Which used Lexus GS saloon should I buy?

Lexus's standard equipment is staggeringly good. Even if you buy a very early entry-level S version, you'll still have alloy wheels, climate control, electric rake- and reach-adjustable power steering, electric seats and a CD multi-changer. SE trim adds desirables such as traction control and leather seats.

At launch there was just one engine and it does a more than adequate job. It's a 3.0-litre, straight six, 216bhp unit, mated to a smooth five-speed automatic gearbox. Find a car with this engine and SE trim, and it's the best GS you can buy.
