While past versions of the GS midsized luxury sedan struggled to reconcile the brand's trademark isolating plushness with the fun-to-drive verve found in competing class leaders, this iteration of the GS pulls it off. Engaging to drive, yet offering a supple ride, it's roughly on the same page as its German competition. The GS 350 has a punchy V6 powertrain and is linked to a smooth transmission.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"My Lexus GS is the F sport model. It is designed for the drive enthusiast. The handling is very tight in the "sport" mode, which I use all of the time. The gearing is lower and the acceleration is exhilarating."

Anonymous, PA (2014 Lexus GS)

"For the price, 60k, I think there should be more power. A lot of cheaper sedans offer more. Handling is top notch and sport plus mode really makes it engaging. It handles much better than the 5 series or E class, as I drove both."

Anonymous, MI (2014 Lexus GS)

"Handles wells, seats need to be more comfortable on long trips (8 - 12 hours). Navigation and voice system should have updates after six months and continue to be updated for years."

Anonymous, AZ (2014 Lexus GS)

"Handles and accelerates like a sports car"

Anonymous, NY (2014 Lexus GS)

"Has the power that I wanted. Great acceleration."

JANE S., TX (2014 Lexus GS)

""F" option. Very responsive auto."

Anonymous, FL (2014 Lexus GS)

"Although replaced when it recalled, the electronic throttle control, in contrast to early years mechanical ones, it way too sensitive. It remains as a major irritant to driving pleasure."

GARY B., VA (2014 Lexus GS)

"This vehicle should have had the option of a V8 Six cylinder is barely OK"

BUD R., WA (2014 Lexus GS)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"I purchased this car for my wife. Her top criteria for a new car was very comfortable seats. This Lexus met that criteria. She is very pleased with the climate control, heated seats and heated steering wheel."

BRUCE B., NV (2014 Lexus GS)

"We have the F Sport variant, and it has a clunky, noisy suspension, in which the stiffness is mere pretense toward an inauthentic "sportiness"."

GREGG F., NY (2014 Lexus GS)

"I love that the driver seat is adjustable 16 ways. The adjustable side bolsters really hold me in. Very sporty. But the seat bottom has no lateral springs, it's just a layer of foam on a steel pan. I have sciatica and the seat becomes uncomfortable after 2 hours. My last car, a '14 Accord Touring Hybrid was more comfortable on long trips."

DAN W., OH (2014 Lexus GS)

"I have not had a luxury vehicle with better seats than this Lexus. The F sport seat adjustments can be fine tuned for my exact comfort. I particularly like the bolsters for holding my body in tight curves."

Anonymous, PA (2014 Lexus GS)

"just rides great and relibility"

C E., NC (2014 Lexus GS)

Value

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"Excellence in: quality, fit and finish details, overall design, materials, performance and value."

PEDRO V., FL (2014 Lexus GS)

Styling

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"The 2014 GS has the least objectionable front end of all the Lexus sedans I've seen."

JAMES J., NE (2014 Lexus GS)

"I love the inside styling. I do not like the outside styling. Even though it is the sport model, the look is too common. It looks like a lot of other makes. I get it mixed up frequently."

Anonymous, TX (2014 Lexus GS)

"Good"

Anonymous, CA (2014 Lexus GS)

"nothing"

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
