If you're looking for a world-class luxury sedan that bristles with technology and delivers a smooth, quiet, comfortable, safe and reliable ride, the LS 460 should be on your must-drive list. If you have a chauffeur or just want to further pamper your rear-seat passengers, you'll be better served by the even-more spacious and opulently-appointed LS 460 L.
Its reliable with less maintenance only if you take care of it.
A Lexus is a nice car. I never had issues with my car, the car is a smooth ride, very reliable; I've had it about 4 years now and bought it used with not quite as 100, 000 miles; I've had to buy tires and with the engine been so large I've always had to add oil before the oil change. It has a navigation system; fully loaded; white exterior with peanut butter interior I wouldn't trade it for the world unless I get my gs 350 back only reason my kids complain it's too small inside.
Luxury Lexus is a quality ride.
Great luxury car! Smooth comfortable ride. Heated & cooled leather seats. Rear window screen to block sun. Tinted windows. V6 engine with lots of pickup. Lexus is a well built quality car. 3 memory seat buttons. Car computer lets you know everything that is going on with the car. Only downside is the engine requires 9 qts of oil for an oil change which is more costly.
Quality luxury car at an a good price.
Car looks very nice and has a smooth ride. Has all the luxury features such as a good stereo, navigation and leather seats. Very reliable and has good power. There has been no real negatives to the car and I would purchase another one.

What Is The Rating System
We’re rating cars based on Style, Performance, Comfort, Quality, Safety, Features, and

trucks with significant cargo capacity can earn an additional point.

We’ve added an “N/A” rating. For cars without official crash safety ratings or other
authorities, we’ve removed those numbers from the overall score to give readers a better
