Lexus is 1st Class All the Way!

The LS430 is the nicest car that I have ever driven! Not only is it luxurious, and drives smooth as glass; but with the 4.3L 8CYL engine, it's got serious 'get up and go'! It is roomy enough for 5 adults or 2 adults and 3 kids in the back. There are miles of legroom for the front and rear passengers. The leather is buttery and conforms to your body like a glove. This car has every imaginable bell & whistle which make commuting a treat (instead of a burden). And, unlike the big 8CYL SUV's on the road, the LS430 gets 18 MPG City & 25 MPG Hwy! I would recommend this car to anyone who is looking to drive the best of the best!

The most comfortable sedan on the road!

Lexus is for people who value their time and money, who want to enjoy the best comfort, class, prestige and world-class mechanical reliability! Let BMW and Mercedes owners worry about high costs of maintenance, Lexus have been the most reliable luxury brand since LS400 came out in 1990! Read Consumer Reports - thousands of very happy owners! Lexus is the most hassle-free vehicle you can own - along with world-class comfort, ride quality and smooth ride! Drive an LS430 for yourself and know that the car will feel and drive the same way 10 years from today - you won't have to worry about the car breaking down or high maintenance bills! I suggest buying a used Lexus, today,in this economy - you can buy a clean title, one owner 2004 LS430 for under $20K with 55-60K miles! Negotiate well - you deserve the best!

I have driven and owned alot of cars and none of them including Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Cadillac, Lincoln etc. compare to the luxurious ride, interior quality and reliabilty of the 2004 Lexus LS 430 Ultra. When you compare it to other luxury automobiles, which are always in and out of the shop regardless of how expensive they are or how well you maintain them Lexus wins hands down and their customer service is outstanding. I have never owned or driven such a luxurious, smooth driving car that gets compliments everywhere I go and feels like you are driving a flying carpet because it is just that smooth.

Super Great Car!

by from Tampa, FL on July 22, 2011

This car has everything and more than what I wanted in a used car. It's the nicest car I've ever had... our family now has two of the same model car. We love this car just that much!

I went from an Lexus LS400 to a Cadillac Deville to a LS400 to a Mercedes S500 back to a Lexus LS430. I love the Lexus!!!! It's reliable and good value for the money. No matter what car I got, I always come back. I choose this over the BMW 750 LI.

As a former Mercedes driver for many years, I find the LS 430 to be superior in comfort, reliability and driving enjoyment. The heating and air conditioning controls are intuitive, unlike those of Mercedes. I used to spend SO MUCH time (and $) taking my Mercedes cars for servicing. The LS430 turning radius is unbelievable for a car its size. There is not space here to describe all the other ways in which Lexus trumps Mercedes. The LS430 has luxuries I didn't even know existed, and it's a 2004 that I bought! I've driven the 2008 model and don't think "new" justifies the price difference, given the way ALL cars depreciate. I laugh every time I hear a car referred to as an investment; the fact is that if you drive it long enough, you'll pay someone to haul it off. But I can't recommend the LS430 enough. You won't regret getting one. No more Mercedes for this driver. (And, no, I don't work for Lexus or have relatives who do.)

The greatest car that I have ever owned or driven. High original price but is offset by high resale valvue. Dealer support is outstanding. The car is powerful, quite, comfortable and prestigous. The Mark Levinson sound system is as good as it gets. Gas mileage is 27 mph on the highway but poor around town. Breaking is very good. Acceleration is terrific. The engine is so quite that there is a tendency to forget to turn it off before departing the vehicle. A must car for those households that can afford the intial investment.

Golden age of this car. Got it with 40k miles. Essentially new. Our other, 16 yr old LS is at 200k miles and going strong with minimum maintenace . I Expect to have this car just as long. There are a few details, like the rear arm-rest cup holding situation is a little akward, and I don't like the placement of the tire-pressure-reset and smart-key buttons. Other than that, this car has exceeded my very high expectations and then some. Love it. Want to marry it.
