Thinking of buying 93 lexus sc400 w/ 215,000 miles.


Asked by craba23 Sep 23, 2008 at 08:46 PM about the 1993 Lexus SC 400

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

How long do these cars normally last?  Seller assures that it was garage kept & oil changes/maintenance performed regularly.  Should we take a chance?  215,000 miles sounds like a lot to me!

i have had two sc400's so far and they are one of the better built cars out there. the 1uz-fe (sc400 engine) has had people well into the 400k miles so far easily as long as it is maintained. go to if you need any more help deciding there is tons of information on that site that can help you.
