Great car to drive, with both power and
comfort. Handles very well in all
situations and has the power to move
you out when need be.
Excellent sound system...upgraded.
Disappointed that the 300 and 430 look
alike on the exterior. Would have
liked to seen a difference.
Power of the 430. Reminds me of
the "muscle cars" of the '60's.
Sound system within a quiet ride.
Body style doesn't fit my eye...would
like to see a difference between the
300 and 430.
With Lexus you get more than a car, you
get a dealer network that puts all
others to shame. You also get a support
network and company that is first class.
I have owned/leased four Lexus. I have
also owned and/or leased Mercedes S
class and an Infinity Q45. All of these
are fine automobiles, but not in the
Lexus class. Lexus has raised the bar in
customer service and vehicle quality.
I have the full package on my LS 430 --
DVD navigation, laser cruise, Mark
Levinson sound system. The integration
of the GPS and mapping software is
better than that of the US military.
This is a wonderfully intuitive automobile.
Hard to improve. Certainly there are new
gadgets to add. I would like to
interface the navigation system with my
Palm for trip planning away from the
car's touch screen. I would like toplay
MP3 files (CDs) through the sound system.
I have owned a 2000 E450 & 2003 E320.
Did not like first, though I would like
second. Had lots of mechanical
(electrical) problem. Wife has a LS430
and we both loved it. I traded 2003
E320 for another LS 430. Now we both
have one and both of us love them. No
problems at all. It makes you look for
a reason to go somewhere.
Great ride, no noise, quality built,
plenty of power.
Could have nicer wheels but thats not
so important to us.
Traded from 2001 GS 430 and this car
is the most comfortable and quietest I
have ever owned. We have a 2002 MB
S500 and there is no comparison
especially on a road trip. The S500
is so poor ergonomically and the seats
are so uncomfortable that I feel sure
we will be rid of it fairly soon. It
also spends way too much time in the
shop compared to a Lexus. It is a
better looking car---but who cares?
