Pros

Smooth ride, leg room, comfortable seating, quiet, ample cargo space, gas mileage

Cons

Rear wheel drive. In snowy conditions this proves challenging.

Best Riding Car Ever! — This car is perfect for traveling. It has excellent handling and luxurious interior features that make for a comfortable, quiet, and safe experience. The car has intuitive components that spoil the occupants- like the drivers ability to move the front passengers seat through the push of a button while seating in the drivers seat. The only negative about this car is it's rear wheel drive.

It Is Very Heavy. It Has V8 Engine And Only Reaches About 90 When You Push It — ultra Luxury package! Yay! That's the top of the line models for Lexus! It costs a lot if you buy it new, but it is very cheap if you buy a certified pre-owned one. The original price was like 80 grand and after the lease guy turned it back it dropped to 30!

Ultra version may get it's eerie quiet and stability from added weight, as well as  air  
suspension.

Is The Very Definition Of A Quiet And Comfortable Way To Travel On Four Wheels. — My second LS, but first Ultra version. Total luxury. Everything always works. A real pleasure to drive. Too many virtues to discuss. A small issue with steering, which appears to be a non-oem tire set up, which I expect to resolve.

The Best Car I've Ever Owned. — Rides like glass; smooth quiet power; silky transmission; feels very solid and safe, airbags everywhere; quality of materials is awesome, paint is beautiful, HID headlights make the road light up, MPG is great for size of car; Mark Levinson stereo is best I've ever heard. After a stressful day at work, I open the perfectly balance door with awesome trim, close it with the absolutely most satisfying "whoomp", start it up to a quiet idle, slip it into gear and feel that glassy ride - click on the stereo to hear Beethoven --and feel the stress just slip away .... If, like me, you've never appreciated classical music, listen to it in this car, and you'll love it. I can hear the difference between the quality of classical music recordings easily. Such depth!
