1992 Lexus SC 400 2dr Coupe


Bought w/slightly over 100K mi, now at
204K. Only maint done plugs &
wires, 2 sets brake pads, tires,
alternator. All wear items except
alt. Car runs like new.
Drove friend who owns a new, Pontiac
Grand Prix GTP. He couldn't believe
that my car 10yr old car was more
quiet, comfortable & rattle-free than
his new car. Couldn't believe
handling & acceleration either. This
car is supremely capable @ 80mph+,
which is important when you put on 50K
mi/yr. Bought car for $9K 2-1/2
yrs ago. Aside from my Kawasaki cycle
and my 4wdTurbo Celica it's the
best money I've spent. Highly
recommend this vehicle. As
close to bulletproof as it gets.

Best Features

Low seating position. Very comfortable seats. Tilt/Telescope steering wheel. Solidity. Defeatable trac control, I always turn off. Disabling the Overdrive keeps car in the powerband. Suspension - great balance of comfort & performance. Smooth trans. Dash display @ night.

Worst Features

Steering feel could be tighter, overboosted at highway speeds. Could use larger rims/tires. More rear seat room, not that I care, i don't sit back there. Needs manual transmission option.
