- Smooth riding car
- Excessive wind noise; Defective inside trim; Noise eminating from underside while at the halt

In August I traded my LS 430 for a new 2008 LS 460 expecting another very quiet and smooth automobile. This was not the case. The new car has a very klonking sound in the engine that that the dealer claims to be the mechanical fuel pump. They also claim that all new LS 460 s have this noise.
There is also drive train noises that was partially solved by changing the Bridgestone tires for Michelin tires.
I would be more than happy to trade back to my LS 430...read morehide
