Year/Model: 2005 GS3
Mileage: 170xxx
How long have you owned it: 1.5years

Service:
1.) Ball-joints
2.) Tie rods
3.) Upper control arms(adjustable camber ones because of an accident)
4.) Alternator
5.) All 4 door lock actuators
6.) Radiator exploded
7.) Timing belt at 120k
8.) Main seals, cam seals, vale cover, new cam gear, basically every seal was replaced(I think the previous owner overheated it)
9.) Cats got clogged...
10.) And your normal maintenance: Plugs, transmission fluid, breaks, tires, etc

Story: I bought the car for $500 off someone in the military who was being transferred to Japan, it was in an accident. The passenger side looked like it hit a guard rail, there was damage on the passenger side rear quarter panel and on the door and A pillar. It took me about a year and a half just to do the Bondo work my self while managing school and what not, it came out decent, it definitely isnt as good looking as a shop but good for what I spent! Overall I have about 2500 into the car as I did all the work my self and bought from rock auto.

See the first page of my build thread for those pics. It's just a junction produce replica.

253,000. Other than tune ups, oil changes, regular maintenance and suspension work I haven't had to do anything to it. Getting it's third timing belt along with full tune up next week.

My Lexi 2000 GS 300 has 222,000 miles, needs suspension work. Best car I ever owned. I love it. Riding strong and very reliable. I wouldn't change my GS for anything else. 😉

That statement doesn’t negate the FACT that your set up is dumpster juice, garbage, horrible, etc. I mean really, who’s using hid halogen kits in 2019 when you could do retrofits for little to nothing now? You can’t even look at your garbage China kit photo without squinting your eyes....but hey you “look” cool huh? This is my last response...no one on this site agrees with your cheap set up...I feel badly for your GS.

Dude. Shut up!!! Both of you are losers, haters. Theres plenty of GS out there like mines using halogen HIDs. Look it up. You guys are garbage and talk garbage out your mouth. If you dont like the pic or my lights keep it to yourself.

My 94 Cadillac Fleetwood made it to 250k EASILY. My 90 Aerostar Van made it to 275k (given to us, already on 3rd trans.... but engine was solid and strong, body was GONE), my 91 Pontiac Bonneville went 270k before we gave it away, again, easily, not a single major problem, original trans and engine and drive axles. Never even popped a valve cover.
285k on my 99 GS400 I'm the original owner still strong.. but the suspension may be the end of her..
