Great Car, but not as roomy as the LS 460

by Cardinal from Fort Worth, Texas | May 12, 2020

The Mouse is nice, but waaaayyyyy too much work. I don't know who came up with this idea! The ride is nice but not nearly as smooth as the 2016 LS. It floated like a cloud. I am happy with the car, just a bit surprised that Lexus would not make a car that looks this good more user friendly. V-6 does everything you need it to do. gas mileage s great!

Amazing Car...

by GMan from Austin, Texas | November 14, 2019

Upgraded from a 2015 LS460L to a 2018 LS500 Executive model which is our 4th LS and 6th Lexus in the family . The car is amazing and has a lot of tech in it. The drive is more sporty compared to the older LS model but it still has the Lexus smoothness. We noticed that the interior of the new LS500 is smaller than my older 2015 LS460L even though the car is an inch longer. It did take us a little while to get used to all the control options in the LS500 which was easier to get to on the older model. Overall, we are happy with the car and look forward to enjoying it for a while.

Lexus LS 500 Turns Heads

by Ron-Car Enthusiast from Sacramento | September 20, 2019

Bought the FSport. For a big sedan, it surprisingly handles really well. There is the turbo lag from a stop, but once it gets rolling, the twin turbos really accelerate hard and doesn’t seem to stop. The ride is not as floaty as some of the Cadillacs I’ve owned in the past. Also owning a Porsche Boxster comparing, the LS cornering is excellent. This is one of my favorite cars.
