Don't make the same mistake I did. The LS 460 is noisy. New drivers might not notice it but there should be no wind noise. I am in the process of having the two front side windows replaced. There is a significant problem with wind and road noise with this model. After one window was fixed which did correct the wind noise, of course there is now a noise in the door. Lexus needs to fix the windows. In addition this engine is more noisy than the ones in the past
Ride and Mark Levinson audio are great. Style is much better. Car is fast.
Parking guidance is useless. I agree with the other reviewer that it is almost fraud. The side view mirrors are small and have a large blind spot.
We have only had our LS for a few days, and already we love it. We are coming out of a SL500 and a 530xi. We have had a number of Mercedes and BMWs, but never before a Lexus. The car rides incredibly smoothly and has excellent power. The mileage is outstanding for the hp.
"Hold Brake", Smart Key, and the fit and finish.
The tire pressure monitor system is not well thought out, and the dealer had to "warn" us that in the winter we can expect to get aome false buzzers. Fix it or get rid of it.
I have owned a Lexus LS for the past 15 years and have recently purchased a new LS 460. This vehicle is in my opinion without a doubt the the best luxury car in the world for the price. This LS has every feature imaginable except the park itself feature. My LS is black and has chrome wheels that really sets it off. This LS looks, drives and rides like the dreamcar that it is!
Levinson package including navigation system, parking assist, bluetooth and other features that are too numerous to mention.
Vehicle should come from factory with chrome wheels as standard equipment instead of aluminum alloy wheels.
We have had many Benzs over the years, and we just got tired of all the mechanical problems and costs. We were ready for a car to rely upon, that was luxurious, comfortable and beautiful. We got it with the LS 460. The car is awesome. We considered BMW also, but I know we made the right choice. Until you live with the car, you cannot appreciate it.
The build quality, fit and finish, technology (Smart key, navigation system, the Mark Levinson audio system, electronic parking brake, are all awesome).

Exceptional quality again. As always, Lexus provides the smoothest, reasonable luxury car on the market. The LS 460L finally brings a sportier look than the previous 430s. The controls remain very intuitive and significantly easier to use than my previous BMW 760Li or Mercedes CL 55. If you want a lots of back seat legroom, quiet, quiet, smooth and reliable there is nothing better. And the cost remains relatively low.
Electronics are exceptional. The ride is the smoothest I've ever experienced.
For me, an engine with more torque and a good 6 speed automatic. I wonder if they could program the 8 speed to skip first gear in normal driving?
