It comes with a long list of standard amenities
A 7-inch dashboard screen can work with the optional navigation system
the touch screen control system... governs too many functions, muddling what should be simple adjustments
The 2008 Lexus GS 350 and 2008 Lexus GS 460 have features aplenty--including a few they could do without.
Cars.com reports "a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel is standard" on the 2008 Lexus GS 460, but it's by far not the only standard feature. Edmunds notes that the 2008 Lexus GS "comes with a long list of standard amenities that include 18-inch wheels, adaptive HID headlights, automatic dual-zone climate control, 10-way power front seats with heating and ventilation, a sunroof, keyless ignition and a 10-speaker premium audio system."
The one problem, for which TheCarConnection.com took a point off what might otherwise have been a perfect score for the 2008 Lexus GS, was the touchscreen control system. ConsumerGuide feels that it "governs too many functions, muddling what should be simple adjustments."
Optional equipment on the 2008 Lexus GS 350 and 2008 Lexus GS 460 includes a "7-inch dashboard screen, [which] can work with the optional navigation system," according to Cars.com. Audiophiles will be glad to know that a Mark Levinson "surround-sound system with 14 speakers is optional" as well. Additional 2008 Lexus GS options, according to Edmunds, "include satellite radio, parking assist, rain-sensing wipers [and the] the Active Power Stabilizer suspension system."
The 2008 Lexus GS already has standard features by the ream, but the touchscreen system is a bit of overkill.
