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