45 years for another metal roof convert

2002 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)

Review

I've always wanted a convertible. My 1957 Ford Skyliner was almost perfect. But the embarassment to an 18 year when the roof refused to close was tough. I drove my SC430 off the lot expecting it to happen here. Wrong! It never failed.The gas mileage, about 18 overall, was better than expected. I was stopped in all weather by at least one person a day asking "what is it? It's the most beautiful car I ever saw." Someone living in New England better not drive in snow or ice. Those wide 18" wheels & 300hp engine has no traction even on level ground. I dropped mine off after 24 months & 32,000 miles, happy with the experience and hoping for spring.

Favorite Features

Styling is a subjective at best but I have nothing but praise for it. The only car to match the features, (metal roof, 300hp, GPS & full power options) was the Mercedes at just about twice the price. The Mark Levison sound system is great.

Suggested Improvements

Tracion, if possible, otherwise, don't touch a thing.
