2003 Lexus LS 430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The only thing this car needs is 4 wheel drive. Otherwise, this car has everything you could possibly want. This is my second Lexus (LS 400). I bought both used. This one I bought for 22k and 60,000 miles. It will easily last to 200k and only go into shop for routine maintance.


Best Features

Navigation, AC, seats, trunk, comfort, room, cooled and heated seats, quiet.


Worst Features

4 wheel drive.

Review

I have had a 96 LS, 2000 RX, and a 2003 GS. This is by far my favorite Lexus. I am 6'2 and about 300 lbs and this car has an abundant amt of room. Navigation is awesome. My son won't stop playing with it! My only issue is paint chips on the front. This is a great car!


Best Features

Power, room, comfort, reliability.


Worst Features

All wheel drive.

Review

The look, the feel you get when you drive this car. The ultra luxury Lexus has all the gadgets. Heated/cooled seats front and back, massages, reclining back seats. And don't forget the cooler in the back for your drinks. Wow, this is just the beginning.


Best Features

All the gadgets you get with a great price!


Worst Features

All-wheel drive instead of trac-control.

Review

This is the most quiet vehicle I have ever been in. Not good in snow because of the rear wheel drive. Other than snow the handling is excellent. The controls should be simplified. My wife hates the confusion which is OK with me as she prefers to drive the Ford Explorer! I just replaced the brakes, rotors and tires. This is the first money spent in the 2 years I owned the car.


Best Features

GPS


Worst Features

Simplify the controls. Get rid of rear wheel drive.

Review

Over all a good vehicle Saved my life Had an accident and all personnel at scene said I should have been dead. I rolled down a 20 foot embankment and took out 25 feet of concrete fence. I broke a finger nail and have bruises and a deep laceration on my right arm. A large animal ran out in front of me at night on a rural road. Instead of hitting it I swerved.


Best Features

Heated and air contioned seata


Worst Features

I would like to see a cell phone plug be put in place in order that you do not have to keep ashtray open.
