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


Review

The car gets great gas mileage. Looks a little boxy, but the wind tunnel numbers give it away as very aerodynamic. Love the seating the ride, it is flawless. I can go 5 hours without stopping, listening to an audio book, alone. Hardly realize I have done anything because it is so even inside, temperature wise, and so perfectly quiet, that I really am in "car heaven". No one would ever be disappointed in this car who is mature, and loves value and excellent luxury and fine details. I have had some expensive repairs, door locks being about $600 a door, and the carbon canister being $800 (all of these prices include labor). But, overall, the car has very low maintenance costs for 180,000 miles

Review

This is the best car I ever had. Almost 3 years and no repairs at all. Bought with 139k miles, now 155k. Love it.
On the highway, it glides like a king in comfort and style. Very reliable.

Review

Your reading this because your interested in a Lexus LS 430. The same thing I did last year when I was thinking about purchasing a used LS 430 with 250,000 miles . At the time I owned a 1997 LS 400 with 260,000 miles and a 1991 LS 400 with almost 340,000 miles on it. And bought my mother in law a 1997
ES 300. I know a little about Lexus automobiles. After driving LS 400's for hundred of thousand's of miles , I was not prepared for how much SMOOTHER and QUIETER the LS 430 has been improved over the LS 400's.
I'm writing this review a year and half after buying my black LS 430 because last night I had an hour drive from a friends house and still couldn't believe how nice this car is now with 271,000 miles on it. When I pulled off the highway , I checked the in dash fuel mileage gauge, 30.1 mpg . Earlier in the week I had a 3 hr. highway drive and the gauge showed 28.7 mpg. when I had stopped. Huge trunk compared to my LS 400's. I'm now looking for a LS 430 sport and no I never selling this one.

Review

I bought my 2001 used with 52,000 miles. It drives better and feels better then every car I have ever driven. Even though it is 2001, it is still state of the art.
Downside, repairs cost a fortune. new front wind shield, $2500. Door Locks, $1200 each. New Computer $1700
