  • In the highly competitive V8-powered luxury sedan class, the more powerful Lexus GS remains right up front with the segment leaders. The Lexus GS name is new this year, but the car is pretty much last year's GS with a new liter V8 and an eight-speed.

    The Good The V-8 and eight-speed transmission combine to give the Lexus GS excellent fuel economy for a car of this size, and its suspension tech offers comfort and sporty performance. The Bottom Line Although the Lexus GS offers a comfortable ride and practical.

    If Lexus is synonymous with anything it is refinement. Nobody to blame but themselves for that one. Ever since the first Lexus emerged from the.

    Further helping the road-holding performance and safety is Lexus' Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management VDIM , a system that takes input from multiple sensors, including wheel speed, steering angle, and brake pressure. We've owned this car for about 10 years. Overall, I'm disappointed with the car. We give the GS a high rating for performance, as it is amazing what Lexus wrings out of this V

    Today's Short Stint car provoked strong opinions from two of our top editors. I am underwhelmed with Lexi. I find them for the most part to be gussied-up Toyotas, with all the lack of passion, soul and fun that implies. And as much as the Lexus family makes me shrug and go, "whatever," I am most specifically unimpressed with its GS line of vehicles.

    GSs have always been my least favorite. This particular GS is a mighty fine example. The ergonomics are a bit of a mess putting switchgear behind drop-down panels bugs me , the build quality is way below Lexus standards, and it's cramped in there.

    On the road, the ride is a bit too harsh for my tastes, and over even slightly nasty potholes, you'll get some suspension crashing. The steering reacts slowly to my inputs. I like midsize luxury sedans. No, this is the runt in the Lexus litter far as I'm concerned. There are a lot of cars I'd spend 60 grand on before this. To paraphrase Dan Aykroyd: What, did Wessy not have his oatmeal this morning?

    Not only does it have power, delivered smoothly and efficiently from its nearly hp V8 to the road, it does it with more verve and passion than many Lexus models or nearest competitors have in recent memory.

    What are you kvetching about the switchgear? It's plain and simple to use. Perhaps what you don't like is the extremely comfortable driver's seat that coddles and caresses you when firing through a corner or driving over potholes?

    I don't know why you wouldn't like the seats; they are on par with the best in the business, and I include Audi, Mercedes and Volvo among that cadre of comfort cruisers. You complain that it's noisy? Wasn't it yesterday you were using that tried and trite expression to call it a sensory deprivation chamber?

    No, that wasn't me, but with the way your memory has been going lately, I'll let that slide purely out of sympathy. That is so five minutes ago, yet now you don't like that you can actually hear the car. Car news, reviews, motorsports, auto shows and stunning photography delivered right to your mailbox.
