Review

I bought my dream car in 2003,a brand new 2004 SC430. Among other disappointments, I have rust problem. The alloy wheel is rusting out. The body also have many bubbles, under is rust. It is so disappointing. I did not expect it from a Lexus.


Best Features

Love the hard top.

Review

I purchased this vehicle used and sold my 1999 Mercedes SL 500. This car is a pleasure to drive in every sense. I wish that they would take out the back seat and place a self like Mercedes. Otherwise outstanding.


Best Features

Comfort and acceleration.


Worst Features

Back seat. Either remove or make a lay over to place packages on.

Review

I love the design, comfort and hardtop/convertibility ease. Plenty of power while not a race car.


Best Features

Push button hard top workings.


Worst Features

Harsh ride on rough roads might be solved by "ride adjustment" feature.

Review

I love driving my SC 430. I also love the attention I get when I'm driving, anywhere. I also own a Dodge Durango, but when I'm driving it, I don't get nearly the respect from other drivers that I do when I'm driving my SC. It is really a glamourous vehicle that is apparently deceiving. Other drivers will pull next to me, idle at the stop light, and think they'll be able to take off and get in front of me. Ha!! My baby has GET UP!!! Every now and then I get to just blow her out, with the top down; the ride is incredibly smooth and intoxicating.

Review

This car has incredible brakes! It will stop on a dime! It corners well and handles well and is a dream to drive. The steering is quite sensitive compared to other cars.


Best Features

The best part of a Lexus (for me) is the reliability factor. The best part of this car in particular is the hard convertible top.


Worst Features

The only thing that I don't like are the cup holders but that is true of every Lexus I have owned and presently I have 3. The company is just "cup holder" challenged.
