They dont make them the way they used to

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


Lexus cut corners with The switches and
controls. They appear to be straight
out of a toyota corolla. I think the
steering wheel is too. Ride is harsh on
the run flats. They last for about 5000
miles and then start rumbling really
bad. Paid $1600 for new tires in less
then one year of casual driving. Dealer
says this is normal. The seat belt
position is to low for taller drivers.
The 1991 LS 400 we bought new was a
much better car. Clearly, corners were
cut on this one. I will be getting rid
of this car ASAP. Anyone want to buy a
Nieman Marcus Silver Belle Edition
SC430 with new tires?

Best Features

seats are comfortable. Sufficient Power. Hard Top Conv. keeps the water out. Engine is very quiet.

Worst Features

More luxary appointments. Stop taking parts out of the Toyota parts bin. More room for a conventional spare so the run flats can be avoided. So many people own a Lexus that dealer service is suffering somewhat.
