The LS 430 was a step up from my ES 300. The features are abundant, yet fade away fairly quickly. The car is quiet and extremely comfortable. The front seat gives the feeling of driving a smaller car, but the rear seat passengers have all the room anyone could want. I enjoy the nav system and the Mark Levinson stereo is fantastic. Suprisingly, the car handles extremely well in the snow and slop of a Cleveland winter. The VSC and "snow" button do make a difference in the handling and performance. The gas mileage is something I should have paid a bit more attention to. I get about 17 - 19 in the city and 24 on the highway. My twin engine boat came a close 2nd in fuel burn!
I really like the parking assist, nav system, radar cruise control and heat and cool seats (front and rear). The auto door closers are an attention getter when I have passengers. The auto rear sun shade too! The only thing missing is a personal valet to live in the trunk.
Have as standard the cool box refrigerator and tire pressure monitoring.
