Should be better
By Nathan Tharrington on


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


I purchased my 2nd Lexus with high
expectations, but Lexus is headed in
the wrong direction. My LS430 has been
in the shop for a variety of reasons
(power windows, door locks, engine
problems). The ride has been softened
to the point that it is virtually Buick-
like ... wallowing over bumps. Fuel
economy of 16 mpg is absurd. Minor
details of poor build quality abound.
The engine should propel this vehicle
with alacrity, but does not. I fear
for my wife and I at times on busy
highways. For an expediture of this
magnitude, one should receive the
highest reliability, and a sublime
driving experience. We shall be
looking for a replacement.
