I have a high-pressure job & like my car to be a low-pressure, traveling sofa, so when I tested various cars (Audi A6 & A8, Mercedes 550, BMW 7 series) the LS 460 stole the show. My priorities are quiet cabin, smooth ride, great sound system and plush interior, so I'm very happy with my choice.
Before I purchased this car I talked to a number of people who owned one and generally everyone gave it an "A" grade. Now that I have purchase mine, I AGREE COMPLETELY, with the exception of IT NEEDS MORE HORSEPOWER to keep competitive with the Mercedes S550 and BMW 750 series. I always enjoy getting into my new Lexus LS460 to drive it, and on top of my enjoyment I have received numerous compliments.
15 k miles , LS needed jump start . Lexus sent dealer hourly with a Mickey Mouse portable battery that couldn't start a flashlight . Used my 2016 ES. 350 as hot battery . Followed the hourly to Lexus of. Cherry Hill , where o e. Battery had 1 dead cell . This repeated 3 more times over a 5 month period . Still under warranty , had 4 fails to crank , and replace battery . Lexus zone promised to Examine and diagnose LS , but never showed up , and denied any claim even though all I just said is documented . My opinion after owning 127 Lexus cars Is , they should examine themselves before all they manufacture is Toyotas . I bought a 2017 Genesis G 80 and it's As good as my LS 400 when it first came out in 1989. X dr. Mitchell Rowe ; New Jersey - 70 miles from Zone office - who never Showed up at local dealer : Lexus of Cherry Hill NJ , to diagnose the car . This L S , ate 4 batteries -: original equip And 3 inferior replacement batteries . After the factory turned their back on Me ( gave me my walking papers ) , I was forced to pay $ 6400 to Lexus of Cherry Hill NJ , if I wanted to continue To lease the Lexus LS that looked great - But needed a tow truck to go from point A to point B . The ultimate ?RATMOBILE?
Must say that the LS460 F Sport is much better choice then the regular model in its class. Before buying this LS, I drove the 750IL, S-class and A8. I find the LS Sport is the best choice overall in terms of looks, feels and comfort. The exterior of this the F Sport in white makes the 2014 S-class, Audi A8 or 750IL looking ugly. Lexus has done an outstanding job in the new body stye and the reason why I bought the F sport model. especially in the F Sport Model. It rides like butter in any condition. For the money and it's Lexus I wouldn't think twice. I owned the CL550 AMG 2010 and traded in for this F Sport in Aug 30 and it has been a joyable ride so far. Highly recommended car.
Lexus used to have digital clocks which were easy to read. Now there is a analog clock which is difficult to read primarily because the clock hands are the same color as the background which pretty much renders it useless when driving.
