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


Very few people are aware how well
this sporty model compares to
BMWs & M-Benz. Handling &
roadholding are superb. 18" tires
stay glued to the road, regardless of
undulations & nothing fazes it,
inspiring enormous confidence.
Unlike the std. model's extra-plush
ride, you know exactly what the road
surface is like under you. Feedback
is firm, but not harsh, making the
driving experience very Lexus-like.
However, you must enjoy sporty
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!

Best Features

Unmatched build quality, perfect seats, lovely interior, best factory stereo period, no key req'd (w/Smart Key), sonar parking assist (when in unfamiliar places), rain-sensitive wipers work by themselves! A sense of precision permeates everything; you know this is the best car made!

Worst Features

Cup holders are NOT as good as my '91; roofline is 1"-2" too high. Needs: longer hood, sleeker styling (like the coming Benz CLS), 350 std. horsepower with 500hp performance option. These improvements would make this car a world-beater at a bargain price.
