The best car I've ever owned
By lucky boy on


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


This is a great car, tight, reliable,
posh, thoughtfully executed.
Everything about it suggests quality--
the finish, looks, touch of the
controls. I owned the previous model
(SC 400) which was also very sexy, but
harder to control--road feel,
handling, and control of this car are
greatly improved. Run flat tires
occasionally transmit too much of
uneven roads to driver. I look forward
to enjoying this car for years to come.

Best Features

Styling and retractable top. The top is very cool. Stereo is almost as good as my audiophile home system. Everyone looks at the car with admiration but not envy.

Worst Features

relocate trunk and gas cap releases-- they are hard to find and tell apart; integrate audio controls into steering wheel, as does BMW, articulate upperhalf of seatback to tilt forward and back.
