Best Car Ever — Best Car ever. Bought an 8 yr old 1999 LS 400 and it drives like new. This car was manufactured with tons of options. Full size spare mounted on an alloy wheel? Wow. Awesome sound system. QUIET as can be. On a recent 400 mile drive, I loved every minute behind the wheel.

Buy One, You'll Love It. — Amazing car. Has Nakumichi stereo to die for. 29mpg on highway. Navi, 6 disk CD etc loaded. Love the power head rest etc. Could use more sporty handling around town. On highway there is nothing better. Amazing build quality and nothing broke or rattles. Everyone should treat themselve to one once. try one once. Added Michelin Artic Ice Xi2's and she does good on snow and ice.

Cons

Hydralics may not work properly,

Lexus Ls400 — good performance for a car with 290HP. Seats 5 adults. Fuel economy could be better however its a V8. It's fun to drive. Steering is easy. Breaking is good. If maintaned properly it could last for a long while. I've had mine for 10 years !

Arguably The Best Production Luxury Car In The World. — This vehicle admirably fills the role for which it was created. That means it is seriously reliable, comfortable, eerily quiet, silkily smooth in handling, beautifully appointed and a goodly performer. It literally glides along because of its low air flow resistance and it is a joy to drive every time you get behind the wheel. The engineering staff certainly did their homework for this model.

Pros

everything except the fuel Econermy which is why i converted mine to LPG.

Cons

Fuel econermy is bad compared to normal family car, but on LPG it's the same or better.

Buy One. Or An Ls430/460/600h If You Have The Money For One Of Those. — Great car more toys then you'd ever think possible extremely reliable, very fast and the most comfortable car in the world thats not a Maybach. oh and it goes like stink and can tow very well. And unlike Honda Legends etc it's RWD so actually handles a bit instead of massive understeer.

Lexus Is Luxury Safe Reliable Family Sedan — recently bought LS400 base at 180,000 miles for $69K. So far it's just perfect, quiet, smooth, gear shifting is almost unnoticeable. i have yet to see how long the car will last and cost of ownership will be, but at this time it's just one nice luxury sedan like new i've ever driven.

Cost of maintanence at high mileage

My Eleventh Car — This was my favorite car. It has all the power you would want in normal driving. High Quality fit and finish even with 100k miles. The ride is very smooth and comfortable for everyone. Easy to drive and gets good highway gas mileage. Only issue is the cost of maintanence once you reach the high mileage stage.

Pros

EXTREMELY reliable, powerful highway cruiser, surprisingly quick for its size, and has HUGE 4piston brakes from the factory.

Cons

VERY VERY Heavy car, ~3800lbs.
Transmission/rear end are geared for highway cruising more than redlight drags...
slightly sluggish off the start, more isolated than slow.

Truly Touted As The Best Production Luxury Sedan Ever Made! — Awesomely powerful and seriously smooth, quiet, responsive, ccomfortable, reliable and well appointed. Forget the reports about the alleged "lack of character." The aforementioned characteristics MAKE a car like the Lexus LS400, one with its very OWN CHARACTER. Harold, Sth Australia.
