Review

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my LS400, but being the critic that I am...I was expecting even more perfection. Still the best car I've driven, though, when it comes to peace and serenity. Stereo system is good but not as heart thumping as I was expecting. My Jeep GC 5.9 Limited with only an amped 12" sealed sub sounded better. Transmission is awfully jumpy at times. Slow speed transitions can result in head snapping if not gentle with gas pedal. The car is SOO quiet, that I am able to hear every little thing. I have a small rattle in the door when driving over bumpy roads...small vibration/rattle in the sunroof also. That's it.

Favorite Features

Dashboard, power/acceleration, serenity.

Suggested Improvements

Throttle/Transmission interaction during very slow speed transitions.
