Review

93 ls4 145k car is fun to drive when you can drive it it was the fuel relay, then the ecu,then the tps, then the radiator, then the rear main seal, then the water pump found myself either at the gas pump or under the hood. car is fast but i wouldnt recommend it i actually wouldnt drive it farther than 500 miles to afraid of it breaking down and leaving me stranded i have driven both f150 5.4 and chevy cavalier - 2000 miles round trip no problems and both got better mpg yes even the truck considering the price of supreme for the ls4 vs regular f150 in a twenty gallon tank it evens out dont do it unless your a mechanic with a endless supply of cheap supreme gasoline


Best Features

rides smooth fast looks nice very spacious


Worst Features

brakes dont stop the car the mpg sucks bad even for a v8 supreme gas only cops are always on the lookout got stopped 3 times in the old car for no reason

Review

It is now 2010, I've had this car for 11 years and have found it to be a wonderful car for a 17 year old car. I get compliments that the body style doesn't show that it's that old. The ride is still incredible with good tires. The comfort is superb. Reliability is excellent. In the years I have had it, there are a couple of known issues. One, is the dash electronics start turning off on cold days. This is caused by some degraded components (half dozen capacitors) in the dash PCB which can be replaced by folks who do this on ebay, or you can do it yourself(as I did). Took 4 hours total. Overall, this car has been very reliable at 200K miles for me. The engine/tranny is very strong.


Best Features

The ride is very quiet Reliability Looks Interior comfort


Worst Features

Review

This car is superb 1993 LS 400. It is now (age) sweet 16 and still is better than most new cars out there. I can't get rid of it because she performs flawlessly on a daily basis. I had the timing belt and water pump replaced.. that's it.


Best Features

Quality is tried and true--all material has held up excellent


Worst Features

Wish it was still made.

Review

Purchased this Lexus in September 2004, initially concerned about higher mileage, but after 3 1/2 years of superb performance and driving comfort, I plan to drive this exceptional vehicle until the wheels come off of one of us. Never had a better vehicle in my life, no major repairs, no cash outlay except for the Premium gas. Well worth it for what I've received in return, what a wonderful investment and dependable to the nth degree.


Best Features

Motor... 8 cylinder power, runs like a scalded dawg. Interior comfort while driving/riding. Body style: classic design period for Lexus. Paint still looks like factory fresh.


Worst Features

None to suggest. This car has all the luxury quality one could expect in every category.
