This is close. The Lexus has 300 horsepower, the Acura 270. Both are very reliable. The Acura has a much nicer interior, but the Lexus is RWD (Acura FWD). If you live in an area that gets snow, this would be a pro as opposed to a con. Being newer, the TL is also quite a bit more modern looking.I'd go with the TL, but the GS400 is a great car too.

I agree with he last answer. The GS is a V8, while the TL has a V6 but the TL is pretty close in performance and it's newer. They ar both great cars but I have to give it to the TL.

I'd say the TL.the '04 TL is the current TL. the '00 GS is an older body style that has since been restyled. because of this reason I would give it to the TLbut if the cars were the same year then I'd give it to the GS

Lexus. The Acura looks better but its FWD. Come on its supposed to be luxury. Acura needs to get with the times. You don't spend that kind of money to get a FWD car.

Easy. The GS400 by A LANDSLIDE!!! That car is incredible in every way. It handle's ALOT better then the TL, it's rwd, has more power, engine and the drivetrain in general is way smoother and will last you 3-4 times longer then your typical honda/acura transmissions which need replacement every few years if you actually drive the car and not go easy on it like some noobs do it. There is no question in my mind, the GS was a $60k car for a reason, the TL is a $30k car. the build quality on the Lex is far superior too, plus you have a choice of like 6 engines that you can swap including the whole supra TT drivetrain which can be built to handle over 1000whp reliably. Acura can't touch that and doesnt even come close. The 4.0L in the GS is toyotas best motor, theres a few of em running with over 500k miles and a few with over a million and most of them are on the original powerplant.

Acura TL is definately more sporty and it is much more fun to drive.The cars are equal in reliability.Acura is made by Honda.Lexus is made by Toyota.The GS400 has more power and it is a more quiet car with a smoother ride, but that makes it boring to drive.The Acura is newer and better looking.I have driven both cars.
