Best Car I Ever Owned. — This car is awesome you can go over 100mph and think you are going 50mph. This car is extremely reliable and doesn't ever have any problems. It is amazing how Lexus vehicles hold their value. It is like driving around in your living room.

This Car Is A Dream To Drive. — Nothing bad I can say about this car, once you drive it you'll never want to get out of it. I've never owned a Lexus but I don't think I'd purchase any other car again. It's the little things that make this car a wonderful, for example, the power window up and down feature, as you unlock the doors a light under the driver and passenger mirrors lights up so you can see around the car. The seats are incredibly comfortable and move in all directions. The back seats even have a message feature, along with radio and air controls in the back. They literally thought of everything. Performance is outstanding, fun to drive if you like a bigger car, and it'll cruse at 100 like a dream. This car is built to be driven and will last forever if it's maintained. I bought mine with 105,000 on it.

Love My Lexus Ls 430 — I would have liked windows shade on the doors for base package. The LCD touch screen /Navigation is wonderful. It controls everything in the card. The trunk is huge, I can put a cart, and golf bag/set in the car without having to re-arrange things.

Comfortable, reliable and safe. Low maintenance cost.

Sport Package is sharp but contributes to harsher ride with low sidewall tires and larger rims.

Luxurious, Comfortable Ride. — Comfortable road car. Spacious, luxurious and fairly quick for its size. Would opt for the Ultra Luxury package as opposed to the Sport Package for more comfortable ride. Would recommend light exterior color to hide blemishes and keep it collet in hot weather.

Great Car — The 2004 Lexus LS is a great car. 129,000 miles and I have had virtually no issues that have required unscheduled maintenance. I plan to get around 250,000 miles out of this car. I will purchase another Lexus when the time comes.

Pretty Much The Best Car There Is If Not Looking For Performance — A very nice luxury car, the type I enjoy every mile I drive in it. Love the ride, driving feel, trim, fit and finish. The car has no issues whatsoever. Never needed to take it dealer for fixing anything even after 50,000 miles.

The 2004 Lexus Ls 430 Is The Best Luxury Car In The World! — The 2004 Lexus LS 430 is the best luxury car in the world. I have driven BMW, Mercedes etc. and they cannot compete with the Lexus regardless of price. When you are driving one you feel like you are on a cloud floating. The car looks great, performs great and is very reliable and again luxurious.

My Lexus Ls 430 — Great Acceleration for a large luxury car. Well designed car overall. No problems what so ever. Reliable and exceptionally quiet are two things i would say stand out about this car. Mercedes S500 luxury without hte price or headaches.

Pros

Quietness, build quality, interior appointments (that semi-aniline leather and the honey-colored maple is just...sigh), reliability, smoothness, refinement, presence,

Cons

Could stand to have a bit more responsive steering and handling...but we're bein picky here.  I'd take my car's interior over a current BMW interior (or S-class Mercedes, for that matter) any day.

His Name Is Collin. I Name Mine After Guys Because I Believe Your Car Should Be Your Wingman. — Third Lexus I have owned...and all have been primo. Before Collin I had Connor I (RX330, black), and Connor II (RX400h, flint mica (charcoal). Before the Connors I had Christian (Toyota Solara). Screw you if you think the LS430 is an old man's car! Nothing is quieter, smoother, better built, or more reliable. So there. Plus, Collin has a fridge in the back with massagers. Does your grand am have those? Pbbbbbbbttttttt.
