Not a sports car, a cruiser.
By silver fox on


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


The quality, reliabilty and workmanship
on this car is outstanding, the
interior is beutiful. The engine is
quiet and powerful but it just doesn't
like to rev up. It shifts into a higher
gear to soon when you are accelerating.
The only way to get full acceleration
is to shift manually. The run flat
tires are so firm that you'll know the
location of every manhole cover in
town. We joke that you can feel it when
you cross the white line. It just
doesn't drive like a sports car. More
for highway driving.

Best Features

Overall quality.

Worst Features

GPS is not intuitive. For a car of this price you can't see the trip meter and odometer at the same time. you have to cycle through.
