This is as close to the perfect car as
I have ever driven. The driver and
passenger are left to want for nothing -
- all accessories are provided.
Comfort, luxury, excellent ride and
power are provided in large measures
The car is so well integrated into a
near perfect drivign experience that it
really isn't possible to single out any
one feature that is superior -- they
all are. If forced to pick one, the
convertible top is a joy to use and
completes the sleek design to
CAR RIDES VERY ROUGH IN AS LITTLE AS
12000 MILES WITH THE RUN FLAT TIRES.
ALSO PRODUCES A DARTING AND JOLTING
FELLING FROM VERY SMALL ROAD BUMPS.
BEST TO DRIVE A USED ONE WITH ABOUT
10000 MILES ON THE TIRES BEFOR YOU
PURCHASE, YOU MAY DECIDE AGINST IT.
ALSO THE RUN FLATS ARE ABOUT $500 EACH
AND NEED TO BE RELACED AT ABOUT EVERY
20000 MILES IF YOU CAN TAKE THE RIDE
DONT SELL SUCH A NICE CAR WITH REQIRED
RUN FLAT TIRES. THEY PRODUCE SUCH A
ROUGH RIDE IN AS LITTLE AS 12000
MILES. ITS NOT LUXURY IF YOUR CAR IS
BOUNCING AROUND WITH EVERY BUMP IN THE
ROAD! AFTER SPENDING $60,000 YOU HAVE
SECOND THOUGHTS ABOUT THE CAR.
A wonderful car if you don't mind bone
rattling jolts hitting potholes. Run
flat tires are a nightmare: I have two
new tires and two new wheels on a car
with less than 10K mileage. Two other
tires have 'bubbles' meaning
replacement soon. My wife hates to be a
passenger unless we are on perfectly
paved road. Avoid this car unless you
only do highway driving!
Interior fit and finish is fantastic.
Sound system is very good.
SC430 offers the luxury car owner an
uplifting experience. Make sure you
won't be driving in a snowstorm or on a
road surface that has not been recently
The run-flats are poor performers on
any surface other then what is shown in
the alluring Lexus brochure. Solve this
and it could be one of my all time
favorites and I have been fortunate to
have owned a 911C4, SC400, Delorean
(well that's another story)
Have a spare SUV in the garage, then
wait for the great spring or fall day,
crank up your favorite tunes on a sound
system that is as good with the top off
at 75 mph as when it's up, and enjoy
what very few others will ever know.
