About Lexus SC

A pioneering entry in today's luxury retractable-hardtop segment, the SC 430 enters its ninth year of production by continuing to offer both a sporty character and a comprehensive array of features. Still one of the most evocatively styled vehicles in the entire Lexus portfolio, this V-8-powered, rear-wheel-drive 2+2 boasts the ability to transform itself from coupe to convertible at the push of a button. While the overall genre of high-end open cars has expanded in recent years, true upper-echelon competitors for this distinctive Lexus remain few. Heading the list is the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, with the BMW 335i Convertible, Volvo C70 and Infiniti G37 Convertible offering a more affordable alternative for those willing to accept a six-cylinder engine.

"My only problem was the origianl Bridgestone Potenza run flats; Rode and handled terrible and poor mileage. Replaced them with Michelin Sport Pilots with Antera wheels, 8x18 front and 10x18 rear. Different car, smooth as silk and handles great and the fatter tires on the back looks a lot better. Bought an used donut tire to throw in the back for long trips."

"After having owned a BMW, a Jag, and various other vehicles, one might think I would find the SC 430 average, but far from it. It is the best car I have ever owned. I fell in love with the styling when I first saw it in 2001, and wanted one since then. I could talk all day about all the great features, but if you are really a automobile enthusist, you will want to know the week points. Before I criticize, I must say, I believe this is the best car value on the road today! The weak points. The rims are hideous. I replaced them with aftermarket. The back seats are only good for VERY limited use or small children. The spare? Isn't room for one if you want to use the trunk. The handling is a little soft in high speed cornering. That's it . . . I can't find anything else wrong with the car. Fair gas mileage. Great if you consider the high performance V8. Fast, convenient hardtop up and down. Great interior design and comfort. You won't find an overall better car unless you jump into the $200,000 plus range, and even there I would say it competes well!"

Pros: "Fun to drive. Like a new car for a used price."

Cons: "Needs satellite radio. Had to add a spare tire."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Great style. Looks like a brand new car and people think it is new even though it is 9 years old. Drives and performs like new too. Averaging 24 mpg with 2/3 freeway driving. Our 3d Lexus vehicle. We own two now, the other an RX 350. I wanted a hardtop convertible and it works beautifully"
