1991 Lexus LS 4.0L V8
Silent, comfy power in a reliable, bulletproof car
Replaced front driver upper control arm at 164,000.
Replaced spark plugs and wires that were from 1991 at 164,000.
Replaced battery that was 6 years old.
Replaced rotted out factory Pioneer sub woofer with a newer Lexus Pioneer subwoofer at 165,000.
Seat warmers stopped worked at 164,000.
The car handles VERY well for such a large car. I would toss it around like a small Camry, and it took the abuse with grace.
The engine is bulletproof and VERY strong, and is VERY quiet and very good on gas for a V8!
Strong brake system, good traction and ABS systems saved my butt a few times!
The car is quieter than any other car I have been in before. Excellent sound deadening and anti vibration systems.
The heat and cooling is extremely strong, and works in 10 degree F weather and 106 degree F weather.
Stock sound system is extremely good for any car, let alone one this old. 7 speakers Pioneer.
The glass headlights suck quite badly. Buy aftermarket headlights.
After 21 years, everything electrical except the seat warmers still works flawlessly... Take that BMW, Mercedes and American auto companies!
The instrument cluster is one of the best I have EVER seen, with cold cathode 3D lighting...
I took the car up to 150 MPH with ease, and it felt solid. That is incredible right there....
My next car will be a newer 1998+ Lexus LS. These are built tough and like tanks. I would say it's the most reliable car I have ever owned.
Bought the car for $1200, and spent $3000 on it to be 100% perfect. Well worth it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
