Expected Smoother Ride

The best part of my car is it’s stunning exterior. It’s beautiful, and the inside is great too. I don’t like the ride, for a Lexus. They come with No Flat tires because there is no spare tire. These tires give it a rougher ride then regular tires and cost about $1500 each. Today, I got so sick of the ride, I changed them out for $275 Michelin tires which makes the ride much more Lexus like smooth. It was frustrating to feel every bump and road with the harder tires in Lexus Flagship expensive car. The info panel takes some getting used to because of the mouse you have to use, but once you get the hang of it, it’s better. Bottom line, I expected a much smoother ride from my brand new LS 500 and wish I would have known when I bought it, that the No Flat tires were rough, creating a need for me to replace 3 month tires with ones meant for a smooth riding luxury car. Update: I have had the new much less expensive Michelin tires on now for 2 days. Awesome change! I now have the ‘Lexus Smooth Ride’ I expected. I love this car!!!

Love mt 2018 LS500 AWD

Awesome car. I moved from a 2016 GS350. what a difference in interior quality! LS500 is undoubtedly leaps above the GS. Don't get me wrong... GS is a great car in its own class. But the LS is a much better car. I was thinking of BMW 540 and Benz E450. in the end, when I test drove those vs the LS500, I realized that I love the LS better than the other 2. and the peace of mind that comes with lexus ownership was priceless. The LS500 is a great and beautiful car. ride is very comfy. acceleration is sneaky fast. you will hit 80mph before you will know it. Love it!

I researched numerous vehicles before purchasing my New LS500, and I’m very satisfied with my purchase. This vehicle is very luxurious, comfortable, fun to drive. The massage feature for the driver & front passenger seats is amazing. The reclining rear seats are very comfortable and spacious. The vehicle will definitely turn heads, and inside & out the new LS is definitely a winner.

High performance car with classic good looks; interior well organized,architechally (front) pleasing and artistic. Power on demand with crisp, secure handling (need to get acclimated!), amazing agility. Comfortable, firm front seat - a bit stiff but OK.

I owned a 2006 LS 430 originally, and this is measured against that car all the time when I drive it. My F Sport with run flat tires rides slightly harder, but corner much better. The ride quality is still superb, it is very quiet, and has amazing power and excellent shift characteristics. I also like the different drive modes, and use them for different driving experiences. Lots of Power and Acceleration with the two Sport Modes, and quiet and refined in Comfort mode (and the power in Comfort mode is more than enough for most people). The car actually delivers very good MPG in the sport modes if you drive at normal speed, only fast acceleration effects your mileage. This car also has an amazing group of automatic features. The air system and heated/cooled seats can be placed in automatic, and it will turn systems on as needed to heat and cool you, it uses inferred to check your body temp. The automatic high beams are a great help, and actually work, unlike some other cars I've driven. And the voice command system can be used to override the need for the Lexus Mouse, and thus making Navigation, Climate, Phone use, and seeing the weather report effortless. Most of the knocks on this vehicle are overstated, and of very little relevance to your driving fun. A great car, and Oh, did I mention, its a Lexus, so it won't be in the shop sucking your wallet dry like a German sedan or SUV. See my 2016 Porsche Macan S for an extremely expensive and annoying example. Most reviewers don't even mention reliability and cost of ownership as MAJOR Lexus equalizers.
