2002 Lexus LS430 Reviews
great car. Only 2 repairs of consequence.
Replace rear struts assemblies as it was causing a knocking sound over bumps. the support rubber on end of strut was excessively worn and replaced at 90k mi. Lexus charged about 400 ea. incl. labor to replace and re-align.
Replace rear speaker in window and 2 add'l speakers as they were cracked and made cracking noise when base or volume turned up at all.
Excellent vehicle. I have had this vehicle since 2002. The maintenance is neglible. The brakes had to be changed once. Other than that tires, batteries and oil change is the only other maintenance expense. it is hard to like any other car after you ride this car. Very very quiet. I have 90000 miles on the car.
Incredible vehicle. Have run regular gas in it since we bought it with 37,000 miles in 2006. Now has 110,000 miles on it and no hint of any engine problems. Gets 26-28 mpg on the highway. Only problem was worn out hydraulic arms for trunk that made the trunk lid a guillotine. Had to complain to Toyota to get them replaced, I was surprised at how dishonest the Lexus dealer was in acknowledging this problem.
Very satisfied with the performance of this car since 2005
