The midsized GS is a quiet, polished, smooth-running luxury sedan.
The GS300's 3.0-liter Six and GS 430's 4.3-liter V8 are smooth, powerful, and linked to a superlative five-speed automatic transmission.
Though competent, these rear-drive cars lack the optimal ride-and-handling balance of competitors like the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
Handling is capable but unexceptional.
Braking capability is excellent.
