2004 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


Review

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!


Best Features

Interior fit and finish is fantastic. Sound system is very good.


Worst Features

Do not order run flat tires!

2004 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is a fabulous, fun car. I don't
care for the cupholders. Doesn't hold
bottled water very good. My only
critizism.


Worst Features

Cupholders not efficient. Water bottles fall over. Vision from right and left rear difficult.

Review

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
repaved.
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.


Best Features

Hard top Convertible, Sound System, Steering Wheel, Nav System, Acceleration,Interior Design, Cup Holders


Worst Features

Better Handling Tires, Tighter Suspension and road feel,

Review

This is the second Lexus SC that I have
owned, and I have loved both. This one
is especially sharp because of its
convertible status. I feel safe in the
car and have not had any problems with
either cars other than the required
maintenance...how many others can say
this? I looked around when deciding to
buy a new car(especially Mercedes-Benz)
and couldn't find anything else with
almost every luxury amenity that there
is,for the price. I would do it all
over again. It is definitely a HEAD-
TURNER.


Best Features

My favorite features are the sound system, run-flat tires, sleek exterior,all of the luxury amenities that come standard and the reliability of the vechicle.


Worst Features

I can think of two improvements: take out the back seat and put in the tracking system that now comes in the LS model. One more thing, change the cup holder from a stand-up to one that is built into the console. You can make it a little faster,if you wish....just joking!

turner. fun to drive, fast, and safe.

down, as it does up.
