What are Some Common Problems with Lexus LS 430?
A smooth ride, quiet power, luxury accoutrements galore -- your LS 430 has it all. The luxury sedan isn't without a few issues, though. Good thing you came to us here at Longo Lexus for advice on what to watch out for -- and what to do about it.
Here's a few. Stay on top of them, plus regular maintenance (replace air filters, change wiper blades, and so on), and the car should run for decades -- hundreds of thousands of miles.
LS 430 models from between 2001 and 2006 have premium Mark Levinson stereo systems. They can have volume problems -- notably, either no sound at all sometimes, or an increase to max volume without you even adjusting it. If your car's got 100,000 miles or more on it these days, chances are that you've either had the problem already, or you will eventually.
The fix: a revised amplifier. Swap your old one out, and you should be good to go.
If your LS 430 has just more than 120,000 miles on it, and you're having trouble shifting at low speeds, there's a good chance it's because you need a software update. Models from between '01 and '06 had this issue. Get yours "flashed" or reprogrammed at a Lexus dealer, and it should solve the problem. If it doesn't, you may need a transmission replacement.
Defective Fuel Tanks
2005 and earlier LS 430 models (those with a little more than 100,000 miles these days) have a known issue where their gas tanks may not be able to be filled up all the way. The issue's with the fuel filler neck; replace that, and it should go away.
