What Owners Say

"With a 382 horsepower V8, an 8 speed automatic and rear wheel drive - this is an amazing road car. Passing at 60, 80 or a 100 is effortless. Plus - it gets 27+ MPG cruising at 80. It's quiet, most comfortable, ice-cold AC and the live traffic navigation is surprisingly accurate. It's also been maintenance free."

CHRIS S., CA (2007 Lexus LS)

"Good: The ability to move about easily as needed on city street level and on freeways."

J C., CA (2007 Lexus LS)

"Absolutely Perfect in all ways. Have kept this car much longer than cars in the past due to it's reliability & pleasure to drive."

BERNARD S., FL (2007 Lexus LS)

"It accelerates to 0 mph in about 5 sec which is quicker than the Mercedes E320 that I owned before it. On the other hand, the Mercedes handled better than my Lexus LS. Although the Lexus LS handles well enough."

Don B., FL (2007 Lexus LS)

Curt C., NY (2007 Lexus LS)

"For the price paid, I expected the Lexus to be very quite. But to my disappointment the wind noise at the driver's side was so bad that my sensitive ears could not bear it. The dealers replaced the front door glasses and seals twice but the wind noise is still noticeable. There was a constant rattle under the dash board and it got fixed by replacing the entire unit. The installed navigation system software was so outdated it failed to recognize streets that were built decades ago. Lexus dealer w..."

What Owners Say

"Eye catching"

Anonymous, SC (2007 Lexus LS)

"I am experiencing very poor quality with the interior vinyl around the dash and doors. Vinyl is cracking and filthy, and in strong heat it sticks to your hands and some even comes off under your fingernails. Lexus is aware and said it will be covered under warranty, but they do not say when. Problem was reported over 2 years ago"
