- Best Buy under 65k, super smooth ride, rediculously comfortable
- wait for the '07 THE 460 IS GOD ON WHEELS
This is a great car and a ledgend in the luxury segment. The car is in a class of it's with its nearest competition being 15k more. (7,S,XJ,A8) The ride is awesome, pretty fast and smooth. The v8 is underrated. It packs a punch for sub300; feels like more. The seats are awesome, great reare legroom and awesome steering. Mine's an 04 but the car hasn't changed except for the rims. Great value too, theres hardly any depreciation$$. If you've got 60k, buy one. You wont find anything better- guarentee it. But if you have the patience, hold your cash for the '07. This car left me speechless. The interior pics look like some kind of sweet Mayback. The exterior isn't bad either. They copied the 7 but who cares, no1 can tell. 380hp and 8 speed auto transmission- thats rediculous. MB no longer offers competition to lexus cuz they can't offer quality for such a good price. I'd take the '07 460 over the '07 s any day and there's a 30k difference. Beemer can't compete either. Lexus wins in every categor. The A8 it bland and my grandpa doesn't even like the XJ anymore. Go lexus....read morehide

- Decent Fuel economy
- It needed a new engine, sluggish performance. steers hard to the left
This car is an absolute Lemon...sure the dealer is helpfull but I'm getting tired of driving a loaner while waiting weeks for my car to get fixed.
Fact is this car has been longer in the shop than in my garage.
I should have really bought the cadillac STS. I hope you don't make the same mistake....read morehide

- Too numerous to mention
For 2006 the only upgrade is 18" wheels with a 19" option. Otherwise,
what can I say?? It is a Legend in it's own time. The best four door
sedan under $100K.
Think of it as an investment - the best investment you'll ever make.

- Very good fuel economy to be a V-8 and such a comfortable car. Yhe GPS could use some simplicity us
- GPS shoud be simplified.
After drivibf BMW's since the early 1980's the LS 430 is a dream by comparison, A wonderful car to drive and travel in !!!

- fit & finish, great performance & handling, great reliability, quiet, controlled ride
- No DVD audio, Nav system is inferior to Acura, styling is dated.
I have an '05 Acura TL, and an '06 LS430. While the TL is a remarkably good car, the RL is not that much better. I looked for more quiet, better handling, a little more rear seat room...
I drove the Acura RL, the Infiniti M35, M35 Sport, M35xAWD, M45.
They all were ever so slightly quieter than the TL, The RL & all M35's were slower than the TL, got worse gas mileage. The "M's" rode and handled a little better as did the RL, but not enough better to justify the price differential. Enter the LS430... This thing is amazing. It's suspension is a work of art. Handles far better than all of the above, rides far quieter than all of the above, gets better gas mileage than all of the above, save for the TL.
Is a bit more dinero than the RL, and "M's", but well worth the difference if the superiorities I've mentioned are important to you.
The Mark Levinson Sound system in the LS sounds better than the sound system in the TL, but the TL is no slouch. The TL does have DVD audio, while the LS doesn't even offer it as an option. What's up with that Lexus? The Nav and voice control system in the Acuras is quite a bit better than what Lexus has to offer in that arena as well. Bottom line, for me, we will keep the TL in the family because it is so darn good, but the LS will be my daily driver for it's superior handling, performance, comfort, room, and quietness....read morehide

- Silent Smooth V8 and ride, 0-60 in 5.9, PCS, AVAS, SmartAccess, ML System, DRCC, IPA
- Should of waited for 2007 model, Fuel Economy
I love the everything in the car, it may have an old platform but it doesnt feel like it. It has most options that MB and BMW have and is cheaper. It may not have a big V8 but it is more than needed power to drive anywhere. I love the Pre-Collision System, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Smart Access, the 240 watt ML System, Intuitive Parking Assist, and Adaptive Variable Air Suspension.
I have no regrets buying this car. There was a price increase over the 05 model but I just wanted the 06. A car i would rather buy would be a Aston Martin V12 Vanquish S, but that is a little out of my price range so i bought the Lexus....read morehide
