Beautiful and practical
Pros: Looks and reputation.I'd buy it again.
Pros: The Mark Levinson stereo is beyond great
Cons: overall qualityThe build quality is terrible on this vehicle, unfit for ANY modern vehicle. Clicks and noises from the dash, driving light comes loose, noise from the front suspension when going over bumps, Creaks from the armrest, poor gas mileage, the vent air director on top of the dash on the passenger side just lifts out etc. Pathetic for the Lexus brand and this vehicle has never been in an accident and has been properly cared for since new.
Long Term Review - SC430
Pros: Bullet-proof reliability
Cons: Seating and performanceWanted a 'sports coupe with some luxury'. It delivered somewhat on the luxury, but 'sport' is nowhere to be found in the SC430. Floaty suspension, numb handling, terrible throttle response, and quite possibly the worst seats offered by a premium make. Rear seat should be removed - really only a package shelf. Anemic engine output for such a heavy car. Overall, a reliable but unfulfilling ride.
