2005 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


Have two lexus cars in our household. Both cars are an exceptional value. Test drove all german imports and by far, the Lexus has proven to be superior in design, reliablity and price. Being able to afford any traditional vehicle under a 150k we have chosen to picked the Lexus as the clear winner when comparing to other cars in the same price range and even above. I was formally an S class owner and will NEVER go back to Benz after all the problems we had with a 90k dollar vehicle. So my advice to you is to compare wisely, and if I had to pick a second choice it would clearely be the Audi A-8 in the W12 configuration. No the BMW doesnt even come close. Have fun in any purchase.

Best Features

GPS is better than ANY of the german imports. Back seat is usable, and the quality is second to none.

Worst Features

More horsepower, quicker acceleration without stiffening the shocks. Better gas mileage would always be more appreciated. Night vision display like in the LX 470 be available. Air conditioned seats for us southern cali drivers like in the LS 470 would be greatly appreciated. Electric side shades.
