Lexus Sc300 #029337 — One of the best and most timeless cars ever built. Lexus did a superior job on the design and quality. I must admit the weight does hinder its performance; it's subpar from a standstill, but it really shines when you're already rolling on the freeway (i.e. overtaking another vehicle).

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

Pros: Timeless exterior design, superb build quality, heavily optioned (moonroof, 12 CD, leather, etc.). High modification potential.

Cons: Weight, four-spd slushbox, interior color choice.

Our Sc300 — Our SC300 was purchased as a Christmas gift for my wife. It was used, but in excellent condition. many people draw a connection between the Lexus SC300 and the Toyota Supra. While they're similar in many ways, the SC300 is heavier and is designed for more comfort. The 2JZGE engine is very reliable and even with out a turbocharger provides a lot of power. This car does require 93 octane fuel (or better), and it uses more fuel than it seems it should. There have been a few problems with the car, like needing the ECU replaced, one of the dash needles has died making it hard to tell how much fuel is in the car, and the trunk release solenoid has quit. My only complaint about the car is that it has too many computers and electronic gadgets. This makes it hard to diagnose problems.

Pros: Sleek Styling, Comfortable, powerful, reliable

Cons: 93 octane fuel only, seat leather splits, too many computers

A Luxurious Pimp Car. — It's just beautiful. Steering feels like driving a cloud. Suspension is perfectly tuned. Handling is awesome at high speeds, it just loves taking curvy roads at 60+ mph. Wish it had more power however. Can't compare with a modern sports car in acceleration. Also mine has a 4 speed auto transmission which is a bit sluggish and unresponsive in first and second gear. Overall an awesome value, and just super high quality build. This is a pimp car.

Pros: Beautiful looks,  perfectly tuned suspension for cruising , great value and reliability.

Cons: Sluggish transmission (4 spd auto), mediocre acceleration

Holy Bad Gas Mileage Batman! — Great car, but it sucks the gas. I struggled to get over 20mpg with the thing. That, combined with premium gas only, and a huge tank made fillups expensive as hell. Other than that the only grief that I have is the auto transmission. If it was a 5 speed car, there is a good possibility that I would not have the Prelude now

Pros: Rear wheel drive, buttloads of luxury items

Cons: fuel mileage, auto trans

Buy One Of These — I love this car. It's the perfect mix of elegance, style, speed and PRICE. These cars can be had for a very good price these days and I suggest buying/driving one. The 2JZ-GE inline six in this car is silky smooth. Although not the fastest car on the road today, it is easily one of the most refined and RELIABLE cars sill on the road today.

Pros: TOYOTA RELIABILITY, Tons of passing power, luxury amenities(power everything!), smooth ride

Cons: stereo, trunklid struts, power steering pump can all be a problem, rear wheel drive sucks in the winter

Comfort, Style And Handling — What I like about this car is that it is a true 4 seater, an adult can sit in the back seat easily so for a family of 4 this car can work. I bought it for the stick shift, I enjoy the feeling of going through the gears. I was thinking about modifying this car since it is a popular car to put turbo on but I really did not feel the need to after driving this for a few years.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: One of the most desirable cars to Modify

Cons: Needs a little Love
