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


Review

I can tell you that the SC has been the car I have enjoyed, it is fun! Comming from an LS430 I was used to a very soft ride. I would say the SC's suspension is the equivielent to most German cars, and wonderful!! If you are coming from a Porsche or BMW you will think the ride is a bit softer than what you are used to, if comming from a cruiser then you may think it's a bit tight, either way 24 hours and you will be in love with the SC. Seats are much more comfortable the German competitors, and engine is quiet which is nice during long drives. The car has personality and carisma that few cars have. Love it!


Best Features

Looks, depenabilty, Sporty yet quiet, Lexus service.


Worst Features

Park assist (sonar) to help with low curbs.

Review

When we purchased the sc430 we had to almost wrestle another couple for the keys . People beg for rides,whistle often and generaly thumbs up this curvaciously styled auto. It is a Fine car, well built, solid and QUIET; that does everyday driving with a graciousness, good manners and slippery fast acceleration. We fabricate excuses to take the car for a ride-this one is a keeper .


Best Features

the navigation system is top drawer and the sound system self adjusting as is the automatic heating /cooling system the lights are simply brilliantly done !


Worst Features

a triptronic -shifter for an occasional burst through the gears. bumper cameras for those tight parking places.

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


Review

Purchased this vehicle after test driving the Jaguar XKR. Not as fast as the Jag, but blew it away in the comfort, value,and ergonomics dept.The peace of mind of the hardtop and the serenity when the top is helped my decision.


Best Features

Ya gotta love the folding hardtop and the stereo.


Worst Features

Only complaint is that the cruise loses its memory after a complete stop.

Review

This car is just a lot of fun to drive. It is smooth, comfortable. The dashboard is well laid out and convenient to use. The navigation system is outstanding. The top retracts with great style. This car is beautiful to see moving or parked.


Best Features

The convenience of the dash, the retractable top, the Navigation System.


Worst Features

Manual transmission and front wheel drive so I could drive it in snow.
