Just bought a used 05' LS 430 (55k miles), tremendous condition and certified through Lexus (3yr/100k bumper to bumper warranty). Wow! what a car! Previously owned a Porsche. Different types of vehicles, but the LS is an overall winner. 24- 26 mpg on the highway, tons of space, baby seat in back and front passenger can still stretch out. Quiet, powerful, smooth as silk ride. An 05' LS more reliable than most brand new vehicles. Major head turner. Would highly recommend one.
Climate control works to perfection, smooth transmission, tons of interior room, birds-eye maple wood trim is outstanding. Tight turning radius. All the creature comforts. Reliability ratings cannot be matched in any class, 200k mile vehicle.
AC front seats are just OK, would definitely buy certified pre-owned from a dealer, this is a $70k + car new, they check it out from top to bottom and you get peace of mind with the warranty.
