Pros: "A blast to drive - like a rocket sled."

Cons: "It is a 2-seater. So what?"

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

"I've owned my SC400 since its delivery new in June 1995, with "champagne-beige metallic paint" and a beige interior. In 20 years, I have had virtually no mechanical problems with this car and it looks and drives like brand new. Very quiet with excellent handling and fast acceleration. Everything is original including mufflers, cat converter, hoses, and even the headlights. It's always a joy to see it and to drive it. While I've carried three adult passengers, it's really a 2-seater. My only complaints are: * With my height (6'4"), my right knee rubs against the hand brake. That can get painful after a few hours, so I use a cushion. * Because it is a low vehicle, getting in and out is a little like doing the limbo. * The only failures: both external power rear-view mirrors have stopped working. May be a blown fuse, haven't been able to find it yet. Could cost $1000 to fix with OEM mirrors. Power antenna replaced about 10 years ago. No problems with the engine and drive train. I am happy to own and drive this fantastic vehicle. It could run for another 10 years, at least. As I said in the title, it's the best car I've ever owned."

Great car in great condition.

"The SC or Toyota Soarer are one of Toyota's greatest looking cars, and since the platform is shared withe the Supra, performance parts are readily available. it is a smooth, comfortable car, but it lacks any charisma that most car enthusiasts look for."

Pros: "Beautiful Sporty Car extremely well built"

Cons: "needs struts, front windshield, stero & CD player"

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

"My car is a 1992 SC400 Coupe with the original Premium Package. I purchased her in 1995 & she's been an absolute dream from day one! She's a strong, reliable car. She needs some work today, all struts need replacing, heat & air panel control options aren't visible, the heat & air do work, Nakamichi system no longer works, CD no longer works, windshied is cracked, window tint needs replacing, drivers door interior panel needs replacing, passenger interior door handle clip needs replacing, hood & front bumper need touch-up paint, drivers seat & upper rear seat leather around speakers has sun damage & wear & tear. Oil changes & tune-ups have been done regularly. With some maintenance this car is a owners dream to own & operate. She gets around 20/21 MPG. The LEXUS automobile is rated at 500,000 miles with regular maintenance. After my first year of owning my Lexus I felt safe driving it, comfortable in my daily driving & on long trips. This vehicle due to it's superb workmanship makes you feel confident & secure in every facet of owning the car!"
