Read the Honest John Review

  • Lexus LS 600h (2006 - 2012)
    Hybrid technology delivers V12-like performance with V6-diesel economy. Refined and supremely plush. Almost fanatical quality standards.
  • Lexus LS430 (2003 - 2007)
    Refined, comfortable express with plenty of room, bags of luxury kit and the sturdiest build quality this side of an underground nuclear shelter.
