Twice the coupe of a MB SL500 at half the price

by RJ from Chicago on Fri Feb 01 2008

Yes, this car is as fast and more nimble than the heavy footed SL500. And at half the price someone would need to explain what the other $50K is for. Similar options, power everything, etc, etc. yeah, the SL is a convertibel, but I could by a second car that is a convertible, maybe a HondaS2000 and still have change left over. Now factor in the fact that Lexus is the best built car on the planet, yes, the planet. You can drive this car for 300K miles and more. There is a reason that Motor Trend named the SC400 Car of the Year when it arrived in 1992. MT describes the engine as the "smoothest V8 on the planet" Not bashing MB here, but twice the price!! The SL is a nice machine and has some serious pedigree not to mention some "panache" but twice the price....... and the SC will leave the SL in the dust on the track. This is a beautiful car without being "gaudy", it is more "sleek" without the "sexy"...... BEST CAR EVER, for the money...... period.........

quiet comfy beautiful and cozy

by Highway express from Inverness FL on Wed Nov 10 2010

Having owned, Preludes, MX-6, MX-5, Prius, Transam, STS, F-150 and a suburban. I can say this is the best car I have owned. It's very quiet, smooth, the V8 power comes on strong and clean, not jerky. The 5 speed auto is silky smooth. This is a heavy car, not a Miata and doen't handle like a sports car, it's home is on the highway going 80mph for hours and hours.

The best car Lexus ever built!

by KCBaba from on Mon Jul 30 2012

Our family has owned this car since 1992. Still going strong. This car has put on about 320,000 miles by now and never needed any major repair or part replacement. The only drawback is that it's not at all an ideal car to drive in snowy/icy condition. But in summer, this one is the best on the road. you gotta watch the speed or a speeding ticket is always waiting for you. Amazing car and would buy it again in an instant if lexus ever made this one again!!! ABSOLUTELY in love with it
