    LS430
  1. I have a 2004 LS430. The steering wheel will move up and down (tilt) but will not move in and out with the button on the left side of the steering wheel column. Any ideas as to what might be causing this?
  2. I have both a 2004 LS430 and a 2006 LS430 with the Ultra Luxury package. The 2004 has been great, one problem is 45,000 miles (backup camera) that was covered by warranty. The 2006 has been a big disappointment. It was delivered with several inoperable components (mainly due to missing fuses) and has long term problems with squeaking door trim and a moonroof rattle that several visits to multiple dealers have not fixed the problems. Also, the radar cruise control failed and was repaired under warranty. No problems with the air suspension. I would recommend as 2004-2006 LS430 without the Ultra Luxury package. The package adds a lot of complexity to the car, with little benefit. Looking for the Ultra Luxury package will limit your choices since i don't think it is very common.
  3. I have a 2006 LS430. There is a rattle in the back right corner of the moonroof. The rattle is present when the moonroof is closed and the manual shade is closed. Pushing up on the right rear corner of the shade stops the rattle. The rattle is worse the higher the ambient temperature. I have tried to get this fixed under warranty three times (two different dealers). The rattle never gets fixed. Any ideas as to how I mught fix this myself?
  4. Does anyone have any ideas regarding how to deal with the lack of headroom (caused by the standard moonroof) for tall drivers in the LS460. I'm a little over 6' 4" and find my head hits the roof in the LS 460 even with the seat in its lowest position. I currently drive a LS430 and it has about an inch more headroom. Previouslly I had a 1992 LS400 and a 1998 LS400, both special ordered without moonroofs. Lexus won't let me order a LS460 without a moonroof even thought they are available without moonroofs in Europe. Can the seat be mounting be modidied to lower the seat? My dealer says this is not possible. Any ideas would be appreciated.
