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


Bought the car 1 year ago @ 12 years of age with 100K and loving. All original equipment is still functioning perfectly and car is running strong, with the exception of 3 busted speakers that I replaced.

Best Features

As long as you are okay with purchasing a grand tourer instead of a sports car , you'll love it too. Smooth, quite, quick, bullet proof reliability and averaging about +21 mpg in mostly spirited highway driving. Vehicle Stability Control is pretty amazing, put the pedal down in a turn and the over-steer will become evident, luckily you'll hear a couple beeps followed by some ABS clicks and car will correct itself perfectly every time. Easy to do preventative maintenance on.

Worst Features

Replacing the runflats is a must, and OEM wheels while you're at it. Original speakers are cheap and stereo has custom ohm rating, making non-OEM options troublesome to find. Suspension is way too soft for a "sports car".
