I have owned every luxury car known to man. This is the best. This is the second LS that I have owned. It is dealer certified with 28,000 miles and was almost $20,000 less than a brand new one. You can't go wrong buying a certified car. I don't think that there is a better car made at any price -- including the Mercedes S model. You might find more features -- but not a better car.
Great ride, quality of material, quietness of engine, and great feel of safety due to the car feeling so sound and sturdy
Here is the "except". The standard radio is absoletely the worst that I have ever heard in a luxury car--sounds like it belongs in a cheap American economy car. I traded a 2004 Acura TL with XM Radio with an unbelievable great sound. I would "almost" trade back just for the radio.
