This is a great car on its own right. It is also the best value for the money. The closest match (2003 Mercedes SL-500) costs $40,000 more when equipped similarly!

Incredible Car with roof rattles
By Chartist10 on 03/24/02 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

This car is so fun and special to drive and everyone is looking at you. Ultimate in luxury. The car, however, suffers from roof liner rattles. The top, itself, is solid. The interior liner of the top, however, is an engineering disaster. The roof liner is a separate piece from the side liners, therefore, as they rub against each other, you get rattles. Believe me, this is a problem that needs to be addressed by Lexus. The "fit" lexus designers must have been absent when this liner was created. However, the car is so special that one can overlook this. Just play that incredible sound system at a resonable level and all will be well!

this car does everything well. i know that it will be around for a long time and the relialibility is what makes me want to never look at another jag. the dealer treatmet will keep me from another sl. mb treats you like they did you a favor taking your money. it amazes me that jag and mb still do not get it ! i gusee they will loose all their market share before they give a decent rent a car during service bill

Hands Down the Best Convertible availble

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

Review

I've been driving my car for the past couple of months and i love it!!! i've driven various convertibles and couples before and the acceleration and handling on the SC430 is phenomenal, and the styling inside and out is just breath taking... RETRACTABLE HARD TOP and Navigation System makes this car even more awesome... and with my bad back run flats are an absolute heaven sent.

Does it get any better than this?

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

Review

After owning a CLK 430 and an SL500 I cannot imagine buying anything else.This car is better than the new SL..faster from 0-60,smoother ride..more wood..bigger tires and $25,000 less. Lexus has found a way to take the very best of Jag and Mercedes and make it better.After driving my SC430 now for 3 months,I like it more now than the day I bought it.

Almost Perfect!

Review

Don't be swayed by the low marks some have given to this vehicle. Most are not owners of this car & probably have never been in one, let alone driven one. Few cars on the road that elicit as many stares, thumbs up, cat calls and compliments as this car does. This car is powerful but it is not a true sports car. It has some sports car qualities but it is more of a touring roadster. This car is a super convertible but when the top is up it is a fully functional coupe without any compromising. Ultra luxurious, finest audio system around, 6 cd in-dash changer, best DVD navigation system, ulra-low emissions, smooth ride, quiet and no wind noise with the top down or up.

Ihave many cars including Ferrari, Rolls, Bentley...Astin Martin..did love my Rolls a lot, but the Lexus SC 430SC is all my dreams wrapped up in one car..its a convertible..its a hardtop..its most comfortable..beautiful interior...not a sleek body style,,but all in all a winner..for the money..a real buy....
