Bought the SC3000 new and have driven
it over 123,000 since purchase in
1996. The car is a marvel; I have
never had to replace anything on the
car but a strut which started leak at
123,000 miles. Still running on
original clutch and brake pads. It is
simply impossible to built a better
looking or more reliable vehicle.
My car has over 110,000 miles, and I
still smile every time I see it. Looks
great, interior is very sharp, and it
runs smooth and is well built. I had a
4-Runner previously, and based upon
these 2 experiences will stick with
Every time I look at my SC300 I think
to myself: What a beautiful machine.
Exterior and interior look fantastic.
I only paid $15,000 in 12/2002 for a
SC300 with 75K miles having a $50,000+
sticker price. Looks and drives like
I bought the '96 SC 300 in August
of '99 as a certified pre-owned car
from the dealership. I saved a bundle
from what I would pay for a brand new
SC, but paid a little more than what I
would have off the street from an
individual. Still, as a package, it is
the best car value I have ever had. I
will not likely buy any other car
again. Its performance, handling,
reliability, comfort and value are
second to none. I have had friends and
co-workers who have owned BMWs and
Mercedes, and they complained often of
problems with reliability and value.
Not with my Lexus certified pre-owned.
What a car!!
