All i have to say

Vehicle: 1997 Lexus LS 400 4dr Sedan

This car is absolutely amazing. I have owned it since 2003 and the most major problem we ever had was replacing the fuel pump ($350). We got it with 25k miles and now it has 125k. We also have a 2010 TL and I still love driving my classic around. The LS is sooo smooth and so comfortable that I havent drove many like it. She still runs like a beast and I hope she runs for years to come. Really a great and reliable car. Thanks Lexus!!!

Well built car, never broken

Purchased car in January of 2011 for $3800. It is very reliable. If you don't want to worry about being stranded or expensive repairs, this car is for you. You must be ready to pay for premium fuel but other than that it is a great car. Better to buy used than new and better to buy used from a rich person than from a poor person. Good luck.

Very happy lady

Door to ashtray will not open. No amount of pushing , pulling or cajoling will open it. Am I stupid or what? Is it an electrical thing or just a pressure thing? Help! Thankyou....

LS 400 gen I - 1990, 1991, 1992...

The LS 400 and LX 450 were #1 in their respective categories, while the SC 300/400 and ES 300 were in the top three....
