A Truly Refined Vehicle by Mike F. from Tempe, AZ on 04/21/2009. Trim: 2004 Lexus SC 430 Convertible, Owned 2 years.
Pros: The powerfully quiet engine, overall fit & finish, and head-turning looks (w/the top down) are what makes this vehicle most attractive. Thank goodness it's rear wheeled drive or the 300 hp would cause an enormus amount of torque-steer! The Mark Levinson sound system has the clarity and acoustic quality of many 'high-end' home systems. Small enough to fit in any parking space or garage, yet large enough to be a, more-than comfortable, highway cruiser!!
Cons: I, personally, think it looks strangely bizarre & space-age with the top up! The run-flat tires have such firm sidewalls, the car tends to bounce on rough & bumpy roads.
Overall review: Lexus must have done something right with this car because neither the interior nor the exterior have had any 'subtle' changes since 2002! If you're looking for a 'sports car' feel (i.e. harsh ride, super low to the ground, noisy engine, difficult to get in-to, etc.)...this is not the car for you! You won't, however, be disappointed with the power, comfort, quality, or envious looks you'll get if you buy this awsome ride!!

Easy Rider by All-In-Arch on 09/30/2008. Trim: 2004 Lexus SC 430 Convertible, Owned 4 years.
Pros: I have owned this vehicle for 5 years now, since it was new. It is so quite with the top down that my wife won't go on long trips with me, unless I turn on the radio (she likes noise). It is comfortable (for two) and is very very smooth.
Cons: Ride is a little on the harsh side over bumpy roads, but not the worst that I have driven by any means.
Overall review: Extremely pleasant car. Nice to drive, smooth and fast. Great in the spring and fall with the top down.

A good sports car with a lot of extras by Curt from Georgia on 04/07/2004. Trim: 2004 Lexus SC 430 Convertible, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Very good on acceleration; Retractable hard top; Stylish interior (eye appealing); Comfortable Front Seats; Excellent visibility of instrument panel (easy to read); Surprisely quiet with the top down; Good sound and Nav Systems.
Cons: Lack of storage space (specifically the trunk-cannot fit a set of golf clubs); Back seats very uncomfortable (good for grand kids and small over night bags); Scheduled maintenance cost high (should be like BMW, Mercedes and Audi in 4 year/50K free maintenance).
Overall review: Not quite a Mercedes SL 500 or Porsche but the for the price a very good sports car.
