1995 Lexus SC 400

The 1995 SC 400 featured several retouches to the exterior, including a new grille, headlamps, and alloy wheels.  Less visible structural changes were also included to adhere to new side-impact regulations.  Today, many drivers are still behind the wheel of their eleven or twelve-year-old SCs, and who have kept a strict maintenance schedule are reporting minimal problems.

The SC 400 housed a 250 horsepower 4.0 Liter V-8, which took the coupe from 0 to 60 in in 6.6 seconds.  Torque was rated at 260 lb-ft at 4400 rpms.  The SC was acclaimed for its smooth and supple ride, with a suspension just left firm enough to provide a bit of a grand touring feel.  Steering was very responsive and the transmission effortlessly worked through gear changes.  The cabin provided a sporty feel with its wrap around design, and driver was set very close to the road.  The well-appointed interior featured many items found in the LS, like a premium sound system, one-touch power features, and surprisingly comfortable seats for a sports coupe.

Along with its functional and practical ergonomics, the SC allowed in very little wind noise.  Road noise was more substantial, but not intrusive.  Some of the more frequent problems that drivers experienced were related to headlights (taking on water), worn timing belts, and a finicky transmission.
