    Awesome! Fun To Drive And Is A Real Looker. — Great two seater sports car. It has a huge amount of cargo space in the trunk even with the top down. Fun to drive. Receive a lot of compliments on the look of the vehicle. I have had no maintenance issues.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Rides and handles superbly. Great gas mileage for a V8. Large trunk.

    Cons: Back seat not really big enough for a person to sit in. Stereo system could be better especially when the top is down.

    A Keeper — Not the best looking ride, but handling, performance for a Lexus & comfortable ride enjoyable! Slight wind noise from front windows can be aggravating. Switched out rims & tire pressure monitor now inactive. Owned car since '04 & has been pretty much trouble-free!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: handling, smoothness on the road

    Cons: run flats wear out too fast

    Love It! — I love my 2004 Lexus SC430. I drive this car with the top open all year around. I enjoy the feeling of total freedom when the air touches me while I am driving. Even on the highway, with my windows up I can really enjoy it. When it get a little chilly at night, all I have to do is either turn on my car seater warmer or turn on my heater in the car. I like the fact it is a hard top also since at a touch of button I can either open or close. I feel so pampered by this car as though I am in a spa. This car is perfect for me. I haven't had any problems with this as with any other Lexus I have owned so far. Lexus surely knows how to make an excellent car: So sexy, classy, and great value for the money!

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

    Pros: For the joy of driving around.

    Cons: If I have more than one passenger.

    Green Goddess — I absolutely love this car-- it's quiet, comfortable, and fast. Those looking for a true sports car should look elsewhere: this is a luxury cruiser with a big V8 engine, but optimized for quiet top-down cruising, not a day at the track. The interior is stunning.

    Pros: Beautiful, quiet, comfortable, and fast. Great nav system.

    Cons: Run-Flat tires create a harsh ride-- replace them immediately. No available laser cruise control.

    The Most Fun We Ever Had In A Car — W have had our Lexus SC 430 for over two years and have really enjoyed it. It came with very high quality appointments. It has beautiful exterior lines and fine leather and burl wood interior. It is very comfortable. It also is very powerful and runs smoothly, with excellent handing. Gas mileage could be better.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Car is just a fantastic fun car, great power, luxury and comfort and great in the sun with the top down; a real classic.

    Cons: Car came with run-flat tires. Very hard ride and not great in the snow. We changed them to Continental Extreme Contact.
