and you'll make their vehicles seem inadecuate. If you get the GS, try and find the 430. Yes, the 350 and 450h are quick too, but they don't have the V8 torque and sexy exhaust note. And watch out for traffic cops; I've been caught doing 70 on a 40 zone. I honestly thought I was going about 55... it IS that quick and smooth....read morehide

- If you can keep your foot from testing the V8 power, gas economy is not bad. I love the GPS.
- Smoooth ride, lots of room which makes getting there half the fun.
Sporty yet, comfortable it is a step up from my teenage years of driving a Vega and carrying a case of oil in the back. It is a pleasure to drive. The other thing that I like about this car is the side airbags.

- Excellent GPS, 26 MPG hwy 20 cty, high technology and comfort.
- The main problem with this car are the run flat tires. In addition it is more luxury than sport.
Every car manufactor should take a class with Lexus prior to building a automoble. The ride and dependability of a lexus is outstanding. However, Lexus is more of a luxury vehicle than a sports vehicle. If you desire the ride and feel of a sports vehicle I would suggest a BMW or Mercedes. Lexus is pure luxury and it shows when you really drive the vehicle aggressively. If you plan on buying this vehicle it is important that you realize that the run flat tires on this vehicle are terrible. I replaced five tires after the first 13 months and at $400 a tire that can add up quickly. The dealership mentined that numerous buyers complained about tires. The sale professionals were actually suggesting to buyers to purchase normal tires and a spare for the trunk. I decided that I would trade the car in after spending $2,000 on tires. I did not want to fill my trunk with a spare. Another good note is that the vehicle has excellent residual value. Lucky for me I did not lose a lot when I traded it in. Now when I see a GS430 I say that is a nice vehicle, but I can't afford the tires....read morehide

- Unbelievable handling in both suspension settings
- All I have found so far is the blinking red light at night when you go over the speed limit LOL
I have had many different cars over the past few years and nothing has ever compared to this car for the price. It handles with ease and yet gives you the feeling of being in total control. I have had the car for three months now and all I have found that I dont like is the red light at night that blinks when I go over the speed limit. If this is all i can find with this car then how I can possibly complain. And the price is right for what you get....read morehide

- The car is still a sight for sore eyes.
- You have your maxima's and altima's trying and I say TRYING to look like the GS, PLEASE STOP TRYING!
The GS will always be a performer and a looker. I must share this with you, I was at an auto zone a few weeks ago, when I met a worker who had the balls to tell me, don't be fool by all the lexus vehicles, they where all built here in the USA, and the engine was built and installed by GM. I laugh and said don't be a fool, you wish GM had something to do with the engineering of the lexus vehicles, even ford's top vehicle the ford GT which cost over $250,000 according to car and driver, whom mentioned that after driving the ford GT for a while it feels like a focus. you will never say the same for a lexus. Lexus will be coming out with a new IS according to lexus they are going to cram the LS 460 engine into the IS damd!! that is going to be a fast car. Make no mistake lexus is on the rise and here to stay....read morehide
