2008 Lexus LS600hL
What’s with all the complaints? If it’s laid-back smoothness you’re looking for, the LS600hL is where it’s at.
The Lexus LS has gotten a bunch of flack from us journalists, mostly because it’s so distant and removed that its driver’s relationship with the road is no closer than its passengers’. As much as I love drivers’ cars (and, oh do I ever), Lexus never pretended that the LS was to appeal to enthusiasts. The LS is supposed to appeal to their antitheses – people who don’t want to be bothered with the task of driving at all. I mean, why else would this thing park itself?
