What are customers saying about the Lexus GS Series in Dubai, UAE
Ahmed - Import Lexus GS430, fantastic cars. Looks amazing especially in its current generation and interior options are just right. No shortage of luxury inside and it’s got a powerful V8. Pros: Options, Style and engine. Cons: No all wheel drive option to buy in GCC spec.
Callum - I bought a second hand Lexus GS350 F Sport a few months ago and at first I was not entirely taken by the cars, but after a few weeks I can’t believe I nearly bought an Audi. The Lexus is not only light on fuel even with a V6, but it also looks good and has incredible handling. Was going to get one new, however with full options is pricey. Highly recommend anyone to buy a GS sedan. Pros: Fuel efficiency, power and handling. Cons: High price with options.
Kyle - I couldn’t leave my pre-owned Lexus GS300 in America I just had to export it to Dubai when I moved here. Perfect car for daily driving fits right in here in the UAE as there are a lot of them here and for its age, the options are top notch. Pros: Specs, Parts are easily available and engine. Cons: Style is a bit bland.
