And it's still a '96 S-Class

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


You would except to buy a unique and
original vehicle when you aiming to
spend $60K. However, with Lexus LS you
always get an exact copy of 6-8 year-
old Mercedes for the price of the
current model. In my opinion, it’s just
pathetic that the “luxury” automaker
copies old competitors styles.
Essentially, Toyota is meant to be
cheap but reliable car and this is what
Lexus is. I might have leather seats
and decent audio system, but it’s still
a Toyota, not a Mercedes or Jag in any
way. Personally, for $60K I better get
the original, that the 2-generations-
behind replica.
