Hello. Just bought my new used Lexus

Recommended Posts

Saying hello. Have read alot on these forums before deciding to get away from my saab that I love and bought a 2002 lexus gs300 with 63k miles on it. Engine and inside look great. Leather and everything inside is pure luxury and brand new. Love that. I do have to do something to the outside and would like some more pep behind this car. My 2007 v6 saab was a 2.8 turbo so this 3.0 has some powere but missing that kick and the looks are not as sporty even though it is a sports edition as my saab was.  With the low miles and seeing these cars on craigslist with 200 to 300k miles on them I hoped I have years left on this car but need some ideas on how to sport it up in and out?  Seems to have minor issues. Noise with the brakes when slow stops so fixing all the abs sensors and shakes like crap at 60mph but pretty certain just new rims tires and correct balancing will fix that. So hello. And any suggestions would be awesome.

Hi Michael and welcome to the LOC, nice to hear you got a Lexus.  Tires will certainly make a car shake so if you're planning to replace them, a good place to start. It might be a good idea to go all through the brakes as these typically have fairly good brakes. My truck was doing the same thing and new rotors, calipers and carbon fibre pads along with a good cleaning did the trick. Trucks brakes almost as good as my IS does now.

 

Enjoy that Lex.
