1992 Lexus LS 400 V8 from North America
The best value in the used-car market.
I've had the usual '92 LS400 problems: Temp/Clock display is out, A/C died at about 200k, and Power Steering leak.
Have not repaired A/C yet...we'll see how hot this summer gets. Temp/Clock display will probably never be fixed.
Car was well maintained by first owner and that has helped. First owner was religious about Oil Changes, and general maintenance.
Just started developing a Noise and Vibration that I haven't isolated yet, but it sounds/feels like something in the drive train.???
This is one of the greatest cars ever manufactured. A perfect balance of performance and comfort. Very composed.
The build-quality, durability, and reliability are quite simply beyond belief.
I purchased my '92 LS400 in 1999 for $12,500. It had 150,000 miles on it and everyone said I was crazy to buy a car with mileage that high. 5 years and 75,000 miles later the car looks new, it feels new, and outperforms most new cars.
I'm taking this beast to 300k and smiling the whole way.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The Lexus ls 400 is the best car I have ever had. I am a very wealthy person (not my own choice) actually hate being able to buy whatever I want... But the Lexus is the best car I ever bought. I also love the Bentley Mulsanne. Buy one.
Paul. made some money. who cares.
