"I have owned my 2005 SC430 for 5 months now. I bought her used with 95K miles on odometer. Even thou She has alot of miles already, I am a true believer in the Lexus reliability and quality. I have had many Lexus vehicles in the past. I found her in excellent condition with white exterior and saddle interior. The engine is still strong (V8) and the Wheels were updated to the 2010 Lexus SC430 18" instead of the ugly covered wheels from early models. The ride is smooth and comfortable. Also, I love the wood trim that flows around the dash and center console. My SC430 is my weekend car. I try to put the top down as often as I get a chance to, whether it is cold or at nights. Many times over, I get compliments whether on the street,at stop signs/lights and gas stations. Only compliant I have is the sliding cover over the radio is stuck and doesn't come down. (But heck, it was already like that when I bought it.) not a deal breaker at all."

absolutely beautiful!

"This car is my dream car. Unfortunately my work schedule, out of country, out of state did not allow me to enjoy it much. I have recently retired and relocated. This car is no longer practical for me. This car has less than 23,000 actual miles. It is pristine."

"No one believes my SC430 is 13 years old and over 200K on the odometer. The paint job is amazing and the car looks pretty new. Only major repair has been both front wheel bearings. Besides the hideous stock wheels and stock run flats which I replaced; this car is like a reliable girl friend. I put two inch wider wheels on the back and it really changes the stance and appearance of the car. Very bulletproof vehicle for those that like understated luxury and reliability over unusable performance."

"I have truly enjoyed this car. Quality is outstanding. It is not a true sports car. It is more luxury than sport. Top up or down it is fun to drive. Styling is unique. I enjoy that I don't see many on the road. There are however two negatives. The trunk is useless with the top down. Don't hit a pot hole, the run flat tires are a disaster."

"It is a luxury car and handles as such, kind of mushy in the corners. But, it will get up and go, and comfortably. Always have the top down, weather permitting. Love this car."
