"We have owned this car for 10 years. Not one problem. Smooth, quiet, comfortable and stable ride. I own the ultra model. it is the best car I have ever owned. I tried to buy my wife a LS 460. But after driving the LS 430, my wife refuses to part with her LS 430. I have owned MB and Audi products. This car is the Best of the Best."

"I have driven everything from an Escalade to Maserati's, Bentley's, Range Rovers, Mercedes, BMW, Audi etc and this is by far the best ride quality I have ever experienced for any car under $300,000. This is my family car and it is almost silent as you drive, even at highway speeds. The engine is strong and very reliable and the transmission shifts are almost undetectable if you don't watch the RPMs. Heated and cooled seats are amazing, as are the quality of the interior materials. the features on this car are superb and the ride quality can't be beat. Hands down the best all around car I have ever driven and I have driven almost everything. I would highly recommend this car to anyone. I would not be afraid at any moment to go out and drive across the country with this car. Absolutely a dream to drive!"

"I have had my pearl white 2004 LS430 for 8 months and have only put 6,000 miles on it. So far I sit just under 85K miles. I love everything about this car. You can feel the build quality from how the doors seal when they shut to the near silent telescoping and tilt steering wheel motors. I have owned several BMW's, a few Mercedes, and nothing compares to this Lexus. This car is hands down the best luxury car money can buy. The ONLY downside I have found yet is that I'm 6'2" and I like to drive with both hands on the steering wheel. To do this, I have to keep the seat up high and the back tilted upright so my knees can bend enough which hurts my back after a while. I wish this car had adjustable pedals that I could move back under the dash a little further so I could comfortably sit closer to the steering wheel. If you are thinking about owning a Lexus LS430 you will not be disappointed!"

"Owned the car since 2010. It had less than 30,000 miles when I purchased it now nearly 250,000. I have had only 2 minor repairs and regular maintained. It is a road car and you can not find a better one. Plan on keeping it a while longer and when it is replaced I hope to buy another one."

"For the prior 30 years I drove Mercedes cars, all of which had periodic mechanical and electrical defects and two of which were constantly having problems. Same was true for my neighbors. So in 2006 I took the jump and bought an LS430. It has been absolutely reliable. It is amazingly quiet. I get decent mileage (26 to 27 MPG on long distance trips, 17 MPG for constant city driving). I also prefer this model to the newer LS460 which several friends bought, all of whom had the prior LS430 and all of whom say the same thing: the LS430 has far better visibility than the LS460."
