Great car, but not flawless.
By Hawkman on


1998 Lexus LS 400 4dr Sedan


Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love
my LS400, but being the critic that I
am...I was expecting even more
perfection. Still the best car I've
driven, though, when it comes to peace
and serenity. Stereo system is good
but not as heart thumping as I was
expecting. My Jeep GC 5.9 Limited with
only an amped 12" sealed sub sounded
better. Transmission is awfully jumpy
at times. Slow speed transitions can
result in head snapping if not gentle
with gas pedal. The car is SOO quiet,
that I am able to hear every little
thing. I have a small rattle in the
door when driving over bumpy
roads...small vibration/rattle in the
sunroof also. That's it.

Best Features

Dashboard, power/acceleration, serenity.

Worst Features

Throttle/Transmission interaction during very slow speed transitions.
