After putting 176K on a 1991 Lexus
LS400 that I purchased new, I was
ready to move into another new Lexus.
The LS430 surpasses everything else I
test drove. No regrets! Lexus quality
exceeds all other brands at any price.
QUIET, REALLY QUIET! Great sound
system, ride, view, steering and
brakes. Super pick up for a 4.3L in a
big car. Incredible mileage ~ 25 mpg on
open road, 21 mpg in town.
The drive by wire controls and
interfacing computer are not as
responsive as a throttle cable. The
electronic ignition pick up requires
more cranking than the old high-energy
spark mechanical distributor in the 91
LS400. Odometer and message center get
washed out in bright sunlight.
