The LS 430 first year of production was model year 2001 and the last year was 2006. I think the only important upgrade during this run was model year 2004. The look did not change much for the entire run.
IMO, the LS 430 is one of the finest cars ever made. I think you can still get one that is certified going back as far as 2005, possibly 2004, which gives you virtually a new car warranty of 3 years or up to 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. There should be some great buys out there if you check around at lexus dealers.
My 2006 averages a little over 23 mpg overall with probably 75% around town. On longer trips it will get close to 30 mpg. Unbelievable for a v-8.

Can they be maintained and repaired (warranty-wise) at Toyota dealers???

That I don't know. I have always used Lexus dealers, especially for warranty work because the ones in my area are really good. Also even with a used certified Lexus you always get a loaner, etc.
If you are in an area where there is no Lexus dealer I would imagine something could be worked out with Toyota/Lexus.

It is about time to replace the tires on my 2006 LS 430 after 35k on the original tires.The Michelin primacy get good reviews and I am leaning in that direction. Will appreciate feedback, good/bad, on this tire. fyi--I live in the Wash, DC area so snow is not an issue for me
This is my first post in more than a year and I continue to be pleased with the quality of the discussion and the Edmund's' staff that make it all happen.

Your LS430 deserves, and has earned, the quietest and most comfortably riding tires available out there in the marketplace.

I am also thinking about replacement tires for my LS 430 after 40,000 miles. Are you saying the Michelin Primacy mxv4 is the best tire out there?

No, I think the Bridgestone Turanza summer tire is the quietest and most comfortable riding.

I put the Michelins on my LS-430, and the difference is amazing. Quiet, smooth, great handling. I think they're the best I've ever had.

But wait until you have driven them 8-10,000 miles......

You have piqued (sp?) my interest...what should one expect in 8-10K miles, as I have those tires on my Crown Vic..
