One of the finest cars on the road
Original serpentine belt started to make noise at 135,000 miles (my fault for not replacing it earlier).
Had to have the front rotors turned at 140,000.
The LS400 is in my opinion one of the finest cars in the world. I picked mine up back in early 2004 with 120,000, it looked great and had all of the options you could possibly want including air suspension.
The car is amazingly quiet with little road noise or wind noise.
The LS400's 4.0 liter is very quick off the line and has plenty of passing power.
Braking is amazingly strong for such a large car.
Handling is good, but not sporty, body lean is evident, but TEMS (Toyota Electronically Modulated Suspension) helps that a bit.
The Interior is laid out nicely and is of very high quality materials, the instrument cluster is very clear and easy to read, and radio and climate controls work well. The leather is durable and very soft at the same time.
Overall this is one great car, this was my second LS400 and I am now Hooked on Lexus.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
