Just bought a
2004 LS430 mileage: 33460 cost: $26,500 with Navigation 17inch wheels
Silver with cashmere interior. One previous owner (older lady) purchased from Lexus dealership as a certified pre-owned so it has the 3 year or 100,000 mile coverage.
The car is close to immaculate. After a week of negotiating and almost settling for a car in Texas that I would have had shipped to me in Maryland, the salesman came off of his price. The initial price was $28,800.
I am very happy with owning my first Lexus. I have always admired the 2001-2006 LS430 / Toyota Celsior MC30 not so much a fan of the other body styles.
I am 6ft 4 inches and the legroom is excellent, also the backseat legroom was a major selling point as I have a new child. With the baby seat in the middle position in the back there is still room for two adults, on either side of the babyseat, of my height.
I look forward to having a great experience. I would add that the Dar CArs team in Silver Spring MD seemed a bit overwhelmed by the amount of purchasers of late.

It's time for tire replacement. Currently the car has michelin harmony tires. These tires have been very very smooth. Should I replace with the same? Also, just replaced the front struts...therefore, should I get the a 4 wheel alignment as well?
My car has 144,00 miles. How many miles should I bank on having the car. Car has been maintained very well. I'd love to see it go to 200k or better. I drove the LS430...the ride is about the same ...it just has more bells and whistles for a steep price...but mine is paid for...what do you think?
Also, the radio light has gone out...is this the beginning of the end of the panel lights...if so, what is the average repair bill? Is it a difficult job to do labor wise?

You need to get a hold of a good mechanic, preferably a Lexus/Toyota mechanic. As for the heated not working, it could just be a fuse problem. The front suspension needs to be inspected by a alignment specialist. I am not sure if you want spend a lot for a brand new. If you are planning to keeping the car for a long time then a brand new radio will suit you. You can also find a good radio at the junk yard, EBay or maybe even an ad in the local paper.

Not sure if you noticed, but you responded to a message that is more than 9 years old. Not a problem, as your advice may be helpful to someone else who's having a similar problem, but you might not want to waste time in the future trying to fix a problem that's probably already been solved, or the car sold long ago.

You can go to Sam's Club and buy yourself a set of wipers. They can install it for at no charge as London as you buy it from them. I am not sure is Costco if they can install it for you. The dealer charges $60.00 for a pair is pricey. You can also buy it from an outside guy for less.
