This is the best vehicle I have ever
own. The design of the vehicle is
simply gorgeous. The engine performs
wonderfuly, the interior is a work of
art. And the speed which the car can
reach is enough for me. (personal
highest yet was 156, even though some
magazines say it can't go that fast The
car is simply the best out there.
Beautiful, reliable, fun to drive, good
value and simply Lexus. It's amazing
the responses some people have when
they see this car past them.
Navigation system is wonderful and a
great help. The climate control system
is excellent, fast to react. And the
Mark Levinson audio system can not be
beaten in my opinion.
Only thing that I can see that may need
improvement is the amount of trunk
I owned 3 Porsches and a Mercedes E55.
The SC430 lacks true sports car feel
but is the best built. A hardtop
convertible was our preference.
We could not rationalize or justify the
$40,000 price difference of the SL500.
The Mercedes CLK500.It felt cheap and
plastic-filled - ditto the new Cadilac.
As for the back seat and small trunk
the SC430 has more than my Porsches,
the SL500 or Cadilac. With the top up
we have room for both sets of golf
clubs and luggage - meaning we can
travel with this car where we could not
with the SL500 or Caddy.
The hardtop convertible is fantastic!
The car looks great with the top up,
which I cannot say about most
convertibles. The stereo system and
interior is the finest. Great
performance without giving up comfort.
The SC430 has the BEST Navigation
system -- easy & functional.
More 'outlets' for phone, etc.
Tiptronic transmission, chrome wheels,
more steering wheel controls.
