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


I've had the car for one week now and
I have driven about 350 miles and have
read through and figured out all the
bells and whistles on the car. My
previous car was a BMW 328i 2000
automatic 4 door sedan in titanium

I think this is a great car. It is
extremely expensive however. Since I
was buying an 04 in 03 I paid $3500
over sticker with an auto broker.
However, I got a GREAT deal on the
lease with a money factor of
only .00164! I didn't want the smart
key ($1K) option, but it seemed that
all the cars with the Modern Luxury
Package came with it. One problem with
the smart key is that it interferes
with remote start - nice for the

Best Features

Acceleration is fantastic for this size of car. Put it in power mode and hold on! Handling is quite good considering I didn't get the sport package (because I didn't want the huge 18" tires). The interior is beautiful. Paint and finish perfect.

Worst Features

Nav system more user friendly. Stop pushing smart key. Sport package with regular size tires. Better rims to improve apprearance.
