The Best of the Best

2003 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)

Review

This is my second SC. Replaced a MB SEC 500 AMG and will continue with the Lexus nameplate because of reliability and quality.

Tried all the sports cars and for the tall person-this is the car. A lot of thumbs up on the highway. You won't be incognito. Just fun to drive.

Lexus `SC430 engine blew up
By Ronald Sage on 07/19/03 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2003 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)

Review

In about nine inches of water on the road the car stalled and the engine blew. Lexus could not explain it and refused to cover it. Apparantly in any situation where there is water over the lowest point of the bumper it scoops into the engine compartment. This appears to be a serious design defect.

The best car I've ever owned
By lucky boy on 07/16/03 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2003 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)

Review

This is a great car, tight, reliable, posh, thoughtfully executed. Everything about it suggests quality-- the finish, looks, touch of the controls. I owned the previous model (SC 400) which was also very sexy, but harder to control--road feel, handling, and control of this car are greatly improved. Run flat tires occasionally transmit too much of uneven roads to driver. I look forward to enjoying this car for years to come.

Great Car! Can't beat the looks and the gizmo's. Real power and performance to boot in a well thought out and executed vehicle. Great value compared to more expensive SL 500 (had one earlier on too!)

best Lexus ever

2003 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)

Review

after 3 911s an sc400 and an ls400 - this care is the very best. The retractable hard top makes it the best of both worlds. Fit and finish are perfect. Adequate space with top up. The engine is smooth with power plus - handling sweetly.

A Boring Convertible

Review

For a performance convertible this has to be the most boring for the dollar. Our Volvo S60R T5 is more fun, and a better value. It pales in comparison to the Z06 for a performance vehicle.

Review

I bought my SC430 during the early release. I now have 20,000 miles on it and have had absolutely no problems with it. I like the style, what a car for the price. I use it as a two seater, so no complaints about the back seat. I find the storage sufficient even with the top down. I would recommend a slightly tighter front suspension. The run flat tires have been great and holding up much longer than predicted. Best car for the price in it's class.

Car is absolultely stunning in every way. My friends love the value you get and all the neat gadgets. Fuel economony is okay, but the ride is well worth going to the pump more often!

Review

Fun car to drive. You feel special with the top down. Nice power, great sound, convenience of automatic roof is great. Wouldn't want to drive this car on long trips, its a bit cramped. Luxurious feel.
