I bought a 96 LS400 white/tan at 156k miles and I did have to put about $4000 into it for new a/c, timing belt, water pump, front end, all fluids & filters, complete tune up. No paper work was purchased with the car, so I took a gamble. After the expenses, I put a set of LS430 wheels on it and WOW much better looking. It's been the best car ever. We drove it more than my wife's 04 ES330, but sadly it was totaled out and we are now looking for a 98-00 LS400. Love these cars!
The ride!! Smoooooth. I did get 20/26 mpg. Looks like a Mercedes S500 and costs A LOT less! Drove it to FL from MS and almost fell asleep it's so smooth!
The tilt wheel is kinda strange, the cost of keep up, but you want the best, you pay for the best.
