My fifth Lexus, fourth LS
By pjbigley on


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


This is my fifth Lexus. Have had a 2 1991 LS's, a 1998 LS, 2004 GS430 (mistake), and my present 2005 LS 430. The GS was too small for me (should have learned on the first 3 LS's, and I am soooo happy to be back in the seat of an LS. All it took was to sit in the drivers seat, have the seats wrap around you, the dash light up, and all of the phenomenal features at your fingertips. From the radar cruise, to the LED appointments everywhere at night, to the folding mirrors, and to have a backup camera in a sedan is a dream. I have not driven any other since 1996, and never will. As long as I can afford it, it will always be a Lexus LS.

Best Features

Smart Key, Laser cruise control, backup camera, folding mirrors, auto closing doors, and the tiptronic like shifting. Mark Levinson sound is the best and so versatile. Love the seat extension for the driver (I am 6'5").

Worst Features

Cannot wait to see how the new 07 LS fares. If the tradition continues, I will be an owner in the next three years
