Default Pick up a 99 GS300

Picked up a gs300 for $1800 with only 160k miles. The car runs great, had it on a lift last weekend and there is no evidence of accidents and the suspension is still in great shape. Now the bad no AC the compressor is done, ordered a kit and im look forward to swapping that expansion valve lol! The paints a little faded, driver seat done along with arm rest. After a good 800 miles the radiator started to leak today, already ordered a replacement. Ive driven this car for a week and I absolutely love it

Fun car too drive around, be sure to complete all the maintenance items to avoid issues down the road.

Well hopefully the rest goes as easy as the radiator, it was a piece of cake. So much room in the engine bay

You got a great deal! My brother-in-law picked up a one-owner '98 GS300 with 282k for $3,000 a few months ago. I asked him the other day how many miles he had and he said 288,000 now, with no issues whatsoever. If something happened to my GS tomorrow I would go on AutoTrader and find another one. These are really great cars that stand the test of time.

lol, its been trying already. Had to side line the GS. After the radiator was replaces i drove it for a couple days and then the dreaded misfire started and the coolant return line from the heater core started leaking.

already fixed the leak, today im picking up the plugs and wires already got new coils. Fingers crossed. Then this weekend ill tackle the A/c
