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.
Style, comfort level of seats, stereo
and navigation system.
I couldn't think of any improvements
for this car, it has it all.
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?
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.)
Excellent instrumentation- Superb
interior , excellent sound system,I
love that low throaty engine sound at
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
My SC430 is model year 2002...the first year it was
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.
The solid quality convertible top which is as quiet
as a hard top sedan and as leak proof from rain at
The navigation system is very convient to see and
easy to use and learn.

utilize the car speakers with an intergrated
