Lexus GS430 Reviews

This car was purchased used and it has not really given me any problems besides. 1. When I switch from defrosting to the air condition, something is sticking keeping the air condition from blowing from the vent. I have to keep pushing buttons in order for the vents to blow out air. 2. Brakes - when stopping the car shakes. 3. Fog lights - Anytime I use my fog lights the battery runs down or if you have the automatic lights on and someone is just sitting in the car, it runs the battery down as well. Other than these minor issues the car runs and drives awesome. my husband it's looking into getting a 07' BMW, unh!!! Not sold just yet. Overall, it's been a lovely vehicle and will move when you put the petal to the metal.

Hated the run flat tire ....Replaced them at 8,000. miles best thing I ever did but costly ! love the ride now

Beautiful automobile. Smooth, crisp handling at the flick of a switch. Yet a very comfortable ride, once I got rid of the run flats.

I've enjoy this car
