1996 Lexus Ls400


Recommended Posts

First of all I am sorry I have jumped in on other peoples subject. I am not too good at this. I believe I am now in the right spot.


I now am the owner of a 96 Lexus LS400 with 94K miles on it. I know the original owner and I have just checked with the Lexus dealer. He sent me the maintenance reports and also told me that this car has been well maintained. He said the timing belt was changed at 88K. It has some little (I Think) issues and one big issue. It needs a paint job! It has been sitting by the ocean for a few years and the side facing the ocean is faded. I asked the Lexus dealer what a paint job would cost and he said 5 to 6 thousand dollars. That's out of my league. Has anyone gone to a good auto body shop and had their car painted? I really don't want to go to a Macco as I heard they don't do that good.

The minor problems I have had so far is the needle on the speedometer stopped working, and then it starts working. I did renew some of your post. One said you could remove and repair it yourself. Was it hard?

The other problem I think I just fixed -don't know how but it now works. We could not roll down the passenger's windows. Where it now appears to work does that sound like a lose wire? Or does this work off a fuse.

Any info you can give me will be a great help. My husband drives a Cadillac and he has been driving the Lexus and says it is a really nice riding car.
