Pros

Smoothest ride of any luxury car I have driven to date. On my third one. Started with an ES, moved up to the LS400 and now the LS430. Scouting for a LS460 now. Very roomy and quiet.  

Cons

Lexus dealers like you to come in at every opportunity to have it go through maintenance checks. Um, no.

Love The Look And Ride. — NO dislikes about this car. Plenty of interior leg room for any body type. Daily driver, so must get around in the weather in Nebraska all year round. Does a good job. Will keep buying Lexus as my main car.

Lexus Rules — My current Lexus is never in the shop for repairs. Scheduled maintenance, yes. Lexus is responsive and fun to drive, handles smoothly and doesn't break the bank keeping gas in it. I have owned a Lexus since the very first Lexus came on the market. I have had a total of 5 over the last 23 years. Prior to owning a Lexus I had a Jaguar, 2 Mercedes (fine automobile, but not as fine as Lexus), Cadillac, 4 door Thunderbird, Pontiac Granville (top of the line). In my younger days, I had a volks wagon, a Corvair, a Pontiac Le Mans, and a few other that will remain nameless. In my opinion, for the money, the Lexus is the finest ride on the market. Of course I have only ridden in a Rolls Royce, but I wasn't that impressed. I am currently in the market to buy my 6th Lexus.

Cons

none

Not Inexpenive, But Easily Worth The Price Again And Again — Nothing to dislike. All good. 28/30 mpg hwy 19/20 city. What more can you ask for? Change oil every 5,000 miles. Tires every 50,000 miles. Scheduled maintenance as instructed. Never owned a car as dependable as the Lexus LS 430.

Great! — Japanese know their cars. Very excellent driving experience. You don't feel tired after a long drive. Very responsive to your driving needs. Have 195,000 miles on it and still drives it did when it had 30,000 miles. What a car.
