Hyundai Equus vs Lexus LS460

Post by BerkeleyChris » Sat Apr 19, 2014 7:42 am

Do any Bogleheads have hands-on experience in comparing the Hyundai Equus vs Lexus LS460? I would be especially interested to hear from those who have tried both, and picked one of these cars in the past couple of years. Thanks.

One downside to the Equus. It's still not all wheel drive.

Unless you plan to keep it forever or lease, don't even think about the Equus. Look at the total cost of ownership over the period that you expect to keep the car. The Lexus might be cheaper. And frankly, hey, it's a Lexus. The other thing is a Hyundai. (Full disclosure, I own two Lexus vehicles including a 2009 LS460AWD and stipulate to a bias toward Toyota/Honda in general, and Lexus in particular. But I came by it honestly after owning many American and German cars and getting sick of the repair hassles and often terrible low resale value. I had a Volvo too).
