      Toyota/Lexus is a meme at this point.

      Always been a mix of imitation Mercedes, ugly or mommy car.
      Preferred choice of females everywhere. Perfect for the gaylord that wants the German car experience but too scared or sensible to actually do it. Plays it safe like a fricking gaylord. Sorry seconds to the true leaders BMW then Mercedes. Fricking Lexus, a Camry with a body kit. These days they are plagued by electrical/infortainment issues, like Audi.

        Nah. Lexus back in the 90s and 00s were the GOAT of the executive sedan market. GS and LS both spanked the frick out any MB that tried to compete, and the only thing BMW put out that was interesting was the high performance M series sedans.

        You only buy an 7-Series/S-Class because you can't afford to buy a Bentley/Rolls, but you are too pretentious to be seen in a 5 series or E-class.

          Lexus is nowhere near BMW or the legacy.

            It doesn't need to be anywhere near BMW performance wise. Different focus. Lexus's main appeal is that it will continue to run well past 200k miles with just basic maintenance. Your bimmer will not make it to 2030 without you having spent a small fortune maintaining it. As far a legacy, there is a reason why that bimmer likely is 1/4 the price it sold for new. Plenty of 10 year old AMG sedans selling for cheap as well.

            Besides, we are talking about different eras of car. My focus is on the 90s and 2000s Lexus sedans. The same ones that forced the Germans to step up their efforts and actually compete.

            Those cars of too expensive to maintain. Europeans don't drive. Americans drive a lot. They actually understood what Americans needed. Not some overengineered piece of shit that needs constant maintenance if you drive as much as us. Also, we had factories opened here to make them domestically.

            Give us a car that fricking works. They did, so that's why they're popular.

        Really? What happens to it. I thought the early 460s (2006-2012) might be the way to go since they've got a timing chain instead of belts and more horsepower; but they don't yet have the giant weird grill that Lexus has had for the past decade.

          They are known for eating front suspension components. I'm not sure about the post-2013 ones, but I still wouldn't trust modern Lexus to maintain quality control like the old school ones. Remember, sales numbers dropped after 2009 and never recovered.

            They're just heavy. Diesel pickup trucks suffer from the same issue with steering and suspension because the engine is so fricking heavy. Ask a 3/4 diesel owner and they know someone who paid out the ass to rebuild the front end.

      The LS430 is highly regarded because its one of the few luxobarges that can be dailied without worrying about some catastrophic problem leaving you stranded. Literally everything European from its era couldn't compete, and almost no modern car can compete on price to quality ratio. You can pickup a very nice example for $20k and have a car that btfos every sedan under $60k in quality and reliability.

        I loved my 05 rx330 but it was totaled recently.
        Tested a 2010 RX350 and boy is it horrible.
        I don't know WHAT they were smoking when they designed the interior.
        That center console is an abomination, why are the 12 volt and usbs inside it and why do I have to use a flashlight to find them after digging out all the shallow trays and bucket? It's cavernous in there but has a narrow opening like my wife.
        I miss my star trek door center console doors.
        I miss that little pop out cup holder by the steering wheel.
        At least it doesn't have an ipad like the V8 GX I tried with HVAC controls buried in menus.
        Also the steering wheel is horribly uncomfortable and the handling is worse.
        Do later years get any better?

      the 430 is peak lexus. best build/materials. perfect amount of tech to still feel modern enough.

      460 is the worst LS. least reliable and the interior melts. 13+ are ok though.

      How do u change out the transmission oil in the facelift? Did u ever change it in the old one?

      drain pan (remove if replace filter), measure what comes out. fill back through fill hole with same amount. pull trans cooler line to collect old fluid. get in and turn on car, manually shift through gears to circulate fluid. measure what came out and refill. repeat until fluid runs clean. to verify level get trans up to certain temp (think 215 degrees) and pull fill plug. if overfilled it'll pour out, let drain until trickle. if underfilled fill until trickle. not that much more involved than the dipstick models.

      replace fluids (coolant/trans/power steering/brake/diff) due to age. you're due for a timing belt, go ahead and replace the accessory tensioner/pulleys w/ belt and the crankshaft seal while you're in there. won't have to touch the front of the engine until the next timing belt service. probably do spark plugs if they're original. aside from that do air filters yearly and oil changes every 5k.

    For what it is, yes. They're very quiet, it leaves you feeling better after the trip, and they're very amenable to aftermarket modification, so if you want to upgrade the audio system to a more modern unit and add more sound insulation, the Lexus handles all of that in stride.

    Their repair costs are high so that must be accounted for, but if you're a croozer, it's probably one of the best ways to enter the segment aside from the Avalon.

      Crigslist or fb marketplace. Search for and verify it was actually a one family car. Expect to pay well over 10k tho. I found and bought a 02 ls430 with 87k miles off a Honduran man but it still ended up being clean. Make sure they have records of major maintenance milestones like the timing belt change.
