Uncomfortable driver's seat.
By Joel on


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


You would think that Lexus would have spent more time testing the driver's seat comfort in their "flagship" sedan. I have owned this car for a month and will sell it as soon as possible. It feels like you are sitting in a hole the longer you sit in the driver's seat. In addition the armrest is uncomfortable due to lack of adequate padding and large seam. My other car is a 1999 ES 300. It has the most comfortable seats and driving position of any car I have ever owned. At any rate, my next car will be a Jaguar or Mercedes (with 100K warranty) more exciting design and road feel but less reliability. The trade off will be worth it this time around.

Best Features

Interior room. Reliability.

Worst Features

Driver's seat and armrest are unacceptable. Lack of design. The 2007 LS 460 looks like the new Camry.
