1992 Lexus SC 400 2dr Coupe


I had 2 Nissans before this SC400, and wow what a jump up this car has been! The seat fits like a glove, and heated seats are excellent in cold weather. People have complained about this car's wet weather and snow traction since it is rear-wheel drive, but I've done fine through this car's first New England winter. It's not a stump puller but 250HP and nearly that in torque is PLENTY! These cars are very hard to find for sale; nobody seems to want to let them go so do your homework and make sure you find one that's been taken care of! The only issue with this car is if your power steering leeks, it drips right onto the alternator, so check to see if it has had recent work in those areas.

Best Features

Beautiful body, flattering from every angle. I might as well describe a supermodel. Plenty of power. Pleasant exhaust note at wide open throttle, and quiet at "around town" speeds. It's my dream car.

Worst Features

Stitch the leather instead of painting, and a manual transmission.
