"I absolutely adore this car. I have owned 5 Cadillacs and they don't even come close to this car. When you start this car yoou cannot hear or feel it inside until you step on the gas. My current plan is to drive it until I die. Best ever....!!!"
"It is what it is....the best car i have ever owned/driven.. i bought this 94 with 108,000 miles on it i now have 160,000 i have changed the oil and tires that is it..... car is 15 yrs old and looks better and runs better than 80% of the new cars on the road today..and the chix dig it too.....throw some 20s on it and look out"
"I bought this car from a friends father, who was a maintenance freak. Well maintained. I bought it to use in business 12 years ago. Picked up the car and my wife drove it home. She was adamant about keeping her van. Half way home told me that I would not like the car. She saved me from myself! I can't get her out of the car as long as it rolls she will drive it. Only complaint Toyota normally uses under capacity breaks in the first model year of all the cars, the Lexus is no exception. I have done more break maintenance then I would like, but not compared to the BMW and MB vehicles.
The first of it's line which revolutionized the luxury car industry. Just a flat out great car."
"I've had my LS400 over 16 years and it is still running great. All maintenance and repair are reasonable on this car if you find a good mechanic as the parts are much more reasonable than their European counterparts."
"If you are looking for the best luxury and reliability, Ls400 is the car for you. Most people don't know that it is really fuel efficient V8 too, it gets around 20 mpg average!!! I would recommend getting a model that has Nakamichi stereo system, you gonna love it ;)~ Bottom line no Bimer Mercedes or Infinity will offer you same reliability as this Lexus, sold mine 1990 when it had 225k miles to a friend of mine and he still drives to this day!!!"
"In 1989, Toyota introduced Lexus' LS. This was made to compete with the BMW 7-Series, and the Merc S-Class. They did a great job. I am a car enthusiast, and have driven many higher end cars. Unfortunately, my income does not permit me to own any of those cars. But this can come close. I have driven the incumbent (735-750, S420-S600), and have to say, other than the speed department, Lexus nailed it. Great fuel economy, excellent comfort and amenities. It's a relatively slow car (0-60 est. 7.5sec) for me, and I've also had a few slight problems with the power steering pump and the instrument cluster, but beyond that, the LS wins over BMW and Mercedes in the early nineties, hands down. Does great in rain, great in snow (w/ snow tires). If you find one at a good price, you can't go wrong."
