"Bought a used LS430 last January and have had nothing but smooth riding ever since. I have had to do nothing but put it in for oil changes and that is exceptiional as compared to the BMW 7 series I used to own. I was always a BMW man but no longer. Love my Lexus!"
"BEST AUTO EVER OWNED-ALWAYS OWNED HIGH END AUTOS-WILL BE DIFFUCULT TO REPLACE-(HAD A JAG XK-8, BEFORE THIS LEXUS-MAKES THE JAG LOOK LIKE A FAILURE-WILL NEVER OWN ANOTHER JAG -HAVE HAD 3 EARLIER JAGS 65, 67, 69 -ALL MUCH BETTER THAN THE NEWER ONES--LEXUS STANDS BEHIND THEIR CARS-GREAT SERVICE)"
"I don't know where to start. Is it the excellent acceleration or great fuel economy for a V-8. I got 500 miles to the tank of gas on a road trip. The comfort of the vehicle goes well beyond any that I have owned in the past."
"I bought the 2001 Ultra three years old with 63,000 miles. It was everything I hoped it would be at 105,000 miles. Lexus Customer Service is the best. GM and Ford should really benchmark Lexus service.
Quiet, comfortable and a joy to take on a long trip. Who wants a BMW? Not after this car."
"Test drove a BMW 754i before purchasing. Once I drove the LS-430, there was no comparison. The LS 430 rides much better, is quieter and more comfortable. I realize the 745i is a sports car but I expected a $70,000 car to ride better and be more reliable. THe extended warranty for the LS-430 is less than half that of the 745i.
THe Lexus dealer was wonderful. Very pleased so far !"
"I bought a '04 a few month back and I low it. Even the gas mileage is good for a car this large. I get about 21 city/highway.
I bought it to keep for along time so I hope it stands to its reputation."
"Bought my '05 new. Traded a 7series. Loved the performance of the 7 series but hated the fact I spent more time driving a 3-series loner. Have NEVER EVER had any kind of mechanical issues with my Lexus. Obviously it handles differently but the dependability is priceless. The car is a dream on the highway but not quite as fun on the curves of backroads. Has some lean. I am torn as I am about to purchase a new vehicle and I want to try something different but the Lexus luxury and dependability is hard to ignore. PLUS the electronic items and other bells and whistles are perfect. Probably going to get another one."
"I bought this car used from my boss, '02 w/ 113,000 miles. Performance is awesome, faster than a speeding bullet & 30 mpg on recent trip! Very reliable- only 2 seperate tail light bulbs have been replaced. Super comfortable on recent trip from Boise to Sacramento= no fatigue what so ever. Only complaint- it drives like a Buick, too soft, my E-class Merecedes was much more FUN to drive! I think my next car will be a GS430!"
"I bought a 1990 LS400 new and loved the car, 100k miles with 0 problems, bought a 2001 LS430 new and still have it. Same results. Drove it 9,200 miles this summer visiting all Presidential libraries with 0 problems. Love the adaptive cruise control and used the Nav system every day to find the hotels."
"This is my 4th Lexus, and it is not the car the others have been. Nothing major, just things such as loud tire noise, vents that fall out. Plus a totally useless dealer here in Las Vegas. It does get great gas mileage for a large car."
