My toy SC430

2003 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


After owning 4 previous LS, SC, and ES
versions of this now legendary mark, I
am pleased to finally have a
convertible available in the lineup. I
believe Lexus hit their mark with a
thoroughly delightful power machine.
The quality is obviously Lexus and the
design is an eye catcher every time it
leaves the driveway. My Indigo pearl
with custom lexus wheels seems to be
the attention getter of the
neighborhood. Power is sufficient but
not over the top, handling is solid but
lacking against the likes of BMW. Far
superior in every way over my previous

Best Features

The styling tends to grow on me. Interior finish is great and very comfortable. Rear seat room is non- existent, however will carry smaller adults or children in a pinch. Fit and finish of the overall car is great. "Stunning" is descriptor I hear frequently.

Worst Features

With the top up, there is a blind area on the right rear quarter. Trunk space is tight, even without the spare. Seat belts tend to catch between the seat & door pillar/door panel on occasion & may result in damaged trim panels. A very well built machine & well worth the price.
