this is a excellent smooth car, fantastic value secound hand however this car has some major issues. Due to this car being designed for the american market the right hand drive models leave your legs slightly twisted hence I very quickly developed a hip issue.The other problem is due to grip, this car has major issues in putting the power down in the wet as well as slidding at low speeds on bends. My wife refused to drive this car hence due to the hip issue and the stability I have since sold this vehicle. On a positive note I have never driven such a smooth quiet vehicle and would recomend this car to anyone who can put up with the draw backs.
I bought my 06 GS300SE as an alternative to the Jaguar I previously owned. I did try the 5 serious saloons, the A4 & A6 but not Mercedes as four people I know are all having problems. The ride is a tad unsettled and the tyres a little intrusive, but with just 20,000 miles on the clock I think a different choice of tyre may resolve this. The drivers seat is the most impressive place I have ever sat, it's also the quietest saloon I have ever experienced. There are no rattles, just a sense of serene watch the world go by. I would definately recommend you try one.
It was my intention to buy a luxury car, and I did favour a Merc E-Class, Audi A6, or BMW 5 Series.Having attended 2 Merc dealers locally, no one wanted to talk to me, perhaps the jeans and T shirt, thought I was a tyre kicker! Audi and BMW both appealed to me, but by the time I had added all the toys they came out more exensive than my eventual choice, the Lexus GS300SEL, which I bought from Lexus Birmingham. What a fantastic experience, a car dealer that cares, and remains so. The vehicle is smooth, quiet, and makes a statement, but does not stand out in a crowd.I average 27-36mpg, which is the same as any 2.0 litre turbo petrol engine. I have also had the dash board creaking problem, as mentioned by other reveiwers, but this has been fixed by my excellent dealer, for whom nothing is too much problem. Would I buy another Lexus, possibly, but the range really needs to expand, but the historical reliability and the unblemished dealer service may be the deciding factor.

owned for 3 years Pro engine, performance, size, looks Cons Service cost (BMW in general), folding rear seats is an option - annoying, no spare…
Even after 8 months I still look forward to driving this car. The handling is superb, the 8 speed gearbox a dream. There is a bit of lag when you…
