1998 Lexus LS 400 4dr Sedan

Review

If you want to test the side restraints of bucket seats, want a hard solid ride, with plenty of conrtol, and want to throw your passengers around, buy a BMW or a Mercedes. If you want an economy Lexus, buy an Infinity. If you total road stability with an exceptionally smooth ride, buy a Lexus sedan. We test drove the four above mentioned flagship models when they were three years old, and bought the Lexus. It's not very quick off the line, but when it gets rolling, it flies. It doesn't corner as rigidly as a BMW or Mercedes, but it handles (especially changing gears) much smoother. The seats are by far more comfortable. Long drives are effortless.

Favorite Features

These cars are truly maintenance free, total luxury, so smooth to drive.

Suggested Improvements

The one thing I think Lexus could improve is the accelerator. It is attached to the floor board, and takes some getting used to. Starts can be a little faster that you intend depending on the size of your foot and where it is placed on the floor.
