"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."
"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."
