Having owned BMW's and Jaguars, my LS430 is a welcome relief from frequent unscheduled visits to the service department. The LS430 might not have the style of a Jag or the sharp handling of a BMW, but is a great compromise of those features with confidence-inspiring reliability. Lexus has included as standard equipment, many details not found in other luxury cars. At a starting price of around $55,000, it is the best bargain on the market.
Felt wings on the inside of the front seat cushions to prevent items from falling between the seat and console, sunshade behind the rear view mirror, Smart Access keyless lock/unlock/start, intuitive controls, rear sunshade, smooth powerful engine and transmission, roomy rear seat, quality interior.
Less conservative styling for next generation, but not as radical as BMW's current design theme.
