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?
This is an excellent vehicle( and the
4th Lexus I have purchased). I also
have a LS 430.
Fun to drive, powerful engine, great
pickup and fast and easy to handle on
the Interstates as well as around
town.The car attracts attention with
its outstanding styling.
The sound system is outstanding and the
GPS system is almost as good as that in
my LS430( unhappily, no live Lexus
link, otherwise just as good.)
Excellent instrumentation- Superb
interior , excellent sound system,I

the retainer straps on the seats are
not very effective. I really never use

I purchased the SC430 as a retirement gift to
myself and drive it every day. It does not sit in the
gararge. I have driven it from Virginia to the Florida
Keys a few times and have taken many other trips.

easy to use and learn.

This car has been my one splurge, and
it has been worth it. I love this car,
and I love seeing more women driving
it. This back seat area is small, but
I've gotten my grandchildren back there
easily, and my shopping bags. I love
the 8 cylinder because it gives it so
much pick up. I love the hardtop
because I feel safer than I would with
a cloth top. There is no better
exterior design; the interior design is
luxurious; I've had another Lexus, and
I love their reliability. It's a man
magnet! I never get tired of watching
the hardtop going into the trunk with a
push of a button. It's a love fest!
No doubt--my favorite feature and what
makes this car stand out from all
others is the exterior design!
Secondly, the hardtop going into the
trunk with the push of a button!
It's kind of hard to reach back and get
Thus far I love my new vehicle. It is
comfortable and sporty looking. When
playing the radio, the stereo does not
seem quite as dynamite as my LS 400
that I use to have. This may be
bacause it is in a smaller space with
fewer speakers. The sound is good but
not as good. I can tell that the paint
is going to scratch really easy. I
have indigo blue (or it may be that it
shows up more on darker colors).
Overall I love the car and I would buy
it again in a heart beat. It is a
smooth ride with all of the classy
I love the color woodgrain and leather
combination. Of course the convertible
roof is unique. My favorite thing is
probably the lines of the car.It looks
Definitely it needs xm radio and
onstar. Also, the seatbelts are kinda
hard to get to when you are buckling up.
