After 9mos. of ownership, I'm still amazed how a 2004 can still outrank & perform 2009 Mercedes, Audi, BMW, & Infiniti. The LS430 is the car to own (Period). Good on gas, handles swell for a big car, instant acceleration when the light turns green, great on braking, awesome reliability like no other; even though in Chicago winter snow tires could help... although u may do fine without. This car is very quiet, comfortable, quality is a 10-of-10. Mark Levinson sound system-"The Best", Navigation is easy to work with. Privacy rear shade, heated-and cooled seats (front and rear). Dual Climate Control, nearly 300hp, HID lights, LED rear lights. Very low wind noise at 70mph. Also holds its value.
Driving and Owning this car is already a 10-of-10. Best best feature is when this car is washed and waxed, this gleams, shimmers with beauty...better than BMW, Mercedes, and others. I once owned a BMW 540i, but this is no comparison. LS430 is the best. Never mind 500hp & 600hp can't use it anyway!
Maybe 19" wheels, or a bigger glove box. But overall it's a Fantastic Car. I really enjoy driving it.
