1998 Lexus SC 400 400 RWDReview

A Future Classic —

I have a '98 SC400 that is in perfect showroom condition, inside and out. Pearl white with all the options. It is a joy to drive and reeks of quality. The design is elegant and timeless. I have a 99 RAV4 for everyday that I also love. I keep the Lexus for longer highway trips and average about 27mpg. I had a 92 SC 400 for ten years in Chicago. Despite traction control and ABS, it would wag its tail on icy roads. I had no mechanical problems with that car and could have kept it longer. I plan to keep my 98 until one of us dies. No tail wagging here in AZ. I don't care for the design of the SC430 and they stopped making the SC400 in 2000. The original window sticker on my car was $62,500, and I could probably get no more than $15,000 now. Hmmm, beautiful 98 Lexus SC400 or new Kia Spectra? No contest. I also believe that one way we can be "green" is not only to buy hybrids, but also to maintain an older car that we use sparingly. It must cost more energy to build a NEW Prius than it ever saves in gas or emissions. Just a thought. If you can find a used SC400 that has been well cared for, buy it and love it. It's a great car.

Kick Asssss By Karthik

Its a V8 - 4 lt Monster. Being a Lexus, its throws all the goodies at you while the engine thumps enough power to fool the speed cams. The Max I have clocked is 183 kmph. But it can go till 280 kmp... Read More

It's Modern Today Because It Was So Far Ahead Of It's Time! By Russ

This is the second SC400 I own, and it's even better than the 1992 model I own. As with my first review, the "One of the best cars ever built" line still applies, maybe even more so! This car set the ... Read More

Excellent Daily Driver, Perfect Highway Car By G.A.

There's very little not to like about an SC400. The rear legroom is very small. I would save the backseat for your friends that owe you money. The car has decent trunk space and gets great mileage for... Read More

Not Too Bad For A Daily Driver Besides The Gas Mileage But It Is A V8 So Its Expected. By Josh

The Lexus sc400 is a very fast, very well handling sports car with plenty of power to back up its sleek look. It is a luxury car so naturally its rather expensive . Over all I love driving it and w... Read More
