2005 Lexus LS 430 Base Review
Power, Transmission, RIde quality, Stereo, Interior Materials, Fit and Finish.
Size (parking); Exterior styling is a bit dated. Looks a bit pretentious in my neighborhood.
The Best Car I've Ever Owned. — Rides like glass; smooth quiet power; silky transmission; feels very solid and safe, airbags everywhere; quality of materials is awesome, paint is beautiful, HID headlights make the road light up, MPG is great for size of car; Mark Levinson stereo is best I've ever heard. After a stressful day at work, I open the perfectly balance door with awesome trim, close it with the absolutely most satisfying "whoomp", start it up to a quiet idle, slip it into gear and feel that glassy ride - click on the stereo to hear Beethoven --and feel the stress just slip away .... If, like me, you've never appreciated classical music, listen to it in this car, and you'll love it. I can hear the difference between the quality of classical music recordings easily. Such depth!

It is really comfotable, like a car for the bosses
Maintainence costs on the car are realy high.
It Is Very Heavy. It Has V8 Engine And Only Reaches About 90 When You Push It — ultra Luxury package! Yay! That's the top of the line models for Lexus! It costs a lot if you buy it new, but it is very cheap if you buy a certified pre-owned one. The original price was like 80 grand and after the lease guy turned it back it dropped to 30!
Primary Use: Family transportation

Ultra version may get it's eerie quiet and stability from added weight, as well as air
Is The Very Definition Of A Quiet And Comfortable Way To Travel On Four Wheels. — My second LS, but first Ultra version. Total luxury. Everything always works. A real pleasure to drive. Too many virtues to discuss. A small issue with steering, which appears to be a non-oem tire set up, which I expect to resolve.

Great road cars not as stylish as other major models but overall a great car. Fits everyone in the family and gets up and goes when you punch it. Surprisingly great handling around turns and corners. ... Read More

This Is "the" Car That Is Truly Reliable.
It's very comfortable in the driver's seat, and all seats for that matter. Clear visibility, spacious interior and a rather large trunk space. The Mark Levinson sound System is superb when you play... Read More
