Default Rear Seat Fold Down?

Can someone tell me if my $55,000 luxury car (GS430) has fold down rear seats, or am I having a bad nightmare??

If you paid $55k for a car that is 2 generations old, you got ripped. It's worth closer to $10k.

guys, take a deep breath :-) I was referencing the sticker price (it didn't have folding seats then either) and no, I didn't pay anything near $55K for my 11 year old Lexus.

But it really is disappointing that the seats don't come down...

I expected it to at least have a pass-through in the rear center armrest area for longer items (like skis). IIRC my C32 AMG had this.

But it hasn't been prohibitive. That's what the wife's RX is for.

I just went through the same thing over Thanksgiving as I was preparing for a road-trip. Completely unexpected.

yeah it sucks..... the 2006+ has them.. sad to say even the ISx50 has a pass thru in the rear center in that small *** car.... not to mention some 1990's hondas... smh .. BUT!! you can unscrew the 2 bolts behind the headrest and have it semi fold forward if you plan on traveling for xmas lol
