Review

The automatic heating system and heated seats take long time to warm up. When the vent is closed, you suffocate. Very rigid suspension, You feel every bump on the road. My Lexus has a mind of its own. It accelerates and brakes with its own mind. Service department said both brake and engine control by a computer. The computer has a mild delay which is normal according to the mechanics.


Best Features

Lexus has the best GPS. Folding mirrors is good feature.


Worst Features

Better suspension.

Review

Owned my 2005 LS 430 for three months and find myself loving it more everyday. I actually went to the dealership to buy a new GS 300 but I drove the LS 430 and I was so impressed that I purchased it.


Best Features

Keyless access is great. Love the Mark Lev. sound system. Ride is quiet and comfortable.


Worst Features

Fix the lag when you hit the gas. It tends to take a second to "kick into gear" when pushed hard, but would still buy it again.

Review

I'm an octogenarian so when I give up driving myself I know the rear seat has plenty of room and comfort.


Best Features

The glove like leather texture of the seats says class loud and clear


Worst Features

Glove compartment needs redesign.

Review

This is the best vehicle I have owned. I traded an S-Type Jag and there is no comparison. the room and quietness is fantastic. The ride is very smooth and the quality of the car seems to be excellent.


Best Features

Interior luxury features like the oscillating a/c vents to the heated and cooled front seats


Worst Features

Exterior styling is not as unique as some other cars.
