2006 Lexus GS

Trim: GS 300 AWD

Smooth Operator
Ironically, all of the things that should go wrong on a car like this have not, but there have been tons of random odds and ends that have failed. Over the past 2 years, the car has racked up nearly $6000 in both scheduled maintenance and unexpected repairs. However, I feel that my car is an anomaly from the quality and reliability people come to expect from Lexus.

Pros:
- Car is unbelievably smooth and quiet
- Capable, extremely reliable engine
- Well-appointed interior
- Plenty of electronic gadgets & gizmos (all of which work as intended to boot)

Cons:
- Averages 11-12L/100k in the city
- Squeaky dashboard (known issue for all 3GS models)
- Spotty reliability on obscure parts of car: Steering ECU failed, had to replace 3/4 wheel hub assemblies, AFS sensor needed to be replaced
- Lacks personality

Overall, the car has been flawless mechanically (engine + drivetrain) and the interior electronics are still all going strong. However, some of the smaller, less-recognized parts of the car leave much to be desired in terms of reliability.

Overall, it's been a good car, but not great. I could overlook the flaws if the car had more personality.

2007 Lexus RX

Trim: RX 400H

Smooth Ride, Quiet Inside and Out and Generally Great!
This is a vehicle I have had the pleasure of driving many times, as it belongs to my father. The comfort level is fantastic, due to the cushy leather seats, seat warmers and ample legroom. I like the look of the car from the outside, it's got sleek lines and doesn't look like just another toaster on wheels, as many vehicles in the CUV/SUV categories do. Good fuel economy due to the hybrid engine and it also makes for a supremely quiet running vehicle. My only beef is with the dashboard interface, the touch controls are not responsive enough (I think the iPhone has spoiled us all in that regard), and the UI could be improved upon. Granted, this is a 2007 model, designed and produced before the iPhone existed, so I am sure later models have improved on the interface.
