LS2004

Everything about the 2004 LS redesign was devised to make "the finest luxury sedan in America",[1] even more extraordinary.

The LS infuses luxury, thoughtfulness and passion into every aspect of your driving experience. Indulgence reaches state-of-the-art form in the LS, with convenience options including Dynamic Laser Cruise Control,[2] Intuitive Parking Assist and a voice-activated DVD navigation system [3] as well as standard features like rain-sensing windshield wipers. The interior is luxuriously appointed with supple leather trim and rich wood accents. And while the ride is smooth, the LS 430's powerful 4.3-liter V8 engine is nothing less than invigorating.

[1] Based upon independent testing by AMCI, as of June 2001. [2] Dynamic Laser Cruise Control was designed to assist the driver and is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Please see your Owner's Manual for further details. [3] The Lexus DVD Navigation System is designed to assist in locating an address or point of interest. Discrepancies may be encountered between the system and your actual location. Changes in street names, road closures, traffic flow or other road system changes may affect the accuracy of the mapping software. Rely upon your common sense to decide whether or not to follow a specified route. Detailed coverage not available in every city. Optional periodic geographic updates available at an additional cost. See your Navigation System Owner's Manual and your Lexus dealer for further details. [4] Tires fitted with 18 x 7.5-in and 17 x 7.5-in wheels are expected to experience greater wear than conventional tires. Tire life may be substantially less than 20,000 miles, depending on driving conditions. [5] The Lexus driver's, front passenger's, front seat-mounted side airbags and side curtain airbags are a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). The driver's and front passenger's airbags are designed to deploy in severe (usually frontal) collisions where the magnitude and duration of the forward deceleration of the vehicle exceed the design threshold. The side airbags and side curtain airbags are designed to deploy in certain types of severe side-impact collisions. In all other accidents, the airbags will not deploy. To decrease the risk of injury from a deploying airbag, always wear seatbelts, sit upright in the middle of the seat, and do not lean against the door. Do not put objects in front of an airbag or around the seatback. Do not use rearward-facing child seats in any front passenger seat. The force of a deploying airbag SRS may cause serious injury or death. Please see your Owner's Manual for further instructions. [6] Lexus Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. Please see your Owner's Manual for further details. [7] Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits of ABS. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake-system maintenance and tire and road conditions. [8] The Lexus Tire Pressure Monitor System alerts the driver when tire pressure is critically low. For optimal tire wear and performance, tire pressure should be checked regularly with a gauge; do not rely solely on the monitor system. See your Owner's Manual for details. [9] 178 watts at 0.1% THD. [10] Mark Levinson is a registered trademark of Madrigal Audio Labs, Inc., a division of Harman International. [11] Continuous average power, all channels driven, at 0.01% THD; 20-20,000 Hz. [12] Service limited to certain carriers. Please see your Lexus dealer for details. [13] The backup camera, available only with the navigation system, does not provide a comprehensive view of the entire rear area of the vehicle. You should also look around outside your vehicle and use your mirrors to confirm rearward clearance. [14] While there are several Bluetooth® phones in the market, Lexus recommends the phones listed on its Web site because they have been tested and meet Lexus' high standards for voice quality and functionality. Note that the recommendation of Lexus is not a warranty of the performance for any phone and that some problems may occur with any type of handset based on the service coverage available in your area. [15] Dynamic Laser or Dynamic Radar Cruise Control was designed to assist the driver and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices. Please see your Owner's Manual for important cautions and instructions. [16] The Lexus Pre-Collision System is designed to help reduce the crash speed and damage in certain frontal collisions only. It is not a collision avoidance system and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors, such as speed, driver input and road conditions. Please see your Owner's Manual for further information. [17] These performance capacity figures are for comparison only, and were obtained with prototype vehicles by professional drivers using special safety equipment and procedures. Do not attempt. [18] 2004 EPA-estimated mpg. Actual mileage may vary.
