Description: The LS series is powered by a 3.0-liter, 200-hp DOHC V-6(for the LS6) or a 3.9-liter, 220-hp DOHC V-8(for the LS8).Available with a 5-speed automatic or a 5-speed manual transmission. ABS is standard.
Summary: I paid $11K for a 4 year old - 36K original Km LS V6, added another $4.5 K in engine mods(including turbo & dry nitrous), extreme handling suspension, 18" X 9.5" billet wheels and BFG Z rated tires.
It now outperforms the best sedans and coupes from Germany, Japan, and North America and still gets great gas mileage. All for under $15K.
P.S. Best E.T. to date 11.50 @ 108.26 mph in 90 degree weather with the AC& CD on and my wife driving.
No skid pad data yet, but planned for 2010

Year / Model Reviewed: 2005 LS V6
Strengths: Comfort, ride, power, design, handling.
Weaknesses: Sound system, space for odds.
Summary: Awesome car. All the luxuries for a good price. No problems so far. Get lots of compliments about car. Love it!
Summary: The vehicle gets poor gas mileage, an average of 21mpg. The master cylinder for the brakes leaks and has been replaced 3 times. They say fluid is being pushed out of the cap of the master cylinder. The heat shelds under the car rattle. Large blind spots make the vehicle hard to drive.I looked at a Honda and I will get one soon.
Weaknesses: Short on storage in cabin and trunk. Starting problem experience.
Summary: Good value. Stylish, good ride and performance for the money. Comfortable to drive. Have had on several long trips. Have 7K miles now. Have begun to notice hot start problem a few times. Takes 2 to 3 tries to start after shutting down after a drive. Otherwise satisfied.
