A luxury bargain
By Ian Schmidt on


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


For those of us who don't define ourselves by the hood ornament on our car, the LS 430 is both a fantastic solidly-built car and a great deal. It drives much smaller than it is, it's got great power when you "drop the hammer", the Mark Levinson stereo puts many high-dollar home systems to shame, and it's truly comfortable for 5 adults. Plus it's got enough trunk room to make you wonder why people buy SUVs, and the gas mileage is better than you'd expect for a car of this size.

Best Features

The whole interior, the Mark Levinson stereo, the silky-smooth drivetrain, and of course the Lexus ownership experience.

Worst Features

Would be nice if the price were lower and/or the options packages more flexible, but it's still a raging bargain vs. the Germans.
