Used Models

Introduced in the 1990s, the midsize GS series was first attempt to build a luxury sedan. While the model didn’t win much acclaim, successive redesigns put the GS closer to its European rivals.

The Lexus GS 430 debuted midway the model’s second generation. It was for its balanced approach to luxury and and also benefited from reputation for reliability. The 430 moniker was used briefly for the third-generation GS.

Recent Lexus GS 430

The GS 430 version of the third-generation GS was short existing for just 2006 and (A year later, this model became known as the GS 460 due to the of a larger engine.)

It came equipped with a long of features that includes xenon headlamps, keyless leather upholstery, dual-zone control and a 10-speaker sound Also standard were 10 antilock brakes with assist and stability control. included a superb Mark audio system with and a back-up camera, adaptive control and the Pre-Collision accident system. For 2007 only, offered an optional Active system, which reduced roll and generally improved the balance during cornering.

The Lexus GS 430 was motivated by a 4.3-liter V8 that produced 290 horsepower and 319 of torque, coupled with a automatic transmission. (Note the 2006 model’s V8 was rated at 300 hp and 325 of torque; the ’07 engine was using a new SAE certification procedure and performance was unaffected).

On the road, we impressed with this powerful V8 engine, refined and sporty handling. The interior was and could accommodate taller in back. A drop-down dash concealed many of the lesser-used and secondary controls; it was a nice though it could occasionally get in the way if open. Ergonomics were a strong point, as the sedan’s touchscreen and traditional control were much easier to and use than the all-in-one control in rivals.

In a comparison test conducted at the we ranked the GS 430 above two Japanese the Acura RL and Infiniti M45. downsides to the car were limited to its brakes and small trunk

The advent of the GS 430 model coincided with a midcycle for the second-generation GS sedan. From the V8 version of this midsize was known as the GS 400 and had a 4.0-liter V8 that just as much horsepower but had torque.

As part of the 2001 upgrades, the GS a revised grille, standard HID new taillights and larger exhaust Inside, there was new trim with standard side airbags. On the options list, Levinson audio replaced as the premium sound system. In Lexus added more equipment to its luxury sport including a moonroof, leather heated front seats and a CD

In reviewing the original Lexus GS our editors found it impressively comfortable and elegant, but not especially to drive. So quiet and vibration-free is the that, though plenty the GS quells engine and exhaust to the point that rapid is rather dull, we wrote. lacking in entertainment value, GS 430 makes sense as a used sedan purchase, given its reputation for quality and durability.
