  • Lexus launched in a blaze of glory, and has really let the star lose its luster. I don't find any of their current cars to possess a wow factor like that first LS400 did. Back when that car launched people talked about it in mythical terms. It was like God had reached down and given us the perfect car. The Germans quickly reacted and kicked their ass with the S Class. Today's S Class vs today's LS is a total beatdown.

  • Over a billion dollars invested into the LS400 and over 1.7 million miles of testing, this car was so over built its insane. Cars just aren’t made today with the same standards and quality as an LS

  • I am on my 3rd ls400 in 1 year lol but I got a black on black one for $600 with a few problems like power steering pump, front lower control arm bushings, intermittent no start because of the starter”common issue” I also went ahead and leave the timing belt and water pump and also oil pan gasket, Valve cover gasket’s, and last but not least crankshaft seal spent $500 on parts and did all the work myself so for $1100 I got a bad ass car and it’s also funny because I live in apartments and I had all three of my Ls400s parked next to each other The other two are also bought for really cheap 300 bucks for each fixed and sold them for 2500

  • Kinda salty they did a whole episode on the LS400 when the 99 GS400 has the same motor, better built, more HP, faster, sexier, and more road/track oriented. Neither is a super car just saying the GS400 waxes the LS400 stock for stock any day but forever slept on 🤣
