2005 Lexus LS 430 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Problems: 1) drivers seat not comfortable - feels like you sit in a hole and perforated seats don't permit you to move easily. 2) No good way to run XM antenna in the trunk. 3) Hard to see orange letters on display (too small). 4) Ride too hard with low profile tires.


Best Features

General design of car.


Worst Features

Note my complaints!

This is a truly great automobile. Quality is unsurpassed, trim, fit are done right. The engine is the finest I have ever driven--quite powerful and never shows strain. only regret is I didn't reach this level sooner!


Best Features

Being able to shift, power- responsiveness, fun to drive


Worst Features

Heated steering wheel, more hp at least 75 more

This is my 2nd LS430. I put almost 90K miles on my first LS and never had one problem. Ride, interior are excellent but what keeps me coming back to this car is the quality and features. Outstanding car


Best Features

Bluetooth, nav system, Mark Levinson audio


Worst Features

Would be interested to see this model as a hybrid.

Review

It's like driving your living room. Nothing could be more comfortable to drive. Lexus has thought of everything and then some. The electronics are amazing. I was not overly impressed with the Mark Levinson radio which is an expensive item and must come with the Navigation. The service and delivery does live up to the Lexus reputation.


Best Features

The comfort of the seats.


Worst Features

Make the radio and the navigation separate options.

Review

This car doesn't only run perfect, it seems to glide. this is the 2nd LS430 that i have bought new, the only problem I have found you just can't go back to driving any other car. you are hooked. The gas milage isn't great but 28 mpg on the hiway isnt bad for a car of this size.


Best Features

navigation system, rotating headlights


Worst Features

Can't think of any
