Edmunds' Expert Review

With refinement and comfort levels equal to or better than the German uber-sedans, the LS provides an exceptional luxury sedan experience without the holier-than-thou attitude.

2005 Highlights

After last year's major refresh, Lexus chose to keep changes simple this year. The lone change is to the optional 18-inch alloy wheels, which are now available as a stand-alone extra.

Could not ask for a better car!!!
Purchased this car used in 2014. Only had one prior owner who leased then purchased from 2005 to 2014. Traded up from an 2001 LS300 to this 2005 LS430. Loved the Lexus brand, just wanted a bigger car that was a little more luxury than the LS300 (which was more equivalent to a BMW 3-Series). This car is amazing to drive. My wife loves the luxury inside, the shear lack of road noise, and just how comfortable the entire experience is. Have driven it nearly 10,000 miles in just 6-months, including two extended road trips from Seattle to Wyoming....the car did amazing on the open road. Even though the car is nearly 10-years old, you would never know it. Smooth and quiet every mile.
Can't beat executive large sedan 2005 LS430!!!!
Bought mine about a year back in 2014, with 105K miles. I'm at 117K now with NO issues what so ever!!!!!! Just oil changes. For the money, you CANNOT beat the ride, quality of materials, and steering/handling this car offers. Basically cruising around in a $60-70K car when it was new, for around $12,000. Toyota reliability on the mechanical size is PERFECTION as well. Let's face it, it's Toyota engine and parts, just upgraded in quality for Lexus. YOU CANNOT HEAR THIS CAR accelerate, I can't even tell when it change gears the transition is so smooth, and even at 10 years old you can not show me another car that still rides like it's floating on air (with all original equipment). Also, the appearance is not affected by time (10 years), it still holds it's own next to any newer model luxury sedans without the maintenance issues of German or British cars. As for power, 290 horsepower! That's enough for anyone that doesn't plan on drag racing. (a 2001 Mustang GT only has around 285 horse). Do not go for the "navigation system", I never do, they age poorly in every vehicle. Your cell phone can guide you around these days. I highly recommend buying used, letting a new buyer take the initial hit, and driving away with pure top of line LS class luxury. Again, can't describe the feeling of driving one, you just have to test it out.
Outstanding Automobile!
Purchased this vehicle a month ago with 53k miles and after 3k miles and a month of driving I can say that this car is absolutely amazing. Just completed a road trip to Atlanta and averaged 27.3mpg!! Not bad for a 4,000 pound car. The fit and finish in this car is truly outstanding with no rattles or blemishes of any kind. The Mark Levinson stereo is one of the best I have heard. Althoug this car is a heavy vehicle it still has plenty of power when needed and handles very well on the road. The car has the feel of a well built automobile. This car reminds me of a better version of a 93 Mercedes 300E I owned. (The new benz's don't hold a candle to either of these cars in terms of quality.)
Awesome Ride
I've purchased my 2005 LS 430 with 48,000 and it is now at 167,000. In that time I had no issues until this past year (needed a new alternator $390 and the thermastat was old and it damage the radiator hose $700). Since those issues were fixed the car rides like its brand new. I read a few other reviews and noticed when a car is serviced by lexus only, the car has major issues. Dealerships are similar to printer companies (HP, Epson etc.) lexus make there money from the service portion just like printers make there money from the ink sales. Lexus are professionals in getting you to return with an issue and will charge you 3 to 4 times the money! Stay away from dealerships and find a good local mechanic that will treat you with respect!

Should I lease or buy a 2005 Lexus LS 430?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
