Lexus Quality dropped on this one!

Jan 17, 2011 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 20 Recommended: No 

Pros: Fun, lots of bells and whistles, great style, AWD option, layout, great interior design.
Cons: Bad parts, cheap parts, lack of testing, poor quality on components.
The Bottom Line: If you like it; buy it only if you can live with less than Lexus quality.

I purchased a 2006 Lexus GS300AWD in Dec of 2008.  Since owning the car it has been repaired for many quality issues and recalls.  The dash warped, the wheels peeled, the dash rattles, the sunroof leaked, the mirrors rattled, the outside mirror ... read more

Japanese artistry on wheels - GS300 sedan

Nov 4, 2006 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Zippy, super quiet, firm handling, Mark Levinson, welcoming lights on keyless entry
Cons: Interior lighting is dim, no service interval warning
The Bottom Line: Great Buy for serious audiophiles and driving enthusiasts who want quiet, non-flagrant luxury that lasts.

The sporty new GS 300, with its low, sleek lines and very hi-tech systems, is Japanese artistry and craftsmanship on wheels. While significantly smaller than the LS400, it's just right for city driving and cramped car parks. Keyless entry is taken to new ... read more

Headlight problem had me running out of the showroom

Dec 18, 2005 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: No 

Pros: Fast, handles well, comfy, sporty.
Cons: Serious headlight problems, cramped back seat.
The Bottom Line: I loved this car, but drive alot out in the boondocks where there are few streetlights, and don't want to turn on brights to see.

I loved driving this car, it's sporty, fast, sexy, etc... but decided not to buy it based on other reviews I read on other websites concerning the headlights. Apparently there's this weird problem with the headlight not illuminating enough when on ... read more

Dangerous headlight problems!
Jan 5, 2009 (Show)
Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 
Pros: The only "pro" is the quality of service I typically receive at Lexus of Melbourne.
Cons: This will likely be the family's last Lexus.  Too many expensive  "little things."
I guess I am a little relieved to see another headlight challenge pop up here.  A month ago the low-beam on the right side of my 2006 GS apparently burned out, at great expense.  I had it replaced for over four-hundred dollars.  Okay, ... read more

a nice luxury/sport sedan
Oct 24, 2006 (Show)
Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 
Pros: Super smooth with great style and luxury
Cons: rain sensing windshield wipers, run flat tires firmer ride
Having owned a 2001 GS 300 before I can compare the two and tell you what I feel are improvements with this new model. I loved my old Lexus, the new one has a firmer ride that I don't like as much. Yes the handling is better but I don't like to feel ... read more

Navigation System
Sep 30, 2005 (Show)
Author's Product Rating: 10 Recommended: No 
Pros: Full featured; large display.
Cons: Incorrect and inaccurate mapping and directions.
The Navigation System on the 2006 Lexus GS300 is defective and Lexus has no plans to remedy. It can be UNSAFE in certain conditions - it will tell you that the next turn is on the Left when it in fact is on the Right. Multiple, specific deficiencies ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 
Pros: Looks, Stereo, luxury features, Keyless entry, Dashboard.
Cons: Temporary spare tire, Smallish trunk.
April 2006...update. I have had my new GS 300 for a year now and have had no problems at all. It starts up every time and is eager to hit the road. I don't see many on the road in my area, but I think the car is great. --- This is my 3rd Lexus and ... read more
