1993 Lexus SC 400 2dr Coupe


Great car, pick a gently used for a great choice. I have driven other cars with spice - my sc400 has over a 10 year period been - hands down - the best car that i have ever owned. In 1999 i purchase my certified car for $25,000 when it had ~35,000 miles on it - it now has 125,000 miles on it. The few repairs were: antenna motor, driver's door window motor, starter, alternator, power steering pump and then brakes, tires, & regular tune-up stuff - since i owned the car my average service costs to keep the car in very good running condition has been $81.00 per month - a blend of dealer work (starter / 60K service) and private mechanic. 17 years old and it still kicks. Timeless lines.

Best Features

The shape,dash,low to ground, quite cabin & it is very comfortable. Struts lasted for ever, turns great, smooth but not too soft. Long drives - when you get out of the car you are NOT beat up. Decent highway mileage ~ 21MPG and decent trunk size, sound system. Most of all the reliability.

Worst Features

Tach & Speedo needle lamps fail. Starter -is costly to replace. Not a good car in snow and ice, the weight is over the front wheels & this is a rear wheel drive car - keep good tires and limit driving on bad days.
