Pros

Cute

Cons

Too quiet on Engine

Smart Cute Power Lexus — Good to own. Own for 7 years with no major repair. 4.3L Engine: Powerful but quiet. Topless by 28 Sec, fastest at that year. Silver colour of Lexus. 2+2 seaters sound like 2 pp + 1 golf bag. Lexus is the best brand.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

The lines, the handling, the power and the hardtop convertible.

Cons

The back seats.

I Adore The Car. — This car handles like a dream, and it's the smoothest ride I have ever had. I have a beautiful 2004 545I Bmw with a beautiful ride, but not quite like this. Add the power to it, plus the hard top convertible and it's one sweet car. Forget about the seats in the back. They are good only for packages, but if you are looking for a sharp hot car, this won't disappoint.

Pros

Quietest convertible on the road; Smooth, Quiet, Powerful! Great for road trips to put the top down and see the scenery!

Cons

Tiny back seat, so tough to fit anyone back there unless they are small!

Great Reliable Car, Quietest Convertible On The Road, Wonderful Value For What You Get! — It's hard not to rave about this car! It is awesome…with the hard top convertible it is very quiet on the road, it drives smoothly and is extremely comfortable! Because it is a Lexus, it is incredibly reliable and mechanically sound. We have not had one problem with this car!

Pros

Unique paint job and 20 inch rims made it stand out even amongst the other SC430s.   Dependable over the five years we had the car.  No major service was ever needed other than the belt change.

Cons

Small  back seat.  Previous owner left many items untended which we ended up getting current.   Radio speakers, and 100k belt change were most expensive items.

Unique — Liked the looks with the pearl white paint over indigo blue. Driving it you always got thumbs up. Top and actually all the mechanical, engine and transmission worked very well with no problems. Gas mileage average was around 24 with city and highway combined.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Nice... But.... Yawn.... By byannalfo
