Review

After my 250k miles 1990 LS400 got trashed in a hail storm, I had to find a suitable replacement. After extensive research the 1998-2000 LS400 models fit the bill-40 more hp(290), 5 speed transmission, VSC and V8vvti engine. I bought online a one-owner, dealer-serviced, full records 1998 in mint condition that sold new for $59k. My test drive was the 1400 mile effortless drive back to Denver. Got 30mpg hwy doing 80mph with A/C on. The car absolutely looks and performs as new. The service history consists only of factory-recommended maintenance; nothing ever broke. A full dealer inspection after my trip revealed no issues. Spectacular vehicle for one-tenth cost new.

Best Features

Quiet ride, sound system, breath-taking acceleration (0-60 in 6.2), high mpg (21/30), high quality of paint and interior, cavernous glove box, in-dash CD changer, integrated key/remote, low maintenance cost, size of moonroof, dateless style, visibility

Worst Features

Bigger rear view mirrors, trunk pass-through, aviation-style reading lights, slicker-looking trip computer, louder turn-signal blinker, owner-replaceable headlamp bulbs, more accurate climate control (my Highlander is better), more effective fog lights
