2004 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The SC430 combines the quiet refined
class of the "usual" Lexus product,
when the top is up, with a fabulous
open air experience, complete with
subtly rumbling exhaust pipes and a
totally cool interior. The total
package is a great value..especially
when compared with the "other" hardtop
convertibles on the market.

Try one....you'll be convinced!!


Best Features

The hardtop convertible, naturally. When the top is up, it rides and sounds like a Lexus...quiet and refined. One button pushed...and its a different car!!


Worst Features

The rear seatbelts tend to develop a harmonic flapping when the car is driven with the top down at 65 mph +. Lexus needs to figure out a way to fix this as the flapping belt will eventually stress the grommet in the leather...it happened on mine! Get to work you engineers!!!

2004 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This car is definitely fun....Have a
winter vehicle as when I asked what
kind of snow tires the salesman just
laughed. It's a real head turner as I
find everyone staring.


Best Features

The interior is beautiful. The hard top mechanism is something else. The stereo is the best I've ever heard.


Worst Features

Cupholders are lousy. The front clearance for the spoiler is too low. If you go over any bump I'm afraid the spoiler will scrape. I have to leave my garage ever so slowly or I scrape. The bottom is painted. It should have some sort of black plastic guard as my Saab Turbo had.

Review

Can not find anything that is not well
beyond my expectations. This vehicle is
a drivers dream. This vehicle replaces
a SL500.


Best Features

It is a sports coupe and in 25 seconds it is a head turning convertable.


Worst Features

Have not been able to find anything to suggest.

Review

This is as close to the perfect car as
I have ever driven. The driver and
passenger are left to want for nothing -
- all accessories are provided.
Comfort, luxury, excellent ride and
power are provided in large measures


Best Features

The car is so well integrated into a near perfect drivign experience that it really isn't possible to single out any one feature that is superior -- they all are. If forced to pick one, the convertible top is a joy to use and completes the sleek design to perfection.


Worst Features

None
