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


Review

I love it lexus delivers. It's my toy
to get away from the "real world" and
have a symphony on the road! It's the
volkswagen I always wanted on
steroids! An indulgence well worth it
20 yrs marriage 20 years working and
20 minutes and the dealership had me
out of there!!!!!


Best Features

The stereo,comfort and the drop top! Why else would you pay $$$$ for a convertible ...it's like no other!


Worst Features

make it a 2 seater and give us more trunk space real cup holders and throw in a car cover as a perk!

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


Review

Plenty of room for 2 passengers. Very
limited luggage space. Firmest ride of
any vehicle I've ever owned.
Comfortable driver seat. Not as quiet
or as smooth as my Lexus LS 430.
Easier entrance than most sports cars.
"Run flat" tires over $300 each run
about 1500 miles. No spare tire.


Best Features

Exterior styling. Standard GPS. Push- button metal top convertible.


Worst Features

Add side mirrors that retract when engine turned off. Add hands-free cell phone. Add storage compartment for sun glasses. Use conventional tires and spare tire. Replace useless rear seats with storage space.

Review

I've had this car for about 2.5 years
now, and I still love it. The car has
an UNBELIEVABLE interior and is soooo
comftorable (unless ur sitting in
the "back seats"). This car drives
very well, but you can feel the bumps
and potholes. Very fast car and
extremely fun to drive. "Back seats"
are only useful to put your bags or
umbrellas. The convertible hardtop
aspect is great, especially for me
living in New York weather. Once I
had a flat tire, and went to the gas
station to get it changed, and they
couldnt find the spare tire, so we
went home and we realized that the
tires were RUN FLAT- it was amazing;
you could go up to 65 mph with a flat
tire.


Best Features

Wood interior, front passenger legroom, sound system, navigation system, convertible hardtop, sleek and cool look- lots of stares, run flat tires, nice standard rims, you pay $60,000 for a car and your getting all the options (unlike ALL mercedes supercars, like the SL65 has options!)


Worst Features

Either take out the backseats or make them bigger. Trunk was only big when the top was up-make it bigger. Fix the wheels so that the ride isnt so bumpy.

Review

I have owned 2 SC's. I have loved them
both. The new, retractable hard top
gives me the best of both worlds. There
is little road noise with the top up.
The stereo is high quality. The car is
the ultimate if you want a convertable.
I didn't look for a car with big back
seats and a huge trunk. It fits me
perfectly, as all the instruments are
within reach. Wow. What a ride!
Everyone who drives it, loves it!


Best Features

The car drives well in wet weather. Acceleration is immediate. The interior is plush.Safety features are abundant. The car is so much fun to drive! The headlights automatically acclimate to the road level in front of you. You can always see the road.


Worst Features

There is a blind spot with the car. The side mirrors need to be redesigned in order to help with this problem. A built in front and rear radar detector needs to be offered as an option. This car will move.
