1994 Lexus LSA 4.0-litre double overhead cam V8 that provided sufficient motivation for the LS400 to race to 100 km/h in a tick over eight seconds with a top speed of 240 km/h. It was fuel-injected, had four valves per cylinder, and pumped out a peak of 190 kW and 360 Nm.a reliability mean there is little that goes wrong with the LS400. Add to that owners who have the wherewithal to look after them, keep them clean and have them properly serviced and they can be bought with confidence.
Even so look carefully for proof of service, particularly a service book with verifiable entries confirming service by a credible service agent. Check engine and transmission vitals and look for fluids that are old and in need of replacement, a sure sign that servicing has been neglected.
Check body carefully for colour mismatches, crook panel fit, variable gaps between panels, which are a sure sign of repairs. Check alloy wheels for damaged caused by being driven into kerbs, and look further for suspension damage if wheels are heavily scarred.
Chris Smithbought a 1993 LS400 and loved it for its quality, engine, quietness, comfort and appointments, ride and exterior design, and has no problem with its perceived lack of prestige. His only problem (odo now says 190,000 km) was the replacement of the power steering oil reservoir at 100,000 km for around $1400. He says they are tremendous second hand value.
