2010 Lexus LS 460 Reviews

Vehicle Overview
Lexus' flagship LS 460 full-size sedan is available in standard form and as a limousine-like long-wheelbase LS 460 L model that stretches nearly 203 inches from bumper to bumper — 5 inches more than the standard model. Both sizes are available with rear- or all-wheel drive. Competitors include the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. An optional Advanced Parking Guidance System lets the car park itself and is the car's most intriguing feature.

A hybrid version of the LS 460 L sedan, dubbed LS 600h L, is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.


New for 2010
Lexus adds active front headrests and Safety Connect, a new subscription telematics system, as standard. The available navigation system adds the new Lexus Enform concierge service. The LS also gets a round of styling tweaks and a new Sport Package for the rear-drive LS 460. The package includes lower front and rear spoilers, a firmer air suspension, a unique grille, sport front seats, Black/Saddle leather interior and paddle shifters. The exterior features of the Sport Package also are available as the Appearance Package.

Exterior
Styling of the grille, front bumper, headlights and taillights has been revised for 2010. The side mirrors have integrated turn signals, and the standard 18-inch wheels are a new 10-spoke design.

  • Xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights
  • Available 19-inch wheels


Interior
In the long-wheelbase variant, Lexus aims to replicate the environment of a business jet with optional massaging, 45-degree-reclining rear seats that include an ottoman for leg support. Interior features for either LS model include:
  • Standard power moonroof
  • Available voice-activated navigation system; standard in LS 460 L
  • Available 19-speaker Mark Levinson stereo with 8GB hard drive
  • Available rear flip-down DVD entertainment system on long-wheelbase models
  • Long-wheelbase model offers an optional Executive Class Seating Package with reclining seats, center console with a tray table, ventilation controls and a drink cooler
  • Shorter-wheelbase LS 460 has a three-passenger backseat, while long-wheelbase version has center console and bucket seats


Under the Hood
The 4.6-liter engine uses direct fuel injection along with traditional port fuel injection.
  • 380-hp, 4.6-liter V-8 with 367 pounds-feet of torque
  • Eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Rear- or all-wheel drive
  • Direct injection
  • Electronic power steering
  • Available air suspension with selectable comfort modes


Safety
The optional Advanced Pre-Collision System, which helps detect pedestrians and applies the brakes, now is available with a camera that monitors the orientation of the driver's face. It can activate warnings or apply the brakes if the driver isn't looking ahead for more than a few seconds. Other safety features include:
  • Electronically controlled antilock brakes with brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution
  • Electronic stability system
  • Side-impact airbags for the front seats
  • Side curtain airbags
  • Front knee airbags
  • Available rear-seat side-impact airbags
  • Available Advanced Pre-Collision System

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
