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

Review

I traded a 2004 ES330 for an 05 LS430 because of the jerky transmission shifting. The LS isn't much better, at a slow roll, shifting is very erratic. Again, the mechanics say it's "normal". For $60K the transmission (or computer that controls it) shouldn't be "confused". Sadly, my $15K Dodge pick-up shifts much better (seamless) for a fourth of the cost. Big disappointment.

Best Features

Navigation system and Mark Levinson stereo are awesome.

Worst Features

Fix the transmission shifting, or get rid of the computer controlled shifting and go back to the 90s, when the cars were smooth!
