2010 Lexus LS 460 Sedan 4dr Sedan AWD (4.6L 8cyl 8A)
I traded my 2002 LS-430 for the 460. The older 430 seemed much more of a luxury car in style, roominess, and feel. The gas mileage on the 460 is awful and exterior style is not distinctive enough to set it apart as a luxury car. It looks like a car costing $30-45K rather than the sticker $76K .
Very smooth handling; stylish dash; bluetooth-capable; full-featured navigation system.
Lexus needs to design a hybrid luxury car with great mileage (the L600 is only 19/23 and $96+K) - put the mileage of the 250 in a 460; don't put compartments within the glove box; make the arm rest extend more to the front (for us drivers who drive with the seat way forward).
Wrote a review a few days ago. Just further information. My loaded Sport LS listed for a little over $78,000.00. A comparable S class would be $115,00.00. A fully equipped 7 Series would be a little less. While each car has certain advantages over the other, the Lexus is an amazing bargain. The build quality, features, and comfort are as good as you can buy for any price. If you ask, the dealer will give you completely free service for 4 years as well.
Have been a Mercedes S class and Cl owner for 25 years. Can't afford either any longer in this economy. Looked at the E class, XJ,XF, and BMW 550 (no interior storage). Passed a Lexus dealer and went in. Saw a great looking car, went for a test drive. Never left B4 leasing the Sport LS, it has every option and package that Lexus offers. The Sport suspension gives great road feedback and cornering ability. The Sport transmission gives amazing shifts and power. The body cladding, fabulous wheels, summer tires, and interior make this car something special. It is " Purrfect." Always thought a Lexus was a " Grandpa " car. Wow was I wrong!!
Exterior Design, Interior Design, Easy Electronics, Comfort,Huge Trunk, Great Ride. Fabulous Engine, Suspension, and Transmission. Lexus service...Called for the 1000 mile checkup, Didn't even have drive to the dealer. A technician came to my home! Benz never offered that kind of convenience.
Only a couple. Needs a blind spot indicator in side view mirrors. Voice Command for the phone could be quicker like a Mercedes.

I was tired of the problems and expense of the Audi A8 and switched to the Lexus, and I am very happy about it, more comfortable, at least as nice to drive, and quieter. And I can expect it to be more reliable.
Quiet comfort, great handling.
Navigation could be more interactive, traffic only on interstates.
Leased the LS460. Options "Sport Package", "Luxury Package", "Convenience Package" Considered Jaguar XF Supercharged, Infiniti MS56, BMW 5 Series. Everyday I can't wait to get into the car. Up go the windows and so long to the outside world. Radio on and wow I am in a dream space. Comfort, quiet, styling of the Sport LS is fantastic, big wheels, great lower styling kit. Interior is beautiful. Just close doors gently and motors close them the rest of the way. Heated and cooled seats, a brake hold feature so you can stop and remove your feet from the pedal during a long signal. All seats are comfortable with ample head, shoulder and leg room. It's a keeper.
Just about everything, an amazing feat of engineering and build quality.
Side view mirrors give good visibility but watch out for cars in the blind spot.
