Having received a number of significant upgrades last year as part of a mid-cycle revision, Lexus' flagship sedan remains relatively unchanged for 2005. Its 290-horsepower 4.3-liter V-8 engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with a manual-shift mode and shift-logic control. As always, the LS430 performs flawlessly, is amply comfortable and offers a full assortment of high-tech features. For example, the car's so-called "Pre-Collision System" is configured to determine when a crash is imminent and automatically retract the front passengers' seatbelts and activate the car's brake-assist system to maximize its deceleration abilities. Adaptive headlamps can pivot slightly in conjunction with steering movement to help better illuminate the road ahead through the curves. A "Smart Access" system allows the driver to unlock and start the vehicle without having to physically use a key. Also included are front knee airbags, a tire-pressure monitoring system and assorted amenities. Among the car's ultra-luxury options are laser-guided cruise control, a voice-activated navigation system, Mark Levinson premium audio array, heated and cooled seats, and power door closers.

One idea, done very well for a long time.

I purchased my LS 430 certified used with 32K miles and took the extended warranty to 100K or six years whichever comes first. It's been a pleasure driving on the interstates with enough get up and go needed... + More »

I can not find a reason to replace it after 10 years.

I have enjoyed 10 years of trouble free travel. The interior and exterior have aged wonderfully. My friends tell me it presents as a 1 to 2 year old vehicle.

I bought this car new on 2005 and it has surpassed my expectations beyond what I paid. The features on this model are just now being duplicated on 2014 model cars. I still have it and hope to get a great price... + More »
