1993 Lexus SC 400 Coupe 2dr Coupe


Review

Can't say exactly: Ya have to love what ya see but ya need to go with what ya know...I have only owned this car since 5/14/18. I'm 76 years old and have been into cars all my life. If anything is self evident with this car, it's obvious that it is very well built. There was allot of time and effort put into the design. The door hinges on 2 dr cars were always to "wimpy" for the length and weight of the doors. The hinges on the Lexus SC 400 look as though the belong on a bank vault...The body seams/gaps fit very well. The car is a 1993 vintage with 112,700 miles on it and is like new inside and out. The paint on the car reminds me of the paint we used on aircraft in that it is more like an epoxy bond. The engine is extremely responsive and the brakes work well. The car corners nice and flat without riding like an Army "Duce and a Half" truck.

Review

Great car, pick a gently used for a great choice. I have driven other cars with spice - my sc400 has over a 10 year period been - hands down - the best car that i have ever owned. In 1999 i purchase my certified car for $25,000 when it had ~35,000 miles on it - it now has 125,000 miles on it. The few repairs were: antenna motor, driver's door window motor, starter, alternator, power steering pump and then brakes, tires, & regular tune-up stuff - since i owned the car my average service costs to keep the car in very good running condition has been $81.00 per month - a blend of dealer work (starter / 60K service) and private mechanic. 17 years old and it still kicks. Timeless lines.


Best Features

The shape,dash,low to ground, quite cabin & it is very comfortable. Struts lasted for ever, turns great, smooth but not too soft. Long drives - when you get out of the car you are NOT beat up. Decent highway mileage ~ 21MPG and decent trunk size, sound system. Most of all the reliability.


Worst Features

Tach & Speedo needle lamps fail. Starter -is costly to replace. Not a good car in snow and ice, the weight is over the front wheels & this is a rear wheel drive car - keep good tires and limit driving on bad days.

Review

Bought it in 12/2004 with 56,000 miles on it. I have enjoyed it tremendously. Great road car, holds the road and provides 18-22 MPG. Back seat is a little tight for adults and trunk could be bigger. Have replaced water pump, oil pump and other regular maintenance items. Leather drivers seat is beginning to show wear but to be expected. Gets up and goes when you mash the accelerator. 12 CD player has been trouble - replaced with Lexus 6 CD player. Low to the ground so clearance is concern. Front spoiler below bumper is easy to get scrapped and dented. A/C and heater are great. All in all; I have enjoyed driving and owning the SC400.


Best Features

Performance, quickness, sleek lines and look, dash controls and alignment, big V-8 with power


Worst Features

larger back seat, easier entry and exit of back seat, larger trunk

Review

I have owned this vehicle for a little over a year now and it truly is the BEST car I have ever owned! I drive it every day with NO PROBLEMS whatsoever! I just do my regular maintenence: oil change, oil filter, etc. and it runs like it's brand new. It has 175,000 miles on it. AMAZING VEHICLE and I will never sell this car ever.


Best Features

Arriving in style, timeless design (13 years old and people still ask me if it's a 2006 model), super quiet interior, comfortable ride, amazing gas mileage for a V8! (400 to a tank!)


Worst Features

NO IMPROVEMENTS WHATSOEVER!

Review

I bought my SC 400 last summer and this has been my best purchase. The sleek design, powerful and very quiet V8 provides plenty of power and decent gas mileage.


Best Features

Nakamichi Sound, TRAC Control, and heated seats.


Worst Features

Rear seats need more legroom for adults, children can squeeze back there but not for long trips.
