"We purchased our 98 LS400 in 2004 from the original owner. I drove it for 4 years and then gave it to our son who was in college. We wanted him to have safe and reliable transportation. He has driven it since. The LS has an unbeatable ride, undeniable reliability and will serve you well if it is maintained properly. As with all luxury vehicles, it is not cheap to do some of the maintenance, but it is worth it... and oil changes only need to be done at 5-7,000 mile intervals. We always used full synthetic oil and had it serviced at our local Toyota dealership."

"After 18 years about the only things I've had to replace are the wipers, batteries and tires. Drives like a dream."

"I'm only selling because I need an SUV to pull my boat and travel in. My Lexus is a car that was so great I didn't think I'd ever sell it. Has all the amenities Lexus offers. Its a beautiful White, Plat. Series. New battery, like new tires, new exhaust. Great gas mileage and 395 Ponys. Back seat almost never sat in. Super clean. Most of the miles are highway. No dents, a few tiny tiny chips on the front of hood. Power seats , seat warmers, auto everything. This is a car that could easily go 350,000 miles or more. I want $8500, firm. It was a $60,000 car new."

"My platinum series has less than 65000 miles and has been garaged most of its life. People stop me coming out of parking garages and ask to buy it ALL the time. No way... Lexus rules!!! It's a shimmering GOLD color and lives up to it."
