Lexus Sc300: Great Classic Design - Long Term Quality In Design And Workmanship — Smooth, sleek, clean classic lines molded around a structually solid frame and a strong reliable engine makes this one car that can stand the test of time. The leather interior in this 17 year old car remains soft and supple throughout (unlike lesser cars that experience cracks). The dashboard remains unblemished from the heat of the sun - only a small crack on the vent louvre - none on the dashboard or anywhere else on the side panels. After 180,000 miles, the following have been repaired or replaced: 1) Timing chain 2) Power steering line (the expensive one!) 3) air conditioner compressor 4) Seals & gasket replaced. This is a "keeper" car that needs no pampering. The more you drive it, the cheaper it cost to own it.

Great Car, Kinda Heavy, Would Accellerate Better With The V8 Model (sc400 Or Sc430) — even tho its a 17 year old car, it still handles like a dream. good acceleration, engine is quiet, one good coat of paint and it'll look brand new. its got decent gas mileage, kind of wish it had a turbo or at least a V8

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Perfect Enthusiasts Car. — An excellent rear drive sports coupe that is reliable, affordable, safe, and fun to drive, with good modification options, anything that fits a 93-98 supra N/A will fit this car! Especially fun with the 5speed version, more fun with Turbo!

Cons

The only setback of the SC 300 is the hard to find parts and the consistence in the "wearing out" of the drivers seat and interior door drivers door panel.

The Sc 300 Has A Body Style That Can Transcend Time And Still Come Out Looking Classy. — The designers of the SC300 had vision. There is nothing spur of the moment about it. Its sleek body style, comfortable interior and performance will make it a favorite for collectors for another 10 years.

The Drive — Spectacular driving car, need to figure out if I want to put a little money into it, to keep it going. It has around 188k miles to it.

Love This Car. 1st Car That I'll Have Forever. — This car is such a fun and luxurious car, I feel spoiled to have it as my first car. Could live without putting premium in it all the time but the performance makes it well worth the extra cost. Lexus did it right with this one. It is very well build and performs great while looking great as well.
