1996 Lexus SC 400 2dr Coupe


The Lexus SC 400 is built like a tank and was made to last. I bought my beauty 12 years after it was assembled, but it had only 70,000 miles on it. The car is heavy duty, and weights a ton, but this creates an amazingly smooth ride. The car is not street light to street light quick, but has great power on the freeway. Perhaps I do not have the lead foot of some others, but my 12 year old car gets very respectable mileage. I have gotten as much as 24 miles per gallon on an entire tank, and rarely get under 20 miles per gallon - very respectable for a V8 with 260 HP.

Best Features

The sound of the car as you fire it up is a throaty growl and it never fails to put a smile on my face. The sound system is wonderful, and the ride is smooth and quiet.

Worst Features

The gearing is very conservative as most of the power seems to be on the upper end.
