What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It's roomy, well equipped and refined

Against Its image is bland, and some rivals drive better

Verdict A spacious luxury saloon lacking in soul

Go for… 4.3 V8 petrol

Avoid… 3.0 V6 petrol

Lexus GS Saloon
  • 1. There have been reports of suspension faults, so listen carefully for knocking or clonking noises
  • 2. GS tends to get through brake pads rather quickly
  • 3. Even the base trim has climate control, electric rake- and reach-adjustable power steering, electric seats and a CD multichanger
  • 4. If the car has clocked up over 60,000 miles, make sure that the cambelt has been replaced
  • 5. Boot space is generous, as is rear-seat space
