Hi all I'm looking to purchase a lexus gs 2005 onwards. I have read a few reports about very heavy oil consumption (1l per 1000km). Some sources say this is normal others have required pistion ring replacement, although this seems to be in the USA and Australia. I have had few 3.0 Lexus before and have never needed to top up the oil between services. Also I understand that the engine uses a chain rather than a belt, are these maintenance free? Am I over thinking or would I be better off searching for a 430? I can't go for a 450h as boot is far too small. Thanks in advance
