2004 Lexus LS 430 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

My car is my office. I am always proud to invite my clients to ride in my car. It is comfortable, reliable and best of all BEAUTIFUL. I have been driving Lexus since 1991 and will never go back to my other luxury automobiles of the past! Thanks for keeping your standards above the rest!


Best Features

Reliability, comfort, and compliments by anyone who rides in my vehicle! Service is outstanding!


Worst Features

Keep on doing what you are doing!

2004 Lexus LS 430 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Very few people are aware how well this sporty model compares to BMWs & M-Benz. Handling & roadholding are superb. 18" tires stay glued to the road, regardless of undulations & nothing fazes it, inspiring enormous confidence. Unlike the std. model's extra-plush ride, you know exactly what the road surface is like under you. Feedback is firm, but not harsh, making the driving experience very Lexus-like. However, you must enjoy sporty handling; if pure luxury is your thing, you probably shouldn't order this suspension. But if you want a great car that is also great fun to drive, this one is for you. Given 500hp, this would be the Best of the Best!


Best Features

Unmatched build quality, perfect seats, lovely interior, best factory stereo period, no key req'd (w/Smart Key), sonar parking assist (when in unfamiliar places), rain-sensitive wipers work by themselves! A sense of precision permeates everything; you know this is the best car made!


Worst Features

Cup holders are NOT as good as my '91; roofline is 1"-2" too high. Needs: longer hood, sleeker styling (like the coming Benz CLS), 350 std. horsepower with 500hp performance option. These improvements would make this car a world-beater at a bargain price.

Review

Because of a decline in Mercedes quality I traded my trouble proned E class for a new Lexus LS 430. It's a fantastic car! Only car I've purchased in 35 years that had zero defects. Two months later , still zero. Love it.


Best Features

Quality, lack of problems.


Worst Features

Styling could be better especially the front.

Review

This auto is one of the best!! Lexus has done a fantastic job in conyinuing their pursuit of perfection! Having owned and driven this car for 9 months I have a keen idea of just how good this car is. Don't do the BMW or Benz until you have driven this car or you will be sorry


Best Features

The Nav system is a must and the SMART KEY is way too cool

Review

3rd Lexus purchase. The are the most reliable cars I have ever owned! (40 and counting)Service is OUTSTANDING, although it hasn't been back since the 1,000 checkup! The ultra has more for the passenger than the person that pays for it, is the only complaint. ( My kids LOVE IT!)


Best Features

NOT HAVING ANY PROBLEMS


Worst Features

Larger wheel package for the ultra for better handling
