1993 Lexus SC 300 Overview

This was the second model year of the SC 300, the new Lexus luxury sports coupe. Little was changed for 1993, as passenger-side airbags and an automatic headlamp system were the only additions. The SC embodied the Japanese auto manufacturer's effort to build LS luxury into a road-hugging sports car, and it was starting to turn heads among BMW B3 and Mercedes SL shoppers.

The SC 300 had a rather powerful straight-six engine, with 225 horses that pulled the 3494 pound coupe from 0 to 60 in just under seven seconds. Although the SC 300 had a compact construction, even taller drivers found it plenty spacious. The 2+2 body contained an interior which could seat four adults, but it was not a backseat for long trips. Many drivers comment that the 5-speed manual version offers the most authentic grand touring experience.

These older SC 300s testify to the reliability of Lexus. Today, many drivers report that their SCs (some bought as certified pre-owned) are still running strong as they reach 100, 150, 200k milestones. Common parts replacements and problems are head gaskets and seals. Some mention replacing the starter. Drivers who have kept up on the standard maintenance schedule (60 and 90k are significant) rarely report any significant problems.
