2008 Lexus LS 460 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 8A)


Review

My wife and I originally went into the Lexus dealer looking for a new GS. The salesman took us for a ride but said upfront that the car may be a little small for me. I am 6'5 and broad shouldered. He was right and the car was a bit cramped. While we were waiting for him to return with the keys my wife saw the LS460 and said she loved how that one looked. I of course responded that it was also the most expensive! When our salesman returned we said we would also like to drive the LS. Of course there was no comparison and we bought the LS. It is just the perfect car. So fast and incredibly comfortable. The interior is the nicest we have ever seen baring none. Highly recommend it!


Best Features

The high horsepower engine is amazing, blue tooth and hard drive are great. Mark Levinson sound system is truly unbelievable. 19 speakers! Remote controlled window and sunroof opening is great too.


Worst Features

True Iphone/Ipod connection not just an mp3 jack. Some better wheel options and something with chrome. Mp3 downloading ability instead of just wave files. That is really it. Love everything else.

2008 Lexus LS 460 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 8A)


Review

Great car, smooth and comfortable ride. Great mileage - have driven ~5200 miles and have gotten ~22mpg in city and ~30.5 mpg on a 475 mile trip from NC to KY via the Virginia/WV mountains. Worth every penny (since I got it for a discount buying a new 2008 as the 2009 models were coming in).


Best Features

Love driving it on the highway. Very smooooooth. Love the interior comfort & am content with the outside styling.


Worst Features

Nothing major. Nav lockup bugs me. Of course I don't intend to fool with it when I'm driving but the front passenger should be able to control it...

Review

After a year with this car, it has been very dependable. However, like with most other owners, the side wind noise drives me batty. And calls to Lexus say that it is a design problem, that nothing can be done about it, and the problem won't be addressed until about the 2011 model year. Bummer. Also, the complete lockout of nearly every navigation feature while in motion renders the system nearly useless. Don't waste the money on this. Buy a Garman instead.


Best Features

Excellent sound system when the wind noise doesn't overpower it.


Worst Features

Fewer doodads that I rarely use and concentration on the basic comfort and quality issues. Front seat does not have a tilting seat... only up and down and back and forth. Just the back tilts. I like to be able to adjust in this way and expect it on a car this expensive.

Review

First off this is my fourth Lexus. The car is great as far as comfort, handling, and performance. My major complaint is the difficulty of modifying the navigation system while the auto is in motion. I understand the safety ramifications, but when you have a passenger in the front seat this should be disarmed. I was pleasantly surprised with the gas mileage...I've actually hit 33 miles per gallon with this car, which to me is unheard of with this large of an engine (and considering how fast I drive). The navigation system is not logical. The Acura RL I recently traded in was very intuitive, this one, the driver actually has to arrange his thoughts before hitting the "talk" switch.


Best Features

Retracting mirrors when the car is locked.


Worst Features

Allow the navigation system to operate while the car is in motion. And make it more intuitive: i.e. to program a previous destination, allow the driver to say something like: "Navigation", "Previous Destinations", (and choose the desired location), then say "Enter".

Review

I have owned a BMW 3 series, 540i, MB SL 500 and a Porsche 911 C4S. The LS is no Porsche of course but it is the "Porsche" of luxury sedans in my opinion. The ride, power, and luxury are at the top and the reliability is a good feeling to have. The performance is very good for a large sedan, not as good as the 750, but pretty close. For the money, the LS 460 L is by far the best purchase I could have made in this segment. unbelievable car, go and get your own yow won't regret it.


Best Features

Soft close doors, Marc Levinson, HDD that rips CDs, rear seat recline, leather headliner, chrome trim, parking guidance, rich leather and wood trim, and adjustable air suspension package.


Worst Features

Front end needs more refinement, wider wheels to enhance appearance. After market wheels are available in 10" width.
