If there's one thing Lexus has perfected over the years, it's the luxury experience.

But if there's one area where Lexus continues to fail, it's with infotainment.

Both of these attributes come to a head in the 2018 LS 500.

Lexus' latest big-body sedan is so good in so many ways, but I feel it's being held back from its full potential.

I can't lay all the blame on the infotainment, mind you -- just most of it.

If you want a large car with character, the expressive design will work in your favor.

If the Lexus F Sport trim were merely an appearance package with bigger brakes, that'd be fine. But it also adds sport-tuned adaptive dampers that actually prevent the LS 500 from showing off its max potential.

Even with the F Sport trim, the LS 500 is plenty plush, soaking up bad roads with nary a peep making its way through to the occupants.

I find that the best way to drive the LS 500 is to ignore the sportier drive modes and just leave it in Comfort all the time.
