1995 Lexus LS 400 8 cylinder 4.0
A serene, capable and classy driving machine
Car check engine light recently came on-needs a new oxygen sensor. A/C needs a new hose/tube, but compressor is still good. All other requirements were general maintenance-replacement of all fluids and filters.
A perfect car for someone like myself who doesn't like driving. It is silky smooth, fast, luxurious and dead silent. For some this is a sterile drive, for me,serene.The sound system is way above average while fuel consumption hurts, but considering the size, weight and age of the car, it's still a very efficient V8 (a 4 litre V8 is a small as they come).
It is the ultimate cruiser which inspires confidence and security with a timeless style. These cars will be classics in the next 10 years and if properly maintained, will last well beyond that. It is the most car 5000.00$ could buy. I was lucky in that it had only one owner who maintained it meticulously- he had all the records for the last 13 years!
Now 7 months and 10 000 kms later, I know I made the right choice.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
