1992 Lexus LS 400 from North America
In six years, apart from routine service, all I have had to do is change the serpentine belt and buy an new battery.
This is the best car I have owned.
Beautifully engineered, great looks, high end luxury, silent, super performance, comfortable leather seating, fantastic Nakamichi sound system.
Others have complained of high dealer costs, but you don't have to go there. Use a good neighbourhood garage. Many parts are interchangeable with stock Toyota ones. In any case, you save a lot of maintenance expense because of superb reliability.
At 180K car uses no oil.
Mechanic tells me ball joints are now worn, but I'll probably continue to drive it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
