Not What I Thought

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


I must be an idiot !! My girl convinced me to buy this car. I was perfectly content with my Gorgeous 50th anniversarry Corvette. From the day I bought this so called "certified" car I have had nothing but problems. Thank god it's still under warranty !! Then my dad said something very true...the SC430 is nothing more that a jazzed up Toyota!! Remember that when you buy this overpriced wanna be sports car. You would expect that they put some thought into the suspension. My Ford F-150 rides smoother than this. Today I brought it in yet again because it keeps eating batteries. Three visits and they can't figure out what the problem is - they are talking about replacing the harness now.

Best Features

The retractable hard top is cool and the radio is good. But that's about it !

Worst Features

Where to start..rims stink..put a real suspension on this car !! - study a real sports car like the Vette or Porsche! I went across the street to the Chevy dealer while my SC430 was being worked on. Drove the new Vette...tell you what people I'm going back to a real car..look to see this car 4 sale!
