If you're a DIYer, you're going to like the transmission in the 01-03 better than the 04-06. The 01-03 has the same trans as the 98-00 LS400, while the 04-06 has a "sealed" transmission - no...

Those Texas Lexus are where it's at. I flew one way to Dallas to grab mine and drove it back to MD. What you lose in heated seats you gain in pristine undercarriage!

Congrats and welcome! If you're replacing all the fluids, don't forget the differential, and maybe the power steering fluid as well.

The 5qt jugs are only about $25 at Walmart, so that's just about half off. Nice find!

Here in the DC area I see half a dozen 430s a day, but a week or two passes between sightings of another 400.

Yeah, it's tough to read. And it's irritating that dirty fluid is easier to read than fresh. You might try letting it settle down the dipstick tube for 15 minutes or so after pouring so you don't...

Your son with the Roadstar has the better bike of the two. :) I've got one as well (a 2002) and they are the LS of cruisers - built to last and will run forever.

Look at the bright side - at least you have a dipstick tube! Think of the hassle 04-06 owners have to go through to do the same preventive maintenance.

I thought the LS430 originally came with 16" wheels standard, then later went to 17"s?

It works for the phone as well, though all it does is send the call audio to the car speakers. There's no additional microphone wired in so it has to use the phone's mic.

The tilt steering repair you saw is most likely for the earlier generation 400 and doesn't work for the 98-00.

"I wanted a reliable car for my daughter so I bought an 18 year old one with just under 200000 miles on it."
