1990 Lexus LS 400 from North America
Best car I have ever owned
Alternator went bad at around 200,000.
Leather is extremely worn. Have found cheap place to get it replaced. ($1000 for entire car redone in leather)
Air conditioning compressor went out last August. ($1000 at air conditioner shop)
Climate control display no longer works, but controls are operable.
Currently need upper control arms and bushings. Haven't done it yet, because it will cost me $1600.
This is the best car (used or new) that I have ever owned. I bought this car with 170,000 miles on it, and have put another 100,000 on it. I spent more on the Lincoln I owned before it, and the Lincoln didn't even have 1/4 the miles on it before I decided to get rid of that money pit.
The Lexus is just as quick as the Lincoln was, but it doesn't handle as well. I found this out quickly while trying to take a corner in it the same way I used to in the Lincoln. I only made that mistake once!
If you want a reliable care that looks good, and has low maintenance cars, then I would definitely recommend this car. If you like a sporty, corner hugging ride, then you might not be happy with it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
