2004 Lexus LS 430 with 73k Miles

For June 27, 2020, our used car find is this 73k mile 2004 Lexus LS 430, which is listed on craigslist by a private seller in the Tampa area for $10,500.

Here’s what makes this car special.

Introduced in 2000 (as a 2001 model), the third generation LS is highly sought after for its understated good looks, quiet ride, and incredible longevity, with examples regularly racking up 200k miles or more with relative ease.

This particular car, with only 73k miles, has tons of life left and looks great in Flint Mica paint, with spotless grey leather inside. The venerable 3UZ-FE V8 engine under the hood makes a healthy 290 hp and 320 ft-lbs of torque, powering the rear wheels through a new-for-2004 six-speed automatic gearbox.

The seller notes that the original grill has been replaced with one without Lexus badging, though the original comes with the sale. The lack of a nav screen (which by now would be quite outdated) is another plus. Also the car sports four new Continental tires.

The asking price of $10,500 is reasonable for a clean, low-mile example of the third-gen LS.
