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


Review

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 THAT LONG.


Suggested Improvements

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.

Review

I love this car!! Can't go anywheer and not get noticed. A true joy to drive and great on long road trips. Very nice design and very fast! I would recommend this car to anyone who needs luxury but has to had performance and looks. This car is a 12.5 out of 10. I wasn't even able to test drive it before I bought it, doesn't that tell you something?


Favorite Features

Hardtop conv, Navigation, leather seats, handling....


Suggested Improvements

The only thing I can think of is that the drivers seat needs to be able to lean back more. Otherwise a great great car!

Review

I am experiencing the privilege of owning my dream car. It's amazing that so much power comes from such a quiet engine. From the superb handling to the exquisite design, I am thrilled each time I get behind the wheel. She turns heads and drops jaws! Loving it~


Favorite Features

Sleek design, sound system, hard-top convertible design/ease of operation.

Review

I waited a long time to buy the car of my dreams, and this car has proven to be beyond my dreams. I get comments all the time about the car. Driving with the top down and my long blonde hair blowing in the wind really gets some stares. Love it.. love it.. love it.


Favorite Features

Dark Leather interior and maghoney dashboard really complement the Indigo blue color. I paid the extra money for the chrome wheels... wow...


Suggested Improvements

I can't think of one thing I would change.

Review

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


Favorite Features

Push button hard top workings.


Suggested Improvements

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