    2007 Lexus LS 460

    In 50 years best car I have owned

    Pros: The ride

    Cons: Voice recognition system

    I have owned 39 cars in past 50 years. I have owned Imperials, Infinitis, Thunderbirds, as well as several Chevies and Fords. This is by far the best car I have owned.

    This car is perfectly AWESOME

    Pros: Sat.Serius XM radio

    We have the LS 460L, the longer version. Our third LS & undoubtedly the best one yet.

    2010 Lexus LS 460

    Great with some flaws

    Pros: User control simplicity & value

    Cons: Driver door noise & lack of driver seat adjustments

    I have owned many Lexus cars including 3 LS models. I love the value & simplicity of controls compared to the Germans. I have 2 complaints about this car. First, the driver's side door makes a noise over sudden bumps. The dealership could not fix it & acknowledged it is a design issue, one I find unacceptable in a $70,000 car. Second, the drivers seat does not adjust up enough at the front of the seat cushion. I find it difficult to get the thigh support I want. Again, in a $70,000, you should be able to adjust every section of the seat to a comfortable position. I have the same issue with my son's Hyundai, but that car cost $15,000. Other than that, adjustable suspension & steering effort would be a nice touch in this class car. Creature features & user friendly controls are a plus. The car also costs $20,000 to $30,000 less than a comparably equipped BMW 7, Mercedes S or Audi 8.

    2008 Lexus LS 460

    My Fourth Lexus

    Pros: Comfortable ride and the appearance.

    Cons: Poor quality leather on seats.

    Like everything there is good and bad news about the latest generation of Lexus. I have owned 1992, 1996, 2004 and now the 2008 LS460. The good news is that the appearance has improved. My car is triple black with chrome lexus rims - looks great! The ride is comfortable, at 380HP the engine and the eight speed transmission are smooth and powerful, gas mileage decent 16/21. Some of the interior trim is incredibly cheap ( glove box ) door and the leather on my front drivers seat began to show wear at 20K miles ( lexus has offered to stain, not replace the leather ). Service remains good but expensive and the tires that came on the car - Bridgestone EL 42s' were subject to hydroplanning and wore out in 20,500 miles ! The best Lexus I have owned was the 2004 LS. Not that this is a bad car but I am used to excellent cars from Lexus and this one falls a bit short for $74K.

    2007 Lexus LS 460 - Sedan

    Pros: Power

    Cons: Locked Out Navigation

    Advice: Have the salesperson explain why you can't override the Navigation Lockout while in motion.

    The perfect vehicle, except...most every useful function of the navigation system is locked out while you're in motion, something not found in the Acura/Honda systems. A glaring oversight for Toyota/Lexus. I'll never buy another Lexus because of it.

    2007 Lexus LS 460 - Sedan

    Pros: Advanced parking system, air cooled seats, Levinson sound system.

    Cons: Love everything.

    Advice: Value and amenities and depenability cannot be beat.

    Have owned the LS460 for 3 months, driving it has been the complete enjoyment that is missing in other so called luxury vehicles. I have driven both the Mercedes S550 and the BMW 750LI [both brand new] while searching for a new luxury car, neither can compare to the luxury, performance and value of this outstanding vehicle. Drive it and you will buy it!

    2007 Lexus LS 460 - Sedan

    Pros: Keyless system, smooth power.

    Cons: Haven't found anything yet.

    Advice: Levinson system is well worth it!

    What an incredible luxury automobile this is! Picked up my new LS460 from the dealer on November 22nd, and have been driving it for a little over a week. I have never driven a smoother, more comfortable and responsive car in my life. I traded in a 2004 GX 470 which I was very pleased with, but always wanted the LS model. I've owned Cadillac, Lincoln and Mercedes before, but no car I have ever driven compares to this beauty. If you want a fabulous luxury automobile, I don't think you can do better for under $100,000.
