2006 Lexus SC 430 Review Ratings
2006 Lexus SC 430 Base Review
Fun to drive, luxurious, comfortable attention getter!
Gas mileage, trunk space, rear seat is practically useless.
Worth The Price — This has to be one of the best cars ever!!! How many cars get attention everywhere you go and how many are almost 7 years old. Absolutely a fun car to drive, well built, solid and only option available was color, everything else comes standard including AM/FM 6 disk CD changer and cassette premium stereo, Bluetooth phone connectivity, leather seats and trim, real wood accents, navigation, memory seats and side mirrors, lighted door sills, adaptive headlamps and one button roof operation. On top of that, it is comfortable on long drives and the look and feel of luxury is top notch, but this is more luxury cruiser than a performance sports car although the 8 cylinder engine gets you past the speed limit uneventfully if you are not paying attention!
Primary Use: Commuting to work
2006 Lexus SC 430 Base Review
This car handles like a dream. The ride is like a big luxury car and interior noise is minimal. The instruments are easy to read. Because the car is made by Toyota, the need for maintenance in minimal.
The back seats are not usable unless you are under 3 ft tall. If you want a sports car like ride and handling, this is not the car for you. Navigation system takes an electronics degree to operate.
2006 Lexus Sc 430 — If you want a world class sports car that rides like a large luxury car this is the one for you. The interior is spacious for two people and very well appointed. The leather and burled wood accents and excellent. The car is powerful (V8) and cruises effortlessly at turnpike speeds.
Primary Use: Family transportation

Acceleration is good but bad for the sports car: 0-60 in 6.1 seconds. braking and handling is okay. Good think about this car is that it is convertible, and has quite sexy and nice apearance. Build qu... Read More

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 conv... Read More
