Not worth the money
By Peter Cusato on
2004 Lexus GS 430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)
It's comfortable and reliable but handles like a bus and is marginally responsive. Bridgestone 17" tires are the noisiest I ever heard. Missing a number of features like, rain sensing wipers, a passenger side mirror that drops in reverse and the heated seats have but one level. My wife's 2000 ES has 2 levels. Has perpetual rattles in dash that dealer can't cure and a permanent stain on the rear seat from a tire being placed there, Lexus central was no help with either issue. It gets you back and forth smoothly and reliably, but at $50K plus there should be more from the car and Lexus service. Cars costing 30/40% less are more exciting and just as reliable.
NAV is as good as they come, Levinson radio is tops, interior finishes are tops
Go back to the 400 drive train, 430 is a slug. Improve suspension for handling. Add the toys found is less expensive cars
