The very good and the not so good
By Jack Johnson on
2004 Lexus LS 430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 6A)
Let me start off by saying this is a very, very well put together car. It's fast, quiet has great electronics and the build quality is top notch. Very good gas mileage for such a strong V8. No rattles or squeaks. What it is not is exciting to drive. If you like the old American Caddy ride, this it the best ever. If you want to feel the road, have some steering wheel feel and be able to corner, this is not the best choice. If I had a driver, I would love to sit in the back. For those who like driving dynamics, you may prefer the Euro cars.
Excellent sound system. Good acceleration. Gas mileage. Easy to use electronics. Build quality.
The seats are too flat and not as supportive as the MB or BMW. The steering is to loose and the car floats a bit. They should offer a true sport version with firm seats, tighter suspension and more direct steering. A bigger engine to compete with MB would help too.
