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.
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
Styling, quality, ride, comfort,
options are all excellent.
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.
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
Appearance, Reliability, Price (as a
Better gas mileage wouldn't hurt. More
back seat room would help too.
