The LS 400 is the smartest used car buy.

1997 Lexus LS 400 4dr Sedan


I have owned a lot of vehicles, but this vehicle is one of the finest machines ever built. The ultra smooth motor and trans., the unmatched suspension, tight lack of rattles and almost no wind noise until you hit 100 mph, the engine is just barely past 3000 rpms at this speed and the car just cruises like that is a normal everyday speed. This is automotive excellence at it's finest. At this point in the life of the car, its depreciation almost levels off compared to most cars in this category, that lose 3-6000 in value annually, look at the prices for 94, 95, 96 they are very close. So when reselling you still have some money left. You will not regret the purchase of this car

Best Features

Seats front and back, dual zone climate, ergonomics, quietness.

Worst Features

Cup holders kind of suck, and that v-8's thirst for fuel when tapping into power reserves too often. Watch out for malfunctioning gauges on cold start up and power steering pumps.
