I bought my 95' LS400 4 months ago with
96K miles and this car runs much better
than any car I have ever owned. The
only problems I have had with it was a
defective radio antenna ($135). Also,
the top glove box that houses the CD
changer is coming apart ($150). Also,
a brake light bulb went out yesterday.
All in all, these are minor repairs for
a car that is nearly 8 years old w/
100K miles on it. Nothing else has
needed to be replaced. Gas mileage is
around 18 mpg. Acceleration is smooth
for 4.0L engine but not as fast as some
cars I have owned. The very smooth
ride makes up for it. I would
recommend this model/year Lexus to
The glove box housed CD changer (not in
the trunk like most other CD changers
in vehicles) is great. Also, the power
seats are incredible. These seats move
in so many different ways.
Maybe Lexus should make a 5.0 Liter V-8
engine rather than the 4.0 Liter. This
would give the car more power. I think
the new LS450 have a 4.5 Liter, which
may be better. Other than that, this
car has it all.
