    Maybe a LS430?
  1. From back in time I'm back! And while during my original search I didn't find an LS that satisfied my needs (they were all rough, like the previous owners carted around hordes of little ankle biter dogs with sharp little claws and sharp little yapping teeth tearing up the leather and peeing on the upholstery) and I ended up with something else, however I find myself in a possible situation where I shall once again need to purchase another vehicle and I find myself once again drawn to the 04-06 LS430 :D And re-reading this thread certainly provided me with several answers to questions I had
  2. One more quesiton: what is the service interval for these cars and what is involved with each service? Thanks again.
  3. Hello, I'm back, still on the hunt. And, shockingly, with a few more questions if you will. *How can I tell from seller photos if the car has the air suspension? *do all LS430s have remote keyless starting? "smart key" if you will? *How is the NAV system? Is it push button? Does it control everything? (in other words, if it fails will I still be able to control radio/AC)? *are there any differences in reliability between m.y. 05 and 06 Thanks again!
  4. I was gathering that :D While the Jag makes my nether regions tingle the Lexus is entirely a left brain affair. The only complaint I find from owners (aside from the oddly hinged glovebox) is the nav system, so I'm not really going to miss it on any car I pick up. I also think that most reviewers used the air suspension equipped LS, and honestly if I'm going to have to fiddle with air I'd sooner buy the Jag.
  5. Oh yeah, one more question, is the factory warranty fully transferable to a second hand owner? It's 4/50 b2b w/roadside and 7/100 powertrain? Thanks,
  6. Hey now :D The XJ8 is ranked right below Lexus in the all powerful JD Powers :D Honestly I have no reservations on any reliability issues on the jag except for the air suspension which no mfgr has gotten to be long-term-reliable yet. The LS I'm looking at has coil springs, nice reliable coil springs :D I'm not really "into" options. I know that it doesn't have the "ultra luxury package" and I know that it doesn't have nav. It does have heated and cooled front seats (pretty cool stuff I thought was only a merc s-klasse toy) and rear heated seats. I have no idea about any other options.
  7. I know nothing about Lexus cars, I've been a consumer of products from the other side of the pond. However, I'm in the midst of looking for a new luxobarge and stumbled across a really good deal on an 06 LS430. To convince me that I should get this over an XJ8 I wanted to ask you folks in the know a few questions: What can you tell me about the engine? Any weak points? What about routine maint? Does this thing have a t-belt or chain? I assume the transmission (6 speed?) is solid given the lineage of Toyota? Is there anyway to disable the steering wheel from retracting everytime you sto
