The ride quality is very good, but not
as good as my 1998 Cadillac Concours.
The appointments are top notch. I
still have not read the entire owners
manual, so there is still much to learn
about the NAV system. The car is easy
to manuver in tight parking spaces. The
fit and finish is excellent. The only
gripe is the seats are very stiff. I
am used to a little more cushioning. I
would suggest that Lexus think about
who is purchasing the vehicle. Not a
kids car. I'm 50 years old and need a
little more cushioning for my back.
Would I purchase another one....not
This car is a joy to get into and drive
every time. Hard to believe they could
make a vehicle so enjoyable to drive in
all conditions and even sitting in
traffic is nice because of the great
sound system ( I used to be a Hi-Fi
dealer) and the filtered air comming
into the car.
The third generation GPS map system is
unbelievable. After 9 months we're
still finding new amenities.
Although we have had the car for only a
little over a month, I couldn't be more
pleased. The car rides very firmly, it
handles well, has more power than you
would ever need and is very comfortable
and spacious. If I could change one
thing it would be the front seats,
making them wrap a little more, but
they make up for that by being tall
enough to make the head rest
comfortable and useable. Great car,
worth the money and fun to own.
GPS, really a neat feature, should be
on all cars. The horsepower is nice
Make front seats "wrap" around a little
more, would enhang performance image
and feel, not taking anything away from
This is our third Lexus. I am
completely satisfied in every feature
of the Lexus LS 430. The styling,
quality of workmanship, detail and
overall performance is unmatched in any
vehicle I have ever driven. The lack of
road noise is another great feature.
The gas mileage, for such a big
vehicle, is outstanding. The great ride
is the finest in the industry. We also
have a SC 430 which we consider the
best in its' class. If, and when, we
sell the SC 430, we intend to purchase
the RX 430 beacuse of our satisfaction
with our other models of Lexus. We
would NEVER change from our Lexus habit.
Quality of workmanship and quietness.
