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


Review

Purchased used in Dallas. 3 after market chrome wheels out of round. Dealer is reimbursing my cost of repair. Higher fuel usage than my ES 300. Very comfortable interior Smooth, quiet ride. Integrity of this car is perfect.


Best Features

Navigation system. Sound system is like a concert hall. Dealerships are very customer oriented. Models don't change often. Only maintenance, no repairs until over 130,000 mi.


Worst Features

Fuel economy. Taillights don't light up area well in reverse. A voice activated destination system.

Review

I LOVE this car. It's hard to find an exceptional car these days, especially when it comes to quality, but this is truly an exceptional automobile. The exterior is eye catching and timeless with an almost retro feel. I've got the ecru/birdseye maple interior, which doesn't sound that great (I would've normally gone for the darker leather) but in reality is gorgeous and impresses everyone. It looks perfect with the Egyptian Sand exterior. The feel of quality and comfort is everywhere. I tested the Boxter, the Mercedes C series and the Volvo convertible, but they all seemed "plasticky" compared to the SC 430, especially the Mercedes. One drive and I was hooked.


Best Features

The styling. It's wonderful inside and out. The retractable hardtop alone puts this car ahead of any car without one. Great fast and quiet ride, without the driver fatigue that I sometimes felt in my Porshe 911.


Worst Features

Backseat is not really a seat at all, but I like the feeling of having a little space behind me. Plus it gives the car a slightly larger and more attractive look than the smaller BMW Z, etc.

Review

A great car for a long trip with just
the 2 of you. I'm looking forward to
the improvements coming in the next
model change.


Best Features

The ride and comfort. Hard top convertible.


Worst Features

A standard transmission is truly needed to complete this perfect sports car.

Review

We splurged and bought this car. We
absolutely love everything about it.
Yeah it is small but in this case small
is best. It draws compliments
everywhere we go. A dream to drive, fun
to handle with wonderful features. Get
one and you will never want to part
with it.


Best Features

Convertible that looks great up or down.


Worst Features

None.

Review

I have always wanted a retractable
hardtop vehicle with a great stereo
system that was fun to drive. I have
achieved my dream come true.


Best Features

You cannot beat the feeling of freedom when the top is down on a beautiful day and your favorite music is playing on a Mark Levinson System.
