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


Review

Superb car, the best I've ever owned. Great looking, fun to drive and it's a Lexus. Beats BMW I sold to buy it by *miles*.


Favorite Features

Hard top is awesome!


Suggested Improvements

I don't agree that Lexus should get rid of the rear seats - it's the best place to put luggage. If they wanted to make them people-usable; well, that's a different matter,

Review

Wanted the security of hard top but also wanted a convertible. Had a Mercedez two seater prior to this car and I liked it but the SC430 at least has room for groceries or small children in back seat. Handles well, great performance. Completely pleased with this car.


Favorite Features

Nav system - never had one before but couldn't live without it now. The style is distinctive and very attractive.


Suggested Improvements

Had a nail in the run flat tire and it was very expensive to replace but now they can be purchased much more cheaply. It would be nice if I could have gotten adults in the back seat but it's a little too small.

Review

Purchased this car a year ago and still loving it. The engine is silky smooth and quiet and will give you awesome acceleration when you want it. The interior is the best around with an awesome sound system and navigation system. The materials used in this car is second to none and the fit and finish is superb. Anyone that thinks a V8 lincoln can out accelerate this Lex is dreaming. The interior is a million times better than any Corvette. Anyone that thinks Lexus uses corolla parts in this car has obviously never driven an SC. The SC430 draws a crowd unlike the outdated vette.


Favorite Features

-6 disc in-dash Mark Levinson sound system. -Automatic hardtop -300hp engine -Best service in the world


Suggested Improvements

-Larger trunk -More power(We can always use more power)

Review

This is an absolutely outstanding car. It is fun to drive this car. The stereo system is awesome and so is everything else with the car. If you love to drive a well priced quality covertible sports car, this is it.


Favorite Features

Stereo, road handling, and looks.


Suggested Improvements

A more innovative design to store a donut spare that doesn't take up all the trunk space.
