What do you think of the GS 350? Anyone have one? I'm looking at a 2015 F Sport with 17000 miles. $30k. Fell into some money and the seats in the Camry are not so comfortable after an hour in the saddle. RWD.

Is the Acura RL worth a look in FWD?

I really like them and my preference would be for RWD. I would have figured the price to be higher than that but it seems to the going rate. Prob lower price because of the suv craze. I prefer them in lighter colors as they seem to age better as far as paint work goes.

The newer RL's are all wheel drive and to be avoided.

My mother has a 2013 GS350 AWD and it's an absolutely amazing car. It's fun to drive as a Grand Touring car, plenty fast for what it is. Considering replacing Lauren's ES with a new or certified used GS.

I had a 2017 Lexus GS350 F-Sport. Unfortunately Toyota Motor Company had to buy the car back because there was an issue with my transmission. I would literally step on the accelerator and the car would do nothing for 3 seconds or so. They tried to fix it many times but nothing worked. So I had to lemon law it. Also a side note that car had so much creaking inside the cabin that it drove me nutty. An old man with arthritis has less creaking! I had all of 5000 plus miles on it before they bought the car back. This is probably an isolated incidence though as not any person on clublexus had this happen to them.

I now have a 2016 Acura RLX and absolutely love this car. Transmission shifts smooth(oh the irony) and no creaking! If you're thinking about buying the current generation RLX don't buy the P-AWS version. Lots of negative posts on acurazine about the P-AWS car and lousy suspension.

I just bought a 2013 GS350 F Sport from Putnam Lexus in Redwood City, CA (Silicon Valley). Just came in on trade...
58K miles, $22,300 including Lexus Certification, 2 years bumper-to-bumper warranty, unlimited mileage, including services.
We got a new 450h from them in Feb...

Drive the car. Bring your checkbook.
The only advice I can offer is, buy from a Lexus Dealer. They have the best cars and the certification is big.
They will work with you...

The GS, especially the F Sport, is a great car, perhaps the most reliable Lexus and that is saying something.
The F Sports are loaded.

I think the only Lexus products I'd avoid are the lower end IS series.
The newer RWD IS300's in particular are turbo'd 2.0 engines no-no

Leo, I picked up the 2013 F Sport on Friday; we drove it from Los Gatos to Petaluma yesterday (Saturday).
This car is fantastic.

I would price new Lexus models at invoice and possible rebates before deciding to buy used. Take a look, may be worthwhile. I want a Lexus, a LFA. Too bad they are 300k+ and I dont fall into the category of having a 300k car. I'd buy a used LFA since thats all there is basically. Good luck, and good for you getting a sweet Lexus.
