    LS's dont need to be towed, since they dont break down


    If you compare the STS to the LS then they are basically even, i was comparing the deville to the LS.
    Well then, let me get a cloth for the egg on my face!

    Re: Deville or Lexus LS430

    funny thing is, as much as i love it, ill probably get rid of it in the next 3-6 months. it is boring. it truly is the best in luxuxry transportation available. its glaring weakness is that it is mearly transportation. with little excitement. but it is nice to not have to go to the dealer for repairs and the resale is unbelievable.

    Currently im thinking 750i by the end of summer, we'll see.

    If it's a good car you don't HAVE to sell it.......what about the Mercedes coupe you were thinking of getting last fall? Wasn't it a CL or something like that one I posted and we talked about it...I would rather have the 750 over a Benz.

    I do like the styling of the current Deville and the DTS seems very sporty to me.

    Re: Deville or Lexus LS430

    Lexus owners who want something more exciting don't buy an LS. They buy a GS. That's got more sports-appeal to it. What the LS is, is the perfect vehicle for somebody who's looking for ultimate luxury. That's a silent interior, ride of glass, amazing comfort.. Lexus hit the nail right on the head for this demographic.

    The LS is a boring MB wannabe style wise. The GS is just ugly!

    Wink Re: Deville or Lexus LS430

    It goes without saying that I always prefer Deville . Nothing compares to Cadillac .Plus , Lexus is a re-badged Toyota in a sense (and a luxurious one ) However, Cadillac is unique and just bids to be excellent

    Revisiting this thread and rewording the same point I made earlier:
    My eyes love the Deville. My inner-accountant prefers the Lexus.

    Thumbs down Re: Deville or Lexus LS430

    Regardless of it's dynamic merits as a car, the LS is just so crucifyingly dull to look at, especially the exterior. Also, and I have no idea what this means, but a neighbor of mine has a new one, and I get carsick every time I ride in the thing, which at this point is practically never.

    Re: Deville or Lexus LS430

    Just saw this thread......I am currently seriously considering trading my Deville for a LS 430 Ultimate.

    I love the Deville.....however its not even a close call.

    Re: Deville or Lexus LS430

    Huge difference in car - huger difference in price (between a used 98 DeVille and a used 2000 or newer LS430 ultimate).. The LS430 ultimate is expensive - and rightly so.

    I just got back from a vacation in which I rode in my friend's family's new 430. It is a nice car. I think it is a nicer car than a new Deville. I do not, personally, think it rides better than my Brougham, and I think the Brougham's leather is nicer. The Brougham also, at least according to my comparison of Consumer reports measurements, has more leg, head, shoulder and trunk room as well as more trailer towing capacity. However, obviously the Brougham is not as technologically advanced and does not have navigation, airbags, blah blah blah, and is almost 20 years old. If you don't care about that, or acceleration, then I vote Brougham. If you do, then the Lexus is the best NEW mainstream luxury car out there (save a Rolls possibly), because the new Deville does not really beat it out in any category except, perhaps, character and passenger capacity.

    my everyday car is an SC430 , nice car but not really a sportscar.Compared to the Cadillacs they are a bit more expensive than the Cadillacs overhere.
