Best in Class!

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

Review

I can not thin of a better car for the money. Gorgeous style. Super comfortable. Powerful and fun to drive. Innovative technology and Lexus quality and service make earn it the highest marks. Nothing beats this hard top convertible. Best sound system and Navigation in the industry! Well the Benz SL is appealing it is not worth the $100k+ and the long waiting list. Not to mention MB's lower marks in service and quality

The Relentless Pursuit of Luxury

Review

Relax, grin like a fool and enjoy a friend, the scenery and your favorite music for a 10 minute or a 10 day drive. Meander, wander, toddle & wave - plenty of people will likely be watching. The sc430 handling will not excite the "pure" sports car enthusiast: BMW & Audi handle better, Corvette launches faster, and so on. The sc430 can be made to go fast and corner hard, but the suspension, steering & seats are not really set up for it: This is a modern day Packard! Yes, this car *is* fast, as an artifact of excellent engineering, but that is not the main point. Luxury is. And BMW/Audi/Corvette &c can't match it.

It doesn't get much better than this!

It is like driving a Lear Jet! The room goes down in seconds much to the amazement of all around me. When I come out from wherever I've been there's usually someone(s) around the car. Lexus has hit a homerun with this car!

SC430 A GREAT, FUN CAR

Review

I've owned several sports cars and other fun cars, but none compares to the fun and exhillaration of driving the SC430. The quality of this car is the defining trait---from design of interior and exterior to the engine and transmission. Then there is the aspect of it being a hardtop coupe changing to a convertible in 25 seconds. Give it a try when shopping for porsches, bmw's, mercedes, etc!

Review

Took a while for me to decide on the Mercedes or the Lexus. Am I glad I purchased the Lexus. I am amazed by the build quality, everything works with quiet percision. Great Acceleration, can drive in 50degree weather with the windows up in comfort, great sound system, and wonderful dealer support.

This car is unblievable, and is great for this price comparing the Mercedes SL and the Jaguar XK. Get it.

The Pleasure of Its Company

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

Review

Flawless. Wonderful handling and acceleration coupled with the most elegant in design and execution, both interior and exterior. Unusually quiet with the top down, and strikingly so with top up. This car is a real pleasure to drive and enjoy. This car is significantly superior to my former BMW M3 convertible with far better reliability and dealer support.

The Lexus Dream SC430
By Kent Smith on 10/06/02 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

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

Review

This is a LUXURY sports car. Don't be fooled by reviews that think this needs to be a Ferrari in the corners, but it certainly holds its own. There is so much automation in this car, you have to do very little to drive down the road. Everyone I show the car and give rides to is in awe of the fantastic look, feel, ride, and comfort provided. I have the run-flat tires, but only 1000 miles so far with no complaints so far. It is as fun with the top up as it is down. If you need to move 3 or 4 our people a lot, this is not your car. It is good for the occasional short run to lunch with 3.
