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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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

Cons: Rear wheel drive. In snowy conditions this proves challenging.

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!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It is really comfotable, like a car for the bosses

Cons: Maintainence costs on the car are realy high.

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.

Owner for 0 years, 1 months

Miles Driven per Year:15,000

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

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!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power, Transmission, RIde quality, Stereo, Interior Materials, Fit and Finish.

Cons: Size (parking); Exterior styling is a bit dated.  Looks a bit pretentious in my neighborhood.
