I just purchased this car about one week ago; it is the best car that I have owned during my 53 years of driving and I have driven just about all of them. I could not afford a new one; had to settle for a used one. It is in excellent shape for a 6 year old car. Heavy miles but in excellent condition. I can't decide which I like best: the design or the drive? It is a fabulous car and I am glad that I finally own one. It is a real thrill to put the pedal down and feel the surge of the powerful V8 after driving a V6 over the last 5 years.
The look and the ride; I just can't get over both of them. It is a heavy and smooth ride with plenty of power to spare.
This is a true touring sedan -- fast and smooth -- stylish -- reliable -- comfortable. This is my second LS 400,owned a 94 model and 99 model. It will be very hard to sell me on another make besides Lexus. If you want a sedan that does it all, this is your car. From 80 mph to 140 mph this car is amazing. The traditional sedan owners are totally unaware of the LEXUS !!!!!!
Smooth powerful engine, crusing speed????, nice sound system. Body style.
More seat adjustments, more trunk space, better cup holders.
Nothing wrong with this car.
Maintenence isnt frequent, but if it
hits, be prepared to break out the
check book. I have 75,000 miles on it
without a single serious problem. If
your looking for luxury, comfort,
speed, and value, this is your car. Get
the prestige, the resale, and the true
smoothness. Destroys BMW and Mercedes
in the way it drives. Best family
luxury car bar none.
Bought the car with 49,000 miles on it.
It has been an excellent car in every
way. This is my 3rd LS 400 and I plan
to buy another one when I sell this
one. Each one has been better than the
Almost everything about this car is
perfect. The best ride of any vehicle I
have ever been in, almost silent
inside, yet it grips the road like a
cat climbing a tree. Every detail has
been thought of by the Toyota engineers.
Interior feels luxurious to the point
of opulence. Lush walnut trim, plush
leather seats as comfortable as the
best chair in your house. Getting into
the car instantly relaxes you. Almost
unheard of even in a full-size car
nowdays: three adults can sit in the
rear, and the one in the middle is
Engine is as powerful as it is quiet.
How do they do that?
Unbelievably smooth ride, but it
doesn't float. How? Whisper quiet,
elegant and luxurious, yet
inconspicuous. Rocket engine.
Acceleration after a slowdown and
downshift confuses transmission.
Curiosuly, no autolock Base audio
system is not very good.
