I must confess that I was a HUGE Lexus fan and have owned the LS 400 and GS 400. Unfortunately I totaled my GS and we didn't want a car note, and couldn't find another GS that matched our price point. So, my husband bought the '98 Q for me and told me that I would not be disappointed. Well, how sweet it is! What a beautiful ride and it moves quickly when I need it to. A whole lot of power and luxury for very little cost. It is definitely an under rated vehicle. After owning Lexus V8s, this Q can role just as hard, if not harder! Oh and I forgot to mentioned that it currently has 138,000 miles on it.
The acceleration, the silky ride and overall comfort.
Minimize the wind noise. The moonroof is nice, but I miss not having a sunroof.
