Lexus GS Reliability And Durability: Cons

2006 4dr Sedan 245-horsepower 3.0L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I am very disappointed inte reliability of this Lexus. I've always believed the hype about the excellent reliabiity of the Lexus brand. I have not had any major problems, but it seems there is always something coming up. It is the only car that has stranded me or my wife in the pst 10 years, and that wtih a pinhole in the radiator. The radiator is very cheaply made, easily damaged by road debris. This car has been to the shop more than any car I've owned in the last 10 years other than my 1980 Porsche 911 and it sate 10 years before I bought it. The list of issues includes no catastrophic problems but I am more than likly to get rid 0f it before something major does happen. Not sure if i bought a lemon of if the 2006, being a major upgrade year model is experiencing the pain of new model syndrome. full 2006 Lexus GS review
