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


Lexus cut corners with The switches and controls. They appear to be straight out of a toyota corolla. I think the steering wheel is too. Ride is harsh on the run flats. They last for about 5000 miles and then start rumbling really bad. Paid $1600 for new tires in less then one year of casual driving. Dealer says this is normal. The seat belt position is to low for taller drivers. The 1991 LS 400 we bought new was a much better car. Clearly, corners were cut on this one. I will be getting rid of this car ASAP. Anyone want to buy a Nieman Marcus Silver Belle Edition SC430 with new tires?

Best Features

seats are comfortable. Sufficient Power. Hard Top Conv. keeps the water out. Engine is very quiet.

Worst Features

More luxary appointments. Stop taking parts out of the Toyota parts bin. More room for a conventional spare so the run flats can be avoided. So many people own a Lexus that dealer service is suffering somewhat.
