Most Dependable Vehicle on the Planet, Period. by Robert, AZ on 04/22/2012. Trim: 1999 Lexus LS 400, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: 1999 LS 400. Lexus Quality, Dependability. Probably one of the finest vehicles ever made on the planet! Smooth ride and transfer of power. Quiet, dependable. Keep up on regular maintenence and will last a long time. Engine won BEST 10 ENGINES several years in a row. Some say it will last 400-500K miles. 13 years old rust free but still looks brand new and the design does NOT look dated. The NEWER Lexus LS460's (AND ALL NEWER LEXUS') DO NOT have the same ride. Suspension was tuned to handle better ,and they do, but ride quality suffers. I guess you can't have both. For this reason alone the older LS400/LS430 models are BETTER than the new ones!
Cons: None really. Some dealer maintenence/repairs can be expensive, but not as crazy as other German brands.
Overall review: Buy an older pre-owned LS400 from rust free Arizona or California. Find one with low original miles and do some research. Also, search out and find a mechanic you can trust. This holds true even at the Lexus dealer. Don't just drop off your vehicle and let any tech touch your ride. An established relationship with a qualified mechanic you can trust is key to quality repairs and saving on unnecessary repairs!
