This car is the best you can buy. It bests any Mercedes, BMW or Audi. It it luxurious, and sporty and provides any amenities you need to have. After 17 years of ownership I still get compliments from the same mechanic I used from the beginning…besides family and friends. Lexus is a brand that satisfies the most refined taste in automotive. The dealership keep asking for it as a trade and give me a 460…and I keep saying “no thank you”…there is no reason to trade or change it.
Major expenses included only a dealer-provided 100,000 mile service, new bank of 02 sensors, and replacement of front air suspension shocks at about 120,000 miles. Runs like new, excellent handling, quiet and powerful and just like new. Massage rear seats, looks and drives like a new car still. Amazing quality and comfort, lots and lots of miles left in this superb vehicle. Fortunately, have found an excellent, honest independent mechanic who really knows these vehicles, versus an over-the-top expensive dealer who has reliable, but sky-high prices for routine and other service needs..
Parts such as NAvi HDD , Radio Tuner , Radio AMP , tend to become oxidated heavily with sitting water inside the car , so be sure if you get one to have all drains in the car check for sitting water. other than that I ran the car (ls430) for 6 years of ownership and on the 7th year owning I am now getting ready to overhaul her $2500-$3000 in maintenance maybe more. However with that said I cannot complain as I neglected the car and still she never let me down. and if I was to finance car for the last 4-6 years I would have spent $3000 dollars 7x already from car note and servicing. Ive owned 2 of them 2001- base model , 2002- Ultra Pgk , Ive have also owned 3 GS’s , 2002 gs300 , 99 gs400 , 2002 sport design gs300. GO get you a lexus.!!!!
