Great Car — The best review for the 1997 lexus sc 300 is its reliability, style, quality, performance, cargo capacity, gas mileage, comfortable back seating, realistically seats 4 adults, plenty of head room and leg room for tall driver. Car handles great around turns and straight aways.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: none

Cons: performance

97 Sc300 — love the car although the stock performace isnt anything to brag about but i love the platform and the possibilities. the look is timeless toyota was way ahead of there time when they released this car in 92. i use this car as my daily driver and have had no issues at all.

Pros: the look and the platform!

Cons: its a heavy beast

Excellent Car, Wouldn't Trade It For Anything, Accept A Toyota Supra. — I've wanted one ever since I was little. I've always loved the design of the car, it's a timeless classic. Great, reliable car to use as a performance project. If I could I would own more of them. I may try to get one more at least.

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

Pros: Fun

Cons: Money pit

What Year Is Your Car? 1997. What! No Way It Looks Like 2000s — classic, one of the best styling, easy to give it go, low maintenance, fun to drive, gets plenty of attention, inspiration, and thumps up from the car gurus who understands the history of the great imports of the 90s, ie Supra, Skyline R34, 300zx, 3000gt, rx7, Silvia (240sx) and of course SC!

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

Pros: Elegant design, subtle, great acceleration, good brakes, strong motor (2JZ), pretty smooth and comfortable stock, great platform and lots of options for upgrades if you want to go faster, handle better, and make it your own. The 1997 5spd is awesome and rare only 120 produced.

Cons: heavy, base motor is strong, but to get the most out of it you will need to throw on a turbo or swap motor.
