What should I look for in a used Lexus GS saloon?

Lexus claims a regular top 10 position in the What Car? Reliability Index. However, in contrast to the peerless performance of its big brother, the LS, the GS is only average; it's less reliable than a BMW 5-series or a Mercedes E-class.

According to the index, its brakes and suspension were the areas most likely to need work, although the bills when they come are modest for an executive car. Engines and transmissions are pretty near faultless, provided that servicing is kept up.
