I wish Lexus would offer a LS with a V12 engine. I'd buy it. The S65 and S65 Coupe (former CL-65) are great V12 cars, although not even near as being reliable as a Lexus. A totally newly designed...

Every once in a while I see de-badged cars on the streets. I personally think it's idiotic. The cars look incomplete, it's like removing art from art. The designers went through time and thought to...

It's my understanding that the valve recall was due to springs being made of a material that was brittle and could break under specific conditions. They changed the springs, problem solved. Later...

Good price, I've paid the same back in december of 2006 and my car is not the "F" - didn't exist back then, and today, after all those years, it is still completely problem-free. As the Yen goes back...

Test drive it, take it to a trusted mechanic or hire a professional inspector ($100/$200 or so) - in case you're afraid. Those cars are bullet proof but of course it depends on how the previous owner...

I also don't like the current LS design. That's why I didn't upgrade. The '07-'09 models do look much better in my opinion. I don't see many on the streets, but when I see one far away on the rear...

Screw CAFE. I want a twin turbo V-12 LS to compete with the S65. Putting a V6 in the LS would be outrageous, a sin, rubbish, an atrocity.

A reliable V12 with monster torque would be THE bomb. I'd...

That stupid spindle grill is what gave me pause from upgrading. Not that my '07 isn't perfect but every once in a while I get the munchies. But this latest "new" face lift was ridiculous IMHO.

"Years to avoid" is a Mercedes Benz thing... The LS cars of any year are pretty much rock solid if their maintenance has been done as usual.

Well, it's hard to believe that the Japanese engineers would have hard coded recirculation when outside temp is equal or above 75F. If they did it, that's a big mistake.

As for the A/C:

If you set the temperature too low (or even to "LO") it will always default to recirculation and stay there.

To avoid this, what I do is, for example, if the outside temp is...
