OK let's see if there are any problems with the 06 GS300.

    And we're going to add the GS 430 to the title.

    Not sure why you are looking so hard for trouble, but we'll see if this and your other discussion fly.

    I've got a potential problem. It's been hot lately, and I like to open all the windows on my approach to a 2006 Lexus GS300 AWD. I hit the door open button on the remote and HOLD it. All the windows and the moonroof open. (This is what is supposed to happen.)

    HOWEVER, only the DRIVER's WINDOW doesn't open.

    Very strange.


    I looked at Lexus Personalized Settings, and this isn't something you should be able to do.

    Window lock isn't set (not that this should matter), and driver's winodw works normally from inside.

    It's going back to the dealer to be fixed.

    Today my PS failed and I limped home without the power-just cranked it hard around the corners to the house. Had the car towed to the Dealor. No parts for the fix exist in this country so the entire mechanism for GS430-2006 PS being ordered from Japan. Told middle of next week at the earliest before parts installed. This is a four week old car with 1500 K. Anybody else had this problem? What is this stuff about the "Pursuit of Perfection"? This should not happen to a 60K car.Your comments please. Redspider has been bitten by really bid bug!

    What is this stuff about the "Pursuit of Perfection"? This should not happen to a 60K car.

    Pursuit is not the same as Arrival - no car is perfect. However hopefully the huge Premium markup on your Lexus kicks in now with "near" perfect customer service. Good luck.

    I have just purchased a 1999 Lexus GS300. The rear view mirror is too dark and it is difficult to see what is on the road behind me. No matter what buttons I push or pull, the mirror stays the same. Can some one help me. I do not as yet have a manual, so can not go that route.
  • I have a 1999 lexus gs300 and the instrument cluster went out. I found a cluster at a wrecking yard that is in perfect shape. My concern is that the new odomiter reads 15000 more miles than my car actually has. Will the computer pick this up and change the reading to the actual miles on the car?

    I own a 2000 Lexus GS300 and my wiper MIST SPRAY does not operate when I pull the wiper control to me to activate the mist and the wiper works fine. When I push in the side button for the water spray, that works okay and shoots 3 streams of water from each nozzle I would like my MIST SPRAY to work. Can anyone help with this and explain what could be the problem.

    Thanks, Dan...

    I have a manual for a 1998 GS 300 that I could send to you if you would like. It is the same generation car, so they are just about exact. Let me know via reply e-mail. I am guessing that you have tried the auto button right on the mirror. That will stop the rear view from auto adjusting when someone gets behind you with their high beams on.

    I do believe the MIST SPRAY function does NOT spray windshield washer fluid. The MIST SPRAY feature is when you only need to use the wipers once in awhile. Like if a car drives by and sprays some water on your car from going thru a puddle. In a case like that you can use the MIST SPRAY function to just swipe the windshield once.
  • When you are facing the driver's seat headrest, the override button is a little to the left of the headrest. You CANNOT SEE IT, but it is under the leather. Just try and feel for it. It took me a while to find it, but it is there and does work.

    I recently purchased a '99 GS 400 with 58K miles and was considering one or both of these mods and wondered if anyone had any experience with either? I would also be interested in any other comments or suggestions. Thanks.

    I have a 2000 GS300 that was recently serviced for 55,000 miles. The mechanic at the dealer told me that the lower ball joints needed to be replaced and I spent $550 for the replacement. I thought I bought a good quality car and it came as a surprise because the car is only 5 years old.Does anyone know if GS300 has problems with ball joints? Or I was ripped off by the dealer? -- Thanks.
  • maxhonda99maxhonda99 Posts: 1,289
    You should have taken the old ball joints that they replaced with you and then had them inspected by another shop. The GS300 does not have problems with ball joints. Ball joints do go bad, but typically not at 55K miles, Ball joints should last well past 100K miles.

    I own a 2000 GS300 and was wondering what bolts needs to be removed to take out the headlight assembly? I removed all the ones on the top are but it is still in there solid. Are there any behind the fender splash guard? Or other places. Is there a website to explain what needs to be removed to get the headlight assembly out? Need help. Any replies will be appreciated. Thanks... :surprise:

    I have a 1998 gs 300 with 90,00 miles. The accelerater has always been extremely sensitive.....difficult to start off without jolting the car. Has anyone else had this problem?
