With a four-generation legacy spanning a quarter of a century, the Lexus LS may not be the riskiest, most cutting-edge vehicle in its class but its devotees don’t mind – the reliability, near perfection of design, and pronounced bent toward comfort and luxury make it a sure bet for those with a preference for the predictable and stalwart.

Key Features

Comfort, luxury, and control collide in this beautiful work of art. With dual-zone climate control, standard moon roof, and four different available choices of leather and wood trim combinations, the LS continues to stand for excellence in the premium vehicle market. The high standards continue on the exterior with minimal body gaps and anti-scratch paint coating, which actually heals itself of minor scratches. Add the Comfort Plus package and you’ll get the benefit of Intuitive Park Assist.

Changes for 2012

There were minimal alterations to this model year, with the additional of a color – Nebula Gray Pearl, and the discontinuation of Smoky Granite Mica.

What We Like

Selling points include higher than typical resale value, as well as the Mark Levinson Reference Surround Sound audio package. Add the Sport package to the LS 460 and you’ve got enhanced braking and improved suspension for an even smoother ride.

What Concerns Us

The hefty price tag could buy slightly better handling in an Audi or BMW. And if staying on top of stylish, progressive-minded design is your priority, the LS might not be what you’re looking for. The conservative, comfort-focused stability is what has kept the Lexus LS steady in the marketplace for so long.

Available Models

Both the LS 460 and LS 460 L feature a 4.6L V8 8-speed automatic with optional AWD. The standard models have 267 lb.-ft. torque, 280 HP, and get 16/24 mpg. The AWD versions sport 244 lb.-ft. torque, 257 HP, and get 16/22 mpg.

Major Recalls

There have been no recalls on the 2012 Lexus LS.

Common Issues

It is virtually impossible to find any significant complaints or problems on this model. There has been one complaint registered online of a problem with the backup camera not coming on, as well as the vehicle rolling forward when put into reverse. However, the service center was not able to reproduce the problem nor figure out what might be causing the issue.

Chevrolet Equinox - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Niles, Illinois
Rigo was great! He got there early, finished the job early, left everything clean. He changed my rear pads and rotors. The original quoted time was 90 minutes, he was done in about 60. He knows what he is doing and I am recommending him to all my friends and coworkers.

Rigo is a maverick hands down. Don’t take your car for work elsewhere. Especially great at Mercedes—this guy knows his profession! I will be using him for everything related to my car going forward.
