Best Luxury Car
By George on
2008 Lexus LS 460 L 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 8A)
This is my sixth Lexus vehicle and the best of all with the Executive Package. It is a solidly well built and quiet vehicle with absolute comfort and interior design, especially in the rear compartment which almost resembles the cabin of a private jet. Despite its 4300 lb weight, I get about 20 mpg around town and 30 mpg highway, depending upon traffic conditions. Its power is impressive as well as its 8 speed transmission which is seamlessly smooth. One minor drawback is the roughness of downshifting at 30 mph. Handling is good for the most part, except for some slight pitching on turns which is to be expected due to its size. Overall this car has everything one could ever want.

Navigation system should be refined to interpret commands better. While price is lower than other comparable imports, it is still higher than it should be. Rear trunk space should be increased even if rear A/C must be eliminated. Wheel design should be improved to match status of vehicle.
