I have a 1990 LS 400 (1st year model that came out in late 1989). While I only have about 165,000 miles on it, I have heard of early 1990's LS 400's going to 400,000 miles.
I am biased towards the LS for obvious reasons (I think ConsumerReports.com is too). I took great care of my "white with silver bottom" LS, as this photo (click on it to elarge) shows near the bottom of my blog post:

#51 of 56 Ls 400 steering column problem
Jun 07, 2008 (11:39 am)
I just purchased a 1995 lexus Ls 400. It has about 150k miles on and it drives great . The problem I have with it is the steering is stuck in a raised position. It track retracts and extends fine I just canít get it out of the raised position. Depressing the down electronic lever produces a grinding noise. IS THERE A MECHINICAL RELEASE. Can someone please help me.

There is a Lexus TSB that might apply to this, one of the sensor/servomotor "molex" style connections is under too much "sideways" stress. But "grinding" probably indicates otherwise. It is not a complex nor altogether difficult DIY task to remove the stearing column covers and have a looksee. Thats what I did to lubricate the servo gears and while I was in there I did the TSB.

You can go to the dealer and they will show you for FREE! I forgot how it is done due to it has been so so long. Very easy. They may can tell you over the phone.

My dad had a 1991 LS 400 that he drove 503,000 and only changed the oil and filters in the thing. He did do the required timing belt changes as well. He traded it for a LS 430 and that damn thing can't go 60,000 miles with a major problem. I have had it to 2 dealers and they can't fix the keyless entry system.
