2007 Lexus LS 460 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 8A)


Review

Purchased car in September 2007. Test drove BMW 750i and decided to buy LS 460 due to reliability track record. The car is a great improvement over LS 430 in most categories. The interior design is more sporty and not just for older crowd. Exterior design is sporty but blends in with smaller Lexus sedans too easily. The seats are not very supportive in hard turns but comfortable. Rear seats with power recline and ventilation are very comfortable. The suspension is far better then previous LS 430. One major flaw is wind noise from both front windows. Just like every one else waiting for dealer to get parts as per Lexus bulletin. I seriously hope that this will fix the noise issue.


Best Features

Engine performance, transmission, interior design and foremost fuel economy for such a large car.


Worst Features

Make exterior design more distinctive from other Lexuses. You can never confuse an "S" series to "C" series. Use a single button to select major control with touch screen to make adjustments (reduce clutter on dash). Softer head rest and more supportive front seats.

Review

Although I would like to own an American car, I had to give up my Cadillac for this one. Originally looked at the 430 in 2006. Glad I waited for the 460. After much research, I think I made the best choice. Was recently advised that there is a service bulletin for interior wind noise. Dealer, once approved after tech ride along, will replace weatherstrip, install thicker glass and additional insulation. My parts are on order. Hope the fix works.


Best Features

Horse power and electronics. Stereo is fantastic.


Worst Features

Wind noise a problem. Dealer to try to fix. Having to hit "I agree" button upon start up of navigation. Some functions of phone and navigation disabled while driving. Lexus should come up with some overide system to allow driver to fully operate while driving.

Review

This is a great vehicle, but with one real problem and a few minor problems. A couple of months after owning the car both my wife and I started to notice that the front seats were becoming less comfortable. It feels like there is a bar across the back of the seat and down the middle. There's no way I could drive the car for some hours. My Lexus dealer says this is normal stretching. Very limited access to the navigation system while moving is a pain. There is an annoying tick from the engine compartment at idle which the dealer says is normal. Wind noise is present at above 45 MPH.


Best Features

The navigation system is great, provided you only want to use it while stopped. Audio system is the best I've ever heard - in a house or a car. The internal design is luxurious. Acceleration is great, cornering less so.


Worst Features

Make the front seats more comfortable. Allow full use of the navigation system when there is a passenger in the front seat. Allow the firmer suspension option to be fitted on the base model, not just the L version. Fix the wind noise.

Review

This is the perfect car! Beautifully styled, luxuriously outfitted, strong performance, and incredible finish and reliability. I have owned 10 Lexuses, including the previous generation LS 430, but this one is the pinnacle of perfection. The worries and stress drain from me when I sit behind the wheel, glance at the elegant wood trim, tune the Mark Levinson stereo, and sink into the cushioned leather of the most comfortable driver's seat in autodom. The interior is whisper quiet, with a faint engine noise as the car effortlessly accelerates to freeway speed. I am in heaven.


Best Features

Exterior and interior design, dashboard design and wood finish, new alabaster interior color, ability to lengthen the driver's seat cushion for comfortable thigh support, strong but soundless engine, excellent gas mileage (26 mpg real world on the freeway at 80 mph).


Worst Features

None are possible. This car is perfect!

Review

I've owned the car for a month and a half now, and the Lexus lockout of much of the navigation, phone, and even audio functions while the car is in motion is a major issue - had Lexus been honest and forthright about this in their sales literature and through their dealership, I would have not purchased the vehicle. Overall, the car rides nice, but a bit insulated. My previous car, a 2006 750li, handles better, provides better tactile road feel, has far more comfortable and adjustable seats, and, with its active suspensions, corners mush better than the LS. I do like the exterior styling of the LS better


Worst Features

Unlock the nav/phone/audio features!!
