Review

In 2008, this 96 model still looks great and in my opinion, will remain a classic. Good power and feels solid. Love it!

Great audio.

Review

The best thing about this car is that it is built by Toyota. The next thing is that it is about the best looking since the XKE Jag. The next best thing is that it says Lexus.


Best Features

The way it looks.


Worst Features

There are not enough small spots to put little things.

Review

Bought the SC3000 new and have driven it over 123,000 since purchase in 1996. The car is a marvel; I have never had to replace anything on the car but a strut which started leak at 123,000 miles. Still running on original clutch and brake pads. It is simply impossible to built a better looking or more reliable vehicle.


Best Features

Classic ergonomics and exterior design.


Worst Features

The car is perfect.

Review

My car has over 110,000 miles, and I still smile every time I see it. Looks great, interior is very sharp, and it runs smooth and is well built. I had a 4-Runner previously, and based upon these 2 experiences will stick with Toyota.


Best Features

Styling, quality, ride, comfort, options are all excellent.


Worst Features

Back seat is small, but for short trips 4 men can fit in the car with relative ease. Trunk is also a little small, and there is no way to fold the back seat down for more room. But if its just you and your lady out for a cruise, you can't beat it.

Review

Every time I look at my SC300 I think to myself: What a beautiful machine. Exterior and interior look fantastic. I only paid $15,000 in 12/2002 for a SC300 with 75K miles having a $50,000+ sticker price. Looks and drives like new.


Best Features

Appearance, Reliability, Price (as a used car)


Worst Features

Better gas mileage wouldn't hurt. More back seat room would help too.
