2002 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)
Bought the car 1 year ago @ 12 years of age with 100K and loving. All original equipment is still functioning perfectly and car is running strong, with the exception of 3 busted speakers that I replaced.
As long as you are okay with purchasing a
grand tourer instead of a sports car , you'll love it too.
Smooth, quite, quick, bullet proof reliability and averaging about +21 mpg in mostly spirited highway driving.
Vehicle Stability Control is pretty amazing, put the pedal down in a turn and the over-steer will become evident, luckily you'll hear a couple beeps followed by some ABS clicks and car will correct
itself perfectly every time.
Easy to do preventative maintenance on.
Replacing the runflats is a must, and OEM wheels while you're at it.
Original speakers are cheap and stereo has custom ohm rating, making non-OEM options troublesome to find.
Suspension is way too soft for a "sports car".
