    2002 Lexus LS 430 - Base

    Pros: Dependability

    Cons: Nothng honestly

    Advice: If you can afford it by all means possible GET IT

    Owned it now over 7 years and like my 3 before never had to go into shop for any type of repair. No body builds them like Lexus. Mercedes tries but falls short and BMW just isn't as comfortable on a trip--sorry little brother. IT looks good okay. My Mercedes cost $800 every 15000 mile average(in the 80's) service fee, my Lexus is NOTHING like that can use anybody to change the oil et al and keep the warranty.

    2002 Lexus LS 430 - Base

    Pros: Turning radius

    Cons: If you don't have a cooler between the rear seats, the space exposed when the rear armrest is in the 'down' position is a little unattractive.

    Advice: Lexus doesn't have to sell this car... ...it sells itself:Just drive it - you'll see!!!

    I read where Mercedes is changing some of its leadership in attempt to catch this 'moving target' of quality. Does that not say it better than any thing?

    2002 Lexus LS 430 - Base

    Pros: everything

    Cons: nothing

    Advice: Buy it, as quickly as possible.

    This is perhaps the most refined vehicle on the road. I have owned Mercedes S classes and Bmw 7's before and this is by far better. The quality is better and the attention to detail is simply unsurpassed. The acceleration is thrilling

    We drove 500 miles in this vehicle about 2 weeks after we bought it new. We were extremely pleased with everything, including the gas milage. With mostly highway driving it avaged 27.5 MPG which is better than a GS300 we owned previously. this car is absolutely suberb. A dream.
