I total love my Lexus 430! I have only had the car a month but it is hands down the best car I have ever owned. Just sold an Infiniti M45 haited the car. I have owned Mercedes and Cadillac but Lexus is hands down the best for the money. The Ultra Luxury package is awesome!!! You would pay 15K more on a Benz with the same equipment. I also got the Lexus warranty for 7 years and 100K! How can you go wrong! If you are looking for the best ride you have ever experienced for a reasonable price please look into the LS430. You can't go wrong!!!!!!!!!
Navigation, comfort of the seats, head and leg room, stereo is awesome, enjoyment of driving the vehicle
Only suggestion I would like to see is Massage seats for the front!! Mercedes has it, and on the Ultra Luxury for the money the 2 front seats should have massage! Also a control to cut off the rear entertainment!! Kids drive u crazy hitting all the buttons. Also provide splash guards for rear
This was to be my retirement car, you know, keep forever. Got the Ultra. Bad choice. Took delivery out of front alignment. Turns out I discovered air suspension was causing a strong lean (2" shorter on right"). Didn't notice until sitting on a perfectly flat surface. Should have gotten the standard suspension. Took dealer three times to get right, had to make call to Japan.
Navigation is best around. Except my August 2002 purchase was only updated through 2001. Novelty of voice command Nav wore off after a few weeks. Regular Nav in my GS (not voice command) is just as good.
Loved the Lexus Link (OnStar). Was not happy that they did not offer an integrated phone in So Cal (even though it's in the brochure), and now they have taken the Lexus Link out of the 2004/5 models.
After owning two luxury automobiles, a
Mercedes and a Jaguar, it was
difficult for me to believe that I
could ever own anything as
exceptional. However, based on my
research, the reviews and testimony of
friends and collegues; I decided, for
my next purchase, to consider the
Lexus LS 430. This car has exceeded my
expectations in its performance and
handling and smoothness, and the
technology is absolutely amazing. It
is unbelievable and in a class by it
self. If there is anything more
outstanding than the Lexus LS 430, I
would not even want to know because I
am sure I could not afford it.
The user friendly technology,
especially the navigation system.
At 6'5" and 290lbs., I find it difficult
to find a truly comfortable car. Forget
the exemplery reliability of this
vehicle...the ride is beyond any
possible expectation. More amazing is
the fact that the ride is exactly the
same after 40,000 miles! Responsiveness
and handling are excellent and the
service is unmatched. Cannot imagine
every buying a car elsewhere. I am more
Complete adjustability of the cockpit;
ridiculus turning radius (wonderful);
navigation and Levinson sound system;
comfort; surprising fuel economy
