2004 Lexus LS 430 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

The car is so quiet, your ears feel
like they're plugged! You think the
engine has died, until you look at the
tach! I hit the gas hard while getting
on the freeway yesterday and was over
80MPH in just a few seconds. The GPS
Navigation/Mark Levinson Audio package
is first class!


Best Features

I am amazed with the quality of paint and fit & finish! The feature that steered me to Lexus was the combination of a V8 engine and rear- wheel drive.


Worst Features

The trunk is small and could be made larger if the gas tank was relocated and the full-size spare was replaced by a spacesaver!

2004 Lexus LS 430 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Best, imo, of any car under $100k.
Superb in quality, handling (at 100mph
rides/handles like 55 on new pavement),
and reliability, except for two items
that a dealer in North California
refuses to deal with.


Best Features

Too many to mention all. Bluetooth, smart key, radar, auto wipers, back up camera, manual shift option and many others


Worst Features

DVD Nav makes major errors, takes me to destinations up to one mile from actual location, misses fastest routes by up to 30 miles. Voice recognition poor, especially at freeway speeds. Dealer tells me I must wait for a fix (waiting six months so far).

2004 Lexus LS 430 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Other than the low mileage even though
I am a regular complainer, I was not
able to find any bad to say about the
Lexus 430 or Meade Lexus my dealer
where I always find a cheerful,
respectful, and knowledgeable person to
deal with.


Best Features

Quiet, smooth ride, a feeling of power under the hood. I had been driving Mercedes top of the line sedans for 20 years and they never were able to build anything remotely comparing to my Lexus.


Worst Features

Many of the dashboard buttons are hard to find and when accidently pushed it is hard to correct the problem created.

Review

LS430 2004 has an intermittent Audio
problem where even when you turn on the
audio using voice command, there will
be no sound. As per Lexus dealership
this problem is with all LS430. I find
that hard to believe but that is the
story they gave me. I purchased it
brand new from them last month. Lexus
dealerships make a big deal about their
service quality, but I have been very
disappointed with my experience.


Best Features

Smoothness of the drive
