1999 Lexus LS 400 4dr Sedan

Review

This is my second LS-400. Prior car was a '92 model. '98-00 version has many improvements over earlier models. VVTi, 5-speed trans, far more European 'feel' overall. Nakamichi audio is only bested by newer Mark Levinson system. Seats are quite firm but offer excellent support. Onboard trip computer is fun to toy with. Excellent fuel economy for a 3900-lb. vehicle, ranging as high as 33mpg on straight highway runs. Averaging 23 overall (mostly city). Only use genuine Toyota T-IV fluid when servicing the trans! Keep the oil clean and the 1UZ-FE engine should last forever. Styling has aged very gracefully. Still attracts attention even though 10 years old. HID headlamps excel. Pleased overall.

Favorite Features

Toyota reliability. With a bit of research one will find many mechanical components are shared with other Toyota vehicles and don't require paying the ridiculous Lexus surcharge on parts. Nakamichi stereo. HID lamps. Onboard computer. Great fuel economy. Comfort. Safety. Classic styling.

Suggested Improvements

Lower servicing costs would be nice, but as they say: "if you can afford the car..."
