I wasn't really looking at the LS400
when searching for another used car
after a major car accident where my 97
Camry was crushed. But after one test
drive, I knew the LS400 was it. Being
only 29 years old, my wife still chides
me that I'm driving an 'old man' car.
But the fact of the matter is, the
LS400 is a feature rich luxury machine
that was affordable for me and at the
same time offered some prestige with a
long list of standard features. I hope
to drive this car up to 250K miles and
then i'll be another Lexus... why pay
for a Benz when you get all that luxury
and comfort in a Lexus for half the
The Coach leather is exceptional, the
wood grain is also quite nice. My
favorite aspect of this car is the
total ISOLATION from the road.
The stereo on *any* car these days
should be able to play MP3s, but since
my Lexus is a 1997 I can't fault it. A
compass would be nice. The trunk is
smaller than my old 97 Camry which was
a surprise but it's still adequate.
Overall, these are minor things-- it's
an excellent car.
