1999 Lexus GS 300 3.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
Front droplinks and bushings required replacing.
Rear drivers door lock not working on central locking.
Centre exhaust section rusted probably due to being parked for a year before I got it, would have been expensive from Lexus. Instead cut out and welded a straight through pipe replacing the centre silencer. No has a nice sound when being pushed.
Lovely car to own that has more and more depth every time you use it.
Can cover great distances very rapidly; so much so that it's not until you look down at the speedo do you realise that you could be in an awful lot of trouble.
The handling is very good for a big car, although if you have to change line quickly, you do have to muscle it as she doesn't like that. Also caution is required in the wet, as it can be tail happy, although if you're paying attention you can catch it easily. If you want to play and hang the back out no problem, dry or wet!
As I said before very comfortable, and women love it. All the toys, leather and very safe. Plenty of metal and airbags around you.
Very reliable, and fairly straight forward to work on. A little thirsty in town, but grand on the open road.
Can really hustle on fast roads until your nerve runs out and you can embarrass much more sporty cars. (6 series BMW's, Porker's etc.)
Smooth, powerful, and keeps a low profile. Very few questions at checkpoints!
Buy one and give it the time to get under your skin. A few day long journeys across the country in it and she'll be the mistress that pays for dinner!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
