2003 Lexus LS 430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


Review

the facts are that most people that
purchase and drive the ls430 are not
as familiar with the workmanship of
luxury cars. the ls is a reliable
vehicle but the overall workmanship
show several areas that corners are
cut to save$. the dash in my car was
4 different colors. lexus admitted
the problem but did nothing about it.
Promised to fix it but never did. the
driver door rattled from the
beginning, never fixed. hinges and
inside of truck were not painted to
match car color. the list goes on so
take a close look at the car paying
particular attention to the exposed
screws at the bottom of the door sills.

Review

I spend a lot of time on the run and
the LS 430 eases the road's wear and
tear on my body! This car is like a
small piece of "heaven" on the
highway.....


Best Features

Smooth ride, quiet engine, automatic windshield wipers(if small amt. rain, they just come on). Conservative appeal (body style)


Worst Features

None! This is my 2nd Lexus (1st was GS 300). LS430 is the ultimate in driving pleasure...........

Review

The LS430 2001 model is my third LS
Class Lexus. These three models (the
first two were LS400s) spanned an
ownership period of twelve years. I call
them "the Lexus years"!!!

Rain, hail, sleet, snow or brilliant
sunshine, the big Lexus just keeps going
no matter what!!! Once in Boston, buried
under six feet of snow and left for
three weeks, it started first time when
dug out of the snow.

Oh yes - if you want that most important
motoring asset "peace of mind"
the GET IT!!!!!!!






Best Features

1. Smooth effortless engine/drivetrain. 2. Luxury interior. 3. Acceleration and high speed cruising. 4. Fun to drive fast. 5. Silent inside.


Worst Features

1. Re-design the rear to give more Aston Martin Vanquish like look. Needs rear "haunches".
