This car has the worst location for a digital ampilfer. Mark Levison is trash. The speakers blow and then when speaker are replace the ampilfer blows. A good car with an horrible sound system.

about to put 200,000 on this car this week. I am completely satisfied with this vehicle. Went from a 1996 400 to the2004 430 and may go to the 460 next. Don't want to give this one up yet. Best car ever

I have 98,000 on mine. It has been excellent so far. I am having a problem with the driver side mirror automatically hyper extending every time I turn the ignition on. Mirror assembly replacement is expensive ($700 plus at Lexus Dealer). My mechanic is looking at a cheaper fix. I live in Johns Creek, Ga.
