Definition of Luxury Sedan
By brtmd on


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


Was looking for a luxury vehicle for
family of 4 and did not want another
SUV. Shopped vs. S-class and 7
series. It's all about priorities and
the LS430 met mine best:
Quality/Reliability, Luxury,
Performance, Styling--in that order.
The fact that it was $15k to $20k less
than the others was an added bonus. I
look forward to driving it every day.

Best Features

Almost 8000 miles and not one problem-- now that's a feature I love. M.Levinson stereo is as good as they say. Sport suspension puts handling on par with the S-class but probably not best choice for everyone--perfect choice for my taste in this class of vehicle.

Worst Features

When someone builds a luxury sedan in this price class with quality/reliability of LS with the styling of S and the performance of 7, let me know so I can buy one. Until then you have to set your own priorities.
