The 2020 Lexus GS-F isn't great -- but it could be, if you buy it in a few years. Today I'm reviewing the GS-F, and I'm going to show you why it's not so great, and why you'll want to wait to buy one. I'm also showing you all the quirks and features of the GS-F, and I'm going to drive the GS-F to show you what the Lexus GS-F is like on the road.

  • It’s not decent... that is just such a inappropriate use of wording .... for a car like this ...a car doesn’t need to have twin turbo to be super

  • The common problem of all Lexuses is well shown by this video as Doug is tall: when youre 190cm or more, youre gonna drive it with your head put in a gate of a sunroof. Very luxorious and comfortable 😆

  • That’s funny no smoking signs on the ashtrays. Thanks Doug for helping valuable my 2015 Infiniti Q70L purchase only 47K miles, pretty comparably equipped except for the ?8 but trades the V8 for AWD AND I got the long wheelbase version so about six inches more legroom for rear passengers. Same luxury equipment and possibly more and about 1/4 of the price of a GS-F. To be honest I was looking at a regular GS V6 on My way to the Q70L but couldn’t find a comparably equipped GS for anywhere close to the Q70L adjusted for equipment market and condition. Maybe in a few years the 2020 will be selling cheaper as used. Your not the only one saying that the Toyota/Lexus 8 speed automatic transmissions are weak. The 8 Speed automatic in the Kia Stinger gets good reviews though. Wondering if the KIA model is the ZF which can make European competitors expensive but the ZF works pretty good.

  • Love this G$-F! One helluva a ride, comfort and sporty. I wouldn't buy new, never been a new car enthusiast but a proper used one. If you have the funds for depreciation than go for it. 🙃

  • 7:39 it's all in the exhaust, that goes for any V8. While there are certainly differences in sound regarding valves, under-/overquare engines, engine mapping, can get a fucking hell of a sound out of any big naturally aspirated V8, doesn't matter which brand. Just found these, easily the best sounding exhausts for Lexus F cars imo: Exhibit I: And those are deep bass true dual no crossover exhausts with mufflers, not that raspy x-pipe straight pipe bullshit.

  • depends how you look at it, it wouldnt bother me that its slower than the rivals because its not exactly slow is it, lexus build engines to last so they dont over tune them and look how beautifully its built, lexus still build a car that lasts and to me that says more to me than zero to 60 times

  • Doug, this is not a good used car. Yes, it's a reliable Lexus, however, the whole point of owning a Lexus is to keep it, not lease it. A high-mileage used car is a high-mileage used car, meaning there will still be some maintenance. Therefore, you can't buy it used with less than say, 30k miles on it. That means you have to spend alotta money on brakes, toe-rods, and other assorted suspension parts to maintain this freeway hotrod, which will likely have been abused by the previous owners. 😕 Also, a good luxury used car is about $35k, meaning the high-mileage vehicles you showcased are overpriced. Just saying. 😁

  • You are so negative about the Lexus. Simply, don't do the reviews if you don't like those cars. New IS 350 F-sport is bad as well. Hell, no. It is just for petrolheads loving great technology. Not some BMWs and Audi's breaking all the time.

  • Majority of the comments seem opposite to your review Doug, that is a beautiful car hands down, tons of power and that exhaust note is awesome 😎 I would own this now as opposed to the equivalent bmw or Mercedes as i have owned 3 bmw’s as they spent as much time at the mechanics as they did at home ! Frustrating and expensive, Japanese = reliability , that is a cool car 👍

  • It seems like this car is going to suffer from the same performance 'issues' as my GS350. Yeah, 306HP is great, but at over 6,000 RPM?! The lower end and mid range just stink. What good is power if it's not wide enough in the RPM range?

  • I have a 16 GS-F that I bought new. I love it and get lots of compliments from strangers. It’s quick enough for me and the interior is beautiful. I bought it mainly because of Toyota’s reliability. I also have a 2002 Sequoia with 116k miles on it and it’s running strong. I traded my 2006 BMW 530i in for my GS-F. Started having issues with that thing.

  • Errrm, correction at 0:40 onwards ... LEXUS VEHICLES ARE NEVER MADE TO COMPETE AGAINST THE GERMAN COUNTERPARTS. The cars may be of similar specs and physical sizes but competition does not what drives Lexus’s design philosophy. QUALITY, RELIABILITY, GOOD OWNERSHIP EXPERIENCE (that’s LEXUS). I have just replaced my 2007 GS450h with a new GS450h. The previous car covered 229,000 miles on the original engine and transmission. THATS SOLID

  • Gosh people are so emotional in the comments regarding this video. Doug did say this car is great used for around 40k to 50k, he just didn't think its worth for 90k... And it terms of features this Lexus is decades behind the BMW and Merc which is also undeniably true. The only good thing about a Lexus is that it's reliable and lasts longer but that benefit mainly applies if you plan to keep the car a long long time or are buying it used, which Doug said it's a good idea to. People don't understand but true BMW and Merc owners don't buy their cars used second hand trash 🙄 they buy it new from the dealer with warranty and it will last perfectly for about 100k miles atleast which is more than enough for the guy who bought it new. This means that a 50k Brand-new Merc is 1000 times better for the new/first owner than this Lexus. The only people butthurt about BMW and Merc are the guys who can't afford it new and choose to buy it second hand cheap and in bad condition and then complain about how unreliable it is lol
