1999 Lexus LS 400 4.0 V8

I just tested the car today and hesitating whether if it's a wise choice. When I first got in the car, the temperage gauge was hopping as if there was a shock or something... it stopped a few minutes later!!

General Comments:

It's extremely smooth... comparing to the BM 7 series that I had before... I couldn't even feel the V8 running under the hood.. acceleration is less violent than in the BM.. that's the point that I loved the most in the 7 series... but to be realistic... what would we do with that much acceleration while traffic lights and speed radars are placed every half a Mile...

It's a 99 and has 60000 miles... the Lexus dealer sells it for 17000$ without warranty and 19000$ with one year limited warranty (engine, transmission, pumps and electronics only)... but what I've been wondering was... does an one year warranty worth 2000$?? Is a car of this quality probable to have reparations of this price at this mileage???

I would really appreciate if anyone could give me some advice on this car!!! Thank you very much for your attention!!!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I've got a 99 LS fully loaded with navi; that's a good price. You should consider buying one. My 99 has 81000 and runs like a clock. I haven't tuned it yet, and have only owned it for 16 months. It was bought with 70000 miles, and I paid $16000.
