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

sell the SC 430, we intend to purchase
the RX 430 beacuse of our satisfaction
with our other models of Lexus. We

handling; if pure luxury is your thing,
you probably shouldn't order this
suspension. But if you want a great
car that is also great fun to drive, this
one is for you. Given 500hp, this
would be the Best of the Best!

Because of a decline in Mercedes quality I
traded my trouble proned E class for a new
Lexus LS 430. It's a fantastic car! Only car
I've purchased in 35 years that had zero
defects. Two months later , still zero. Love it.
