Im married to lexus forever!!

Vehicle: 2001 Lexus LS 430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)

I bought this car after my 1999 LS got totaled. I also had a 93 LS, 98 GS, and 93 ES before. All great and reliable cars, with the ES being the least reliable if that even makes sense. I was in love with the 99, really loved that car, but after picking this one up in New Jersey at Lawrenceville Lexus, its just all around greatness. Purchased in December at 112k, it is now at 120k. Besides the 120k I just did, all I've changed was the front brakes, rotors. Very comfortable, economical(20-24 MPG HWY/CITY combined), fast when you need it to, and hugs the road pretty well. The only quirk I have is the Mark Levinson speakers. The front speakers have blown, and I replaced sub with Polk Audio




Still going - best car

Its 2012 and my 2001 LS430 is still running strong. For all who have the Levinson system, its great until the speaker rattles. Don't buy a new one, you can have it re-coned for $40.00 rather than $400.00 for a new one. I've done that twice and replaced an o2 sensor. Aside from regular maintenance those are the only issues I've ever really had. I have a buddy who racked up 280k on his and still going. I'm now at 160k and have no plans for a new car. Before this, I was a euro lux driver. I'll never go back.




Best there is!

Amazing. Currently have almost 130k on car. Owned for 3 years with no issues whatsoever. Great for trips. Get 25-30mpg on hwy. City is 14-18mpg. Wish I could have splurged for the 05-06 with the newer styling. Would def do it all over again.
