More than likely, regardless of the age of our cars, the first generation (2001-2003) will probably settle around ($6,000-$9,000) regardless of miles within the next few years. The 2004-2006 might be...

Takata air bags

Does anyone know with any certainty whether any of our LS430s from 2001-2006 have the Takata air bags? If not, who was the air bag manufacturer for our cars?

I have to say, that many of the original poster's issues have not appeared during my ownership. Yes, the subwoofer is a given, and creaking from control arm bushings will occur. Of course spark plugs...

As many owners will attest, my subwoofer was blown when I purchased my 01 LS430 4 1/2 years ago. I originally had the subwoofer refoamed and reinstalled and it lasted over 4 years before it failed. ...

It's crazy how a company with their most popular tire decides to replace it. I'm not thrilled about going from 11/32nds for the MXV4 to 8/32nds regardless of the hype about better wet traction when...

The Primacy MXV4 has not been discontinued. Because of it's popularity, they are still keeping in production certain sizes. We still need to see what those sizes will be. I spoke with a rep at...

The biggest selling point to me is how absolutely quiet the Primacys are. I drive most of the time with the radio off and there is no road noise to speak of. The highways are silent. Some city roads...

I too have a new set of Primacys on my car and have always loved them. However, I can't say that treadwear is a strong point. If you live in a hot climate (as I do) and do a fair amount of city...

Yes indeed, the Florida roads are brutal on tires, paint, and batteries. However, I never had this happen to any tire I purchased here with so little miles. I was told not to put any tire dressing on...

I manually fold my mirrors every time I park. So far so good on my 2001. I don't want to jinx myself, but every electrical accessory on this old timer works as it should.

What are you driving? How many miles have you put on the Premiers? I was kind of turned off to the lesser tread depth of 8/32nds on the Premiers compared to 11/32nds on the Primacys.

Primacys cracking with 15,000 miles

I purchased a new set of 17 inch Primacy MXV4s (V rated) for my 2001 LS430 4 years ago. Although I don't drive many miles each year, I was still quite surprised to see sidewall cracking/checking as...

I checked every tire with a tire tread depth gauge going from the outer edge inwards, covering every tread along the way. I am now convinced that my issue was under-inflation. The outer treads on...

Thanks Tom57 and everyone for all their input. Yes, under-inflation is where my thoughts are now. Lexus is not specific on tire pressure for V rated tires. H=130mph and 32psi, W=168mph and 35 psi. No...

Jayclapp.....Actually the MXV4 is asymmetrical and can be cross rotated which gives each tire an opportunity to be on every position of the car sooner or later. Great for even wear.

Inner and outer tire wear.

My 2001 Lexus 430 with 115,000 miles has 4 Michelin Primacy MXV4 17s with 15,000 miles on them. I have rotated them twice (cross rotation) and all 4 tires have even tread across except that the outer...

re: AIRBAG RECALL?

Although there hasn't been any mention of the 2001-2006 LS430s being affected by the latest massive airbag recall.......has anyone heard anything different?
