I really like just about everything about the car. The body is a great size which make it easier for me to maneuver. I love the ability to turn on VCS for a safer ride in the rain. The factory radio is great quality and even though I cannot read the display as easily as I should be able to, the sound quality is top notch. One of the things I really love is the ability to save my settings and use it to recall my presets at any time! This is perfect if you share the car with someone else who needs to adjust seat, mirror and steering wheel positions when they drive. I don't like the cost of the parts or the amount of time maintenance and repairs take but some of the repairs are easy to do by yourself and can save time and money. If I was asked how I feel about this car I would say ... (more)

Road trip to Georgia
Pros
My favorite features of this car are the VCS control, which allows you to have better steering control, the noise cancelling on the audio output is awesome and really does make a difference when you are driving down the highway. The settings where you can store your predefined mirror, seat and steering wheel positions is a lifesaver especially when you share a car with someone who needs to make adjustments. The ability to program your garage door opener so that you can open or close the garage from inside the car without the use of a third party remote control is awesome. Another great ... (more)
Cons
One thing I don't like about this car is the cost of parts and labor when it is time to fix something. I also really dislike the fact that sensors can go out and make it appear as if there are bigger issues than what really exists. The fact that the car uses a lot of gas is not cool either. When driving in the city, gas seems to go faster. If you don't keep the tires inflated the gas usage increases. Living in Florida it is not conducive to having leather seats.

1999 Lexus GS 300 - Good for transportation.

My vehicle that I currently use was my very first car that I got when I turned 18. It is a green Lexus GS300 with gold trim. I do not really like the aesthetic of the vehicle and if I had the money to change the color, I would. Also, there seem to be problems with the brakes as the screech every time I press the brakes. What I like about my car is that is reliable and does not have too many problems. Right now it has about 200,000 miles on it and I think I will keep it until it just breaks down. I am happy that it takes me from point A to point B and as long as no problems get in the way, I will stick with it.
Story
One fun memorable story was the day I first drove my car to school. I had just turned off my car and waited for a little while because I was early. It started getting hot so I turned on the car battery (not start the car) to turn on the A/C. So I'm sitting in my car for like 30 minutes and I go out to go to class. When I come back to my car, I was unable to start it. I did not know much about ... (more)
Pros
The main thing I like about this vehicle is that it is very spacious and the ride is very comfortable.
Cons
The top negative thing of this vehicle is the looks. It is a dark green color and it is very unappealing. I would be happier if it was more of a neutral color like black or gray.
