No front end
By Howard on
2003 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)
The front end is non existent and you will end up replacing $400 every time you hit a pot hole. It is beautiful, great acceleration, but the tires and wheel covers will be replaced numerous times. The tires which never go flat get lousy overall mileage. It costs over $400 just to put snow tires on in the winter. That is without buying them at $400 a pop. So if you have thousands to waste because the front end was made for a show room this is a great car.
Nice stereo, great hard top which goes in the trunk automatically, great pick up. Smooth handling and a great look.
Get tires that don't cost $400 each and generally last under 15,000 miles. 2003 model could not take a bump. Tires got bubbles all the time and had to be replaced. At $400 apiece that is no joke. Wheel covers scratch up and look bad because of low front end. Need extra bucks to replace new tire.
