Best Luxury Sedan For The $$$ — My first Lexus. It re-defined Luxury in a Sedan. I was shocked at it's performance from a dead stop and a rolling start of 20 mph. It was a 10! It was amazing how Quite the car was. AWESOME VEHICLE!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: My first Lexus. It re-defined Luxury in a Sedan.  I was shocked at it's performance from a dead stop and a rolling start of 20 mph. It was a 10!

Cons: A lot of my friends referred to it as "The Toyota".  They all ended up driving one eventually and joined the ranks of happy, Lexus Owners! llot...

A Very Classy Car — This is a classic lexus - they are great cars - they run forever - your mx costs are sometimes hign, but the ability of the internet to provide both parts and repairs to parts that you thought unfixable is amazing - had entire dashboard instrument panel "rebuilt" through an internet vendor - microsurgery on all the capacitors - amazing - same thing with the on board computer - it died - and a guy in Miami tore it down and repaired it - $300 vs $3000 for that part. So - as it ages it actually gets easier to find parts/repairs.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of power, very safe - handles really well - a great car for my daughter to have used going back and forth to school

Cons: Repair parts are expensive because it is a Lexus - you can get aftermarket OEM parts, but most repair shops don't like ot deal with them

I've Loved My Car And Don't Regret The Purchase. Lexus Is A++ — I've owned my car since 1995 (2nd owner). It has served me well over the years. As the car gets to be about 10 years old, of course, expect more expensive repairs. I don't regret buying this Lexus. If you like this year's look (one of the more handsome older styles), and you can find one that has been taken care of, it would be an investment. Of course, gas mileage these days is a consideration, however, I would still buy a new larger lexus if it was in my budget. - JRP

Pursuit Of Perfection — Its a hallmark of reliability and perfection. Smooth, yet controlled. Amazing engine, which is not noticeable until unless you see the tacho meter. Being in UAE, it has become a fact that it has the cheapest parts available in market, even much cheaper than compact economy cars.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Refinement on the Roll!

Cons: Too Soft for Fun Seeker

Smooth. — This car runs the smoothest of all the ones I drove. Whenever you accelerate and it changes gears, you can't hear it. You can't feel it. It just goes! Its also very comfortable. This car can carry loads of gas and has decent miles per gallon.

Pros: Smooth.
Rear wheel drive.

Cons: Nothing

Want One Again —

When these cars were launched in the UK in the 90's I fell in love. 15 years on, I have the opportunity of owning one. Lexus. The luxury version of Toyota. But who cares? This beast from the east, for me at least, seriously beats Merc, Jag & BMW all the way. I used to work for a local Merc dealer, and only the very, VERY high-end spec cars came as standard with what this does. Electric seats with memory, air con, cruise, alarm, 6-disc multi changer, hand stitched leather seats. The list is quite long. 'Mags', as we named her, had 130,000 miles on her, and it does not show one iota. The smell of leather was there when you open the doors, The V8 engine and auto 'box are silky smooth. No dents, dinks, rust or tiredness showed. My only small gripes are the seats. Not all that fantastic to sit in, and on a long journey, you'll probably have to stop for a stretch, but saying that, with the cruise on and the I.C.E. (which is PHENOMENAL) who'd want to get out of the car? The steering's not a tight as I'd like, but these things are made for silent comfort, not speed. And when I say silent, I mean silent. Little to no road noise, the engine at tick over has yet to fail to elect a smile from me. You can just about tell it's running. Even though this is a heavy and long car (it sometimes JUST to say fits in a normal car park space) it still returns a decent 20-25mpg round town and 30+mpg on motorways.

Pros: Hugely luxurious, phenomenal V8 4.0 liter, Phenomenal I.C.E., all the gadgets you could wish for. Cheap to buy

Cons: Expensive to run and repair.
