  1. I am curious to know how everyone's gas mileage is. I am again considering a 1998 - 2000 LS400 and want to get an idea of the gas mileage everyone gets. Also, in your response, please specify city or highway driving or mixed. Also, what else should I look out for in a search for an LS? Don't need to get into really specific items, just a few bullet points would be great. Thanks for your help!
  2. WOW!! You guys are great!!! Thanks for all the help!! I'm going to head to my Lexus dealer this weekend and start looking. This is just the beginning of my search, so, like I said, It'll be a while.... I will come back with questions on specific ones I see throughout the next few months. I hope to make a purchase within the next 5 to 10 months. I am a very picky shopper when it comes to cars. If there is one tiny thing wrong with it, I won't buy it. It took me 1.5 years to find a GREAT 93 Benz and a little over 2 to find a GREAT 99 Benz. But what do I need with two almost EXACTLY the same cars?!? I can't wait to go Lexus shopping! It's going to be a fun couple of months!! Thanks so much!! :) :)
  3. The 2000 LS400 is no longer available under the Lexus CPO program and Nav updates are no longer available for the 98-00 LS400. If Nav is important to you, consider an LS430 or an aftermarket Nav system. Thanks for your help. I'm looking to find on on ebay, or from one of my local Lexus dealers. I don't necessarily need the car to be CPO, but that would be nice. Money is a bit of an issue so i don't want to spend more than $17,000. I don't NEED the navigation, but I def. want it! I would also like a Nakamichi (Spelling) radio. They sound so perfect! I just started my search, and it will probably be at least 5 months before I actually buy. I always wait until I can find the best deal..... Thanks for all your help! and if anyone is interested in my 93 Benz, let me know!! It truly is one of the most beautiful cars ever built, at least thats my opinion..... Thanks again! -Dante
  4. Hello, I'm new to this forum and was refered here by a member on my Mercedes Forum. I currently drive a 1993 Mercedes S500/500SEL and a 1999 Mercedes S500 Grand Edition and want to sell my 1993 and purchase a 1999 or 2000 Lexus LS400. I need some advice on what to stay away from, and what a good price to pay would be. I want a Black one with either tan or Black interior and a wood steering wheel!! I also want a Navigation system and chrome Lexus symbols, not gold. I'd like to find one with less than 80,000 miles, and in perfect shape cosmetically, (I know all Lexus are perfect mechanically). What do you think a fair price to pay would be? Also, is there anything I should check before purchasing one? Common problems? Any information anyone can give me would be great!! I love the look of the Lexus LS400 and the repair bills will be a nice treat from my Mercedes.... haha I look forward to hearing from you!! Thanks in advance! -Dante I've also included a picture of my 1993 Mercedes S500 just incase anyone here is interested..... Although, I doubt it....
