2008 Lexus GS 460 User Reviews
- No trim specified for this review
This is ridiculous. Is the GS 460 a great car? Absolutely! Is it the best luxury car for the money. No; that honor goes to the carmaker known historically for manufacturing the most car for your buck - Hyundai.
The 2009 Genesis is every bit as stylish (more so depending on the eye of the beholder), more powerful, roomier, quieter, smoother riding, more fuel efficient (plus, unlike the GS 460, it can run on regular gas with no pinging or knocking), and has a much better warranty. All this for about $15,000 less....read morehide

- 22 mpg. around town, great stereo, handles well
- Run Flat tires very noisy
Great value in this category with normal Lexus excellent qulaity and service. Fast, smooth and over 25 mpg. on the highway with a V-8 is tough to beat.

- mpg, in shop for repairs, small trunk, too big price
Not what I expected.
Seats aren't that comfortable, pass front seat had to be repaired, problem with wiring, this car is an over priced toyota, you'd be better off with an Acura or Infinity and much better off with a Caddy CTS for the money, $20k less than this beast!
Friend told me not to buy a Lexus, he had one and when it went off warranty look out for the $repair bills!$
Always something breaking.
Three thousand for a new exhaust system?
Too small trunk, too big price for what you get....read morehide

- New engine, sleek looks, technology
- Trunk entry
The GS 460 brings a welcome engine upgrade to the V8 GS lineup, and the performance is improved. The outside was changed slightly; I like the turn signal indicators and the new grille--depends on the color. Until Lexus brings out the GS-F this is the most powerful non-hybrid GS yet, although the GS 350 is definitely worth a look and more popular....read morehide

- Quality construction, luxury features, great fuel economy for a V8, love the V8 growl, fast
- A little pricey, but hey it's a Lexus
This is as near perfect a car as I've ever had. The V8 engine is incredible -- outstanding power, acceleration, and speed while getting over 25 mpg on the highway and better than 18 in the city.
The Mark Levinson surround sound system is best demonstrated when watching a DVD movie (while car is parked). It's like being in a movie theater.
Some say the trunk is small, but I haven't found that to be the case. It holds all my wife's stuff, and she has lots of stuff.
It's a great road car with the most comfortable soft leather seats I've ever seen. Love the heat and ventilation. My back normally hurts on long trips in my other cars, but not in the GS460.
It's quiet, little wind noise, little road noise, and the 8-speed transmission is as smooth as silk. I love the growl of the V8 engine. It is a real pleasure to drive.
I wish I could point out some negatives, but I can't. Sorry....read morehide

- Looks, Quick, Lots of safety features.
- rather small trunk, not a lot of back seat space but enough
Traded my 06 GS 430 for the 460. This car is completely different in positive ways. The way it drives, the power, the transmission, the )turniing ratio (34 ft. vs 37)
