Are those repairs typical for a new LS460? I think maybe I should pass if it looks like it started out with tons of issues.

Seems like a lot of issues to me? May have been a lemon. Should I pass this one up? Thanks!

Keep in mind that some of the "scarier" issues in that report are recalls that were performed, and not problems per se.

Thanks. Well I could not tell which were recalls and which were service issues. Just seemed like a lot for a Lexus LS. I always think of trouble free when I think of Lexus LS, but this seems out of the normal. I guess I will walk away from this one. Sad because these cars are hard to find here, especially the "L" model which is what I really prefer.

Welcome! How was the Phaeton? I was seriously considering one of those until I read some stories about parts availability and issues that could leave you with very expensive repair bills. Beautiful cars, though.

Stay away from the air suspension. It's $5K just for the parts

I have heard of some concerns such as Acceleration problems where it feels like it only has half of the power and the valve issue or recall. The one we're looking at is an LS460L, black on black, i think its "fully loaded" because it has the rear seat backs that recline, 4 zone air conditioning, heated and vented rear seats, power rear window shades and radar cruise control. obviously there's a lot more features. the car has 83,000 miles and they're asking $30,000. Is that a good price? should i be concerned about the mileage? Thank you in advance!!!
