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


Review

This car makes me feel fabulous every
time I get into it. If you are having
a bad day just put the top down and
drive your cares away. I have also had
a Lexus GS and traded a new LS on this
car. I have been so surprized about the
amount of trunk space when the top is
up. I have traveled for 3 to 4 weeks
and had plenty of room for all my
luggage, dog crate and everything
else. It also holds tons of
groceries. Even with the top down I
have enough room for a weeks groceries
in the trunk. But, the best thing
about the car is the smiles on my face
when I approach the car, and slide into
the seat. Put the top down and the day
turns into sunshine.


Best Features

Style, comfort level of seats, stereo and navigation system.


Worst Features

I couldn't think of any improvements for this car, it has it all.

Review

Smooth as silk with a quiet ride and
great extra features. The sound system
that you can listen to with the top
down and the compartment that you can
hear your passenger talk with top down.


Best Features

The interior and the retractable roof.

Review

I love this car!! Can't go anywheer and
not get noticed. A true joy to drive
and great on long road trips. Very nice
design and very fast! I would recommend
this car to anyone who needs luxury but
has to had performance and looks. This
car is a 12.5 out of 10. I wasn't even
able to test drive it before I bought
it, doesn't that tell you something?


Best Features

Hardtop conv, Navigation, leather seats, handling....


Worst Features

The only thing I can think of is that the drivers seat needs to be able to lean back more. Otherwise a great great car!

Review

This is an excellent vehicle( and the
4th Lexus I have purchased). I also
have a LS 430.
Fun to drive, powerful engine, great
pickup and fast and easy to handle on
the Interstates as well as around
town.The car attracts attention with
its outstanding styling.
The sound system is outstanding and the
GPS system is almost as good as that in
my LS430( unhappily, no live Lexus
link, otherwise just as good.)


Best Features

Excellent instrumentation- Superb interior , excellent sound system,I love that low throaty engine sound at idle.


Worst Features

Seat belts are not easily reached and the retainer straps on the seats are not very effective. I really never use Lexus link ( except to demonstrate it to my friends who are curious)but I think it could be an effective safety measure in the event of car trouble on the highway.

Review

My SC430 is model year 2002...the first year it was
introduced.
I purchased the SC430 as a retirement gift to
myself and drive it every day. It does not sit in the
gararge. I have driven it from Virginia to the Florida
Keys a few times and have taken many other trips.


Best Features

The solid quality convertible top which is as quiet as a hard top sedan and as leak proof from rain at any speed. The navigation system is very convient to see and easy to use and learn.


Worst Features

1. A need for a wireless phone system which would utilize the car speakers with an intergrated microphone. 2. All wheel drive option ... for bad weather. 3. Lexus Link for Emergency Help.
