Pros

Prior to 1991 I only owned Mercedes, in 1992 I purchased my first Lexus LS400, then LS 430, then GS 470 SUV then another GS 470  They have been the best trouble free cars I have owned

Cons

Can't think of anything negative

Excellent Luxury Car — Best car I have ever owned. Far superior to Mercedes. Smooth tight ride. Still handles and feels like a new car. The car handles and feels like a new car. Car is 12 years old and still looks and feels like a new car. My last Lexus had twice the mileage as this one and still felt and drove like a new car. Most trouble free car I have ever owned.

Outstanding — The Lexus is the way all cars should be made. We spent a lot more on Mercedes and had no where near the results. If the Lexus had BMW handling.....it would be the best car ever made. We were quite surprised to find the V8 engine got 23.8 MPG on the average. The large tank gives you 450 plus mile range. It did take awhile to master all the many features in the car.

This Is "the" Car That Is Truly Reliable. — It's very comfortable in the driver's seat, and all seats for that matter. Clear visibility, spacious interior and a rather large trunk space. The Mark Levinson sound System is superb when you play a real CD (not CDs with music converted from MP3 files). Navigation system best in business, clearer than Garmin. My car was bought in 2001 as a 2002 model. Nothing has ever gone wrong, except little things like the mirrors do not fold back into position. Other than that, regular oil changes, battery changes every five years, tires and wiper blades replaced at they expire... that's it! Put in the gas, and go! No worries! If you are looking for a car that will haul the family on a vacation, in style, with no worries that it will break down during the trip, this is the car to buy. It will accelerate quite quickly, 0-60 in 6.3 seconds. But it will not do great at weaving in and out of traffic.
