2008 Lexus LS 600h L 4dr Sedan AWD (5.0L 8cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

The LS 600 is an impressive vehicle. Although relatively silent to driver, it is quite clear there are any number of mechanical events occurring at a given time in connection with the complexities of the hybrid system. A slight rev when the car is started to charge the battery, complete silence at a stop or below 25 mph, and a symbiotic relationship between battery power,engine power and regeneration from braking and downhill driving. I am not sure any other car company could have pulled off the engineering in this car in such a tight, well thought out, and yes even emotional machine.

Best Features

Build quaility, near silent, massive power during aggressive acceleration, adjustable suspension really works in Sport and comfort, slick integrated DVD and excellent nav/stereo. Car looks terrific in black.

Worst Features

Batteries steal trunk space, and probably need second generation (smaller and less weight) to fully make sense of the technology.
