LEXUS GS350???

Drove one around thursday night and friday. It's ok but pales compared to a BMW.

Lexus's are nice but just glorified toyotas IMO. Not bashing just saying.

ill never own a bmw, ive had many family members own them, theyve all been the worst reliable cars theyve owned. id go domestic before i bought a beemer.
Audi is awesome though, but i dont wanna spend 70k for a car comparable to the lexus for 25,000 cheaper.

Audi = junk imo, glorified VW's that are already overpriced

Lexus used to be toyota;s but over the yrs, are entirely their own cars.

the only cars, camry = ES350
and the SUVs are carry overs. but most lexus are RWD, toyotas = FWD.

Stick with the Lexus FTMfW!!

Had the GX-470 SUV, I have owned a lot of vehicles, but that one there was the sweetest ride, to this day that I have owned!

Lexus service Dept. mechanics get bored, with nothing to do!!
(swing by a Dodge service Dept. )
