Best car ever made.
"The LS430 has been said by some professional reviewers to be the best automobile ever made. I agree. It is definitely the most reliable car that I have ever owned. It had radar controlled cruise control and parking sensors years before they became as common as they are now. And adaptive HID headlights that point where you turn years before they became common, too."

Instead of fabric, the headliner is made of suede.

Excellent. Looks very similar to the Mercedes S500 of the same year.
Performance

290 hp v8 has tons of acceleration. 0 to 60 in 5.9 seconds. Smooth as silk rolling down the road. Like floating on a cloud.

Lots of room both front and back seats.

Pretty spendy brand new. My original window sticker was $64000 when new in 2005. I paid $28000 in 2011 with 50k miles on it - like showroom condition. I test drove several brand new 2011 vehicles before I bought my '05 LS430. This Lexus beat them all for comfort, looks and performance.

Rocky start, steady as she goes!
"After purchase I discovered the drivers door actuator was not working and the telescoping steering wheel was inoperative. This was totally my fault as I did not discover at time of purchase, nor apparently did the dealer. Since I have replaced the items there have been no further failures and the car is performing great. Unless one is totally familiar with all of the features of a car (I wasn’t) I would suggest an inspection from a Lexus dealer before finalizing the price of the vehicle."

Good condition. The roof trim strips were pealing so I removed all paint on them. Since the car is silver it is unnoticeable. The overall paint condition is excellent for a14 year old car

The best car
"I use this car for more than 13 years and I really like it. It is very reliable, practically no repairs; very convenient to drive-even after 10 hours of driving you are not tired. This car is very stable on the road, quite, and provide very gentle driving. It hard to hear the engine."
Interior

Simply, it is the interior what I ever saw and used.
Exterior

I like this old style design much better than later models.
Performance

Performance of this car is excellent. It is not a sports kind of car, it is the car for the serious business person.
Family

5.0

This car is big enough to serve a family and is very good for any family needs.
Cost

5.0

It is the luxury car. It may be a bit more expensive compared to the Toyota Yaris or Honda Civic, but you get what you paid for. You may use a bicycle if you want to save a lot.

" I am 48 years old and this is the best car I have ever owned in my life. Are use it as my every day driver. It has every option available from the manufacture installed on this vehicle. I cannot even begin to describe to you how amazing this car is for something that is 10 years old. The technology was years ahead of its time. "

"Absolutely a fantastic car! Bought it used with 78,000 miles. It has the ultra luxury package, new tires and breaks. Regular scheduled maintenance was performed. I love the quiet solid ride. The technology was very advanced for 2005. The screen is a little dated now. I use my android for navigation anyway. Miss being able to stream my own music. I plan to remedy that with an aftermarket device. "

"Bought used, LOVE this car. Smooth ride, good gas mileage for a V8, tons of room for passengers and all the amenities to make the drive enjoyable. Plan on keeping this car for many more years!"
