45 years for another metal roof convert
By R Dunn on


2002 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


I've always wanted a convertible. My
1957 Ford Skyliner was almost
perfect. But the embarassment to an 18
year when the roof refused to close was
tough. I drove my SC430 off the lot
expecting it to happen here. Wrong! It
never failed.The gas mileage, about
18 overall, was better than expected.
I was stopped in all weather by at
least one person a day asking "what is
it? It's the most beautiful car I ever
saw." Someone living in New England
better not drive in snow or ice. Those
wide 18" wheels & 300hp engine has no
traction even on level ground. I
dropped mine off after 24 months &
32,000 miles, happy with the
experience and hoping for spring.

Best Features

Styling is a subjective at best but I have nothing but praise for it. The only car to match the features, (metal roof, 300hp, GPS & full power options) was the Mercedes at just about twice the price. The Mark Levison sound system is great.

Worst Features

Tracion, if possible, otherwise, don't touch a thing.
