2005 Lexus LS 430 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Seats are incredibly comfortable. Acceleration very good. Gas mileage around 20mpg. Extremely quiet. Ventilated seats overrated. Some features a bit complex. Best car I've ever driven. Test drove the MB500S and like the Lexus and its features/engineering/price much better.


Best Features

The centralized contol screen for the climate control, sound system, navigation is neat but takes a while to learn.


Worst Features

Voice commands are beyond me, as is the programming features on the navigation and door locks. Also, cruise control will not work in bad weather for safety reasons (no override for the laser/radar detection mechanism).

Review

The automatic heating system and heated seats take long time to warm up. When the vent is closed, you suffocate. Very rigid suspension, You feel every bump on the road. My Lexus has a mind of its own. It accelerates and brakes with its own mind. Service department said both brake and engine control by a computer. The computer has a mild delay which is normal according to the mechanics.


Best Features

Lexus has the best GPS. Folding mirrors is good feature.


Worst Features

Better suspension.

Review

Owned my 2005 LS 430 for three months and find myself loving it more everyday. I actually went to the dealership to buy a new GS 300 but I drove the LS 430 and I was so impressed that I purchased it.


Best Features

Keyless access is great. Love the Mark Lev. sound system. Ride is quiet and comfortable.


Worst Features

Fix the lag when you hit the gas. It tends to take a second to "kick into gear" when pushed hard, but would still buy it again.
