The last Lexus I bought, in 2003, was a 1992 with ~151,000 miles. Seller had receipts for water pump, timing belt replacements at 141,000.
#9 of 12 2002 LS 430 suspension

I'm curious about the designation "Sport Suspension" which appears behind the front wheelwell on a 2002 LS 430 I'm interested in. The car does seem to handle very well considering the criticisms that the suspension is too soft in the literature, also the ride is pleasant, but certainly not "floaty." I find no reference in the literature to a "Sport Suspension" option for the car, and am wondering if anyone can sort this out for me, thanks,

Shoman I have an 04 with the sport suspension. It basically has polyurathane bushing, larger sway bars, stiffer struts and 18" rims. Mine has 140k miles on it and still rides like when it was new. I'm very glad I waited for the car with that option, made a big difference in the cars performance IMHO

I own a 2001 LS430 with 100K. It is probably one of the most reliable cars I have ever owned......and I have had many cars. It seems to be absolutely bulletproof other than the weak audio system. You can't go wrong with this car from 01-06. 04 has a quirky transmission on the early models. Great car.

I own a 1996 LS-400 with 374k miles with zero issues to-date. It just started a valve tapping, and the ball joints need to be replaced, but other than that it's been a fantastic car. Did you replace the timing belt and water pump at 100k miles? If not, do it, change the oil every 3k miles, and enjoy the ride..
