From a Mustang GT to a Family Car
By Ben Logan on


1998 Lexus LS 400 4dr Sedan


The car is solid as a rock. It has never once coughed or buzzed or knocked. I feel very safe driving my family around in it. Switching from a Mustang GT stick, it took a while to get used to the delay in jumping off the line. If you want power immediately, or are doing an instant merge to freeway speeds, you better be power breaking it from the get go. It has plenty of power, even more than the GT, but that half second delay can get you if you aren't used to it. I am still finding cool features. It is luxury at its finest.

Best Features

Everyone loves to fall asleep in it. The driver's seat goes completely horizontal. The ride is silent and smooth.

Worst Features

It is pretty generic looking overall, but most execs and mature guys aren't interested in getting attention with their car. The CD player went out on me, and changing out the stereo will kill the dash because the sound system is so integrated. I would suggest finding one with the Nakamichi.
