2010 Lexus LS 460 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 8A)


Review

Easily the best car I've purchased. Easily. As other reviews have stated, this is reliable luxury for less! Keep in mind this is the Lexus flagship sedan, with MSRP's close to $80k when new. Because of that, Lexus has invested/added a LOT of features as "standard in this vehicle". I test drove a 7-series before this which had more features and a much livelier V8, however a horrendous ownership experience that would likely have come with it (high maintenance, high repair, horrific resale value) would have followed. The LS460 is by far the quietest, most comfortable vehicle I've ever owned. Whether it is cruising on the interstate or navigating through downtown traffic, this vehicle isolates you from the world, it actually makes commuting a pleasure! The terrific Mark Levinson surround sound system is worth the upgrade and tuned precisely for audiophile pleasure! The quality of the leather, the interior and the trims are all well thought out. It is a spectacular ride; test drive one and you'll see what I'm talking about! What to look out for? Control arms are an issue for 07-10 LS460's with repairs costing over $5k. This is a well documented issue, and was resolved in 2011. Also note with this vehicle, maintenance costs more (it takes 9 quarts of oil for an oil change). Other than that, there is a great network of supporting Lexus dealers to service this, though you can have it serviced at your Toyota garage for cheaper (same stuff, really). Again I can't say enough, best car I've ever owned. Sporty when you want it to be, serene and dreamy when you need it. Driving should be an experience, not a function, and this car fulfills that so well.

2010 Lexus LS 460 Sedan L 4dr Sedan AWD (4.6L 8cyl 8A)


Review

This is my third Lexus LS, following a 2001 and a 2004 LS 430. Honestly, the two earlier cars were much quieter, as if powered by a huge electric motor. The driver's seat was more comfortable and its cushion extended farther forward to support under my legs. (I am 6'3" tall.) Other than that, the 2010 is a much-improved car. The motor has direct injection at very high pressure and it idles like a diesel - very noisy, especially compared to the earlier two cars - but the horsepower and torque are much greater. The optional adjustments to the transmission and suspension change the character of the car, unlike in other premium cars. Reliability is a luxury in itself - this car never breaks.


Best Features

Horsepower and torque. All wheel drive with high suspension adjustment makes it a luxury SUV to get through deep snow or gravel roads with ease. Rear seat legroom is impressive to everyone who gets in the back seat. Heated steering wheel should be standard in all cars. Everything in and about this car always works - never a down moment in four years. Electric screens on rear side windows make other luxury sedans with manual screens seem cheap. The interior has 95,000 on it and looks brand new. With the traction control and stability control turned off (how did we drive before these systems were invented?), the transmission in "Power" and the suspension in "Sport," this car really hustles.


Worst Features

More horsepower comes with reduced gas mileage - makes sense but one would think with modern technology Lexus could have given more power and maintained efficiency. My 2001 and 2004 LSs averaged 20 mpg all-around over 200,000 miles; the 2010 averages 18.9 over 95,000 miles of same daily driving. Exterior styling is bland, but at least it is not as disappointing as driving an "all new" 2013-2014 that looks nearly the same. To compete in its class, the LS needs significantly more horsepower and torque.

Review

This is my 7th Lexus, 4 LS models and 3 RX models. Simply the best driving auto I ever have had. Dependable and for the comfort and size, the MPG is great. Overall 24 on the LS and 26 on the RX. Lexus service is fantastic and accommadating.


Best Features

Absolutely love the navigation and Satalite radio

2010 Lexus LS 460 Sedan L 4dr Sedan AWD (4.6L 8cyl 8A)


Review

Lexus/Toyota continues to impress my family and myself. This is the primary car my wife drives. I drive a Mercedes S550 (brand-new) and I cannot express the disappointment I have had after spending over $110K. I have brought my Mercedes back to the dealer over 6 times since I took ownership. Lexus? Zero problems, zero trips to the dealer except for scheduled maintenance. My other family member has a BMW 5-series. Unacceptable reliability.


Best Features

Acceleration, handling, quality of interior materials, exceptional GPS and information center.


Worst Features

Perhaps a bit work on the interior design...

2010 Lexus LS 460 Sedan L 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 8A)


Review

This is the first Lexus I have ever owned as a car collector. The LS 460 L has much bigger back seats than other Lexus models do. When you drive around you feel like your in an S550. You would think this car would have like 14 mpg. but this car doesn't. The GPS always comes in handy but now I don't think you could call a GPS a luxury feature. So remember, S550 vs. LS 460. LS 460 wins.


Best Features

The back seat. If you ask someone who has or had an LS model if the back seat was comfortable they will say yes. The back seat is pretty close to how much space a 7 series back seat has.


Worst Features

The exterior design. The LS 460 looks like a plain Lexus. The LS is WAY more than that. Main point: Lexus needs to figure out another design for the LS to make it look like a luxury car.
