Collected my SC 430 today looking forward to getting to know it better.  I have been researching the model over the last few weeks and in General mainly favourable. The major comments being that the people that eventually sell them are really reluctant to do so, therefore I consider myself somewhat lucky to have obtained this one from a former Army colleague.

Hello and welcome to the LOC.

You don’t see many Sc430s on the road ( by coincidence I did see one today in Ashby de la Zouch) and another was one of few cars that actually beat my LS400 off the line at traffic lights!

Hello and a warm welcome to the forum. 

The Lexus SC 430 is a lovely little car. Infact the guy I bought my IS-F from is a Lexus enthusiast and also owns one of these. He took me for a spin in it around Hereford and it was an absolute delight.

Looking forward to seeing the pics 😀

      Hi, I bought my SC430 just over a year ago with 69,000 miles on the clock. I love this cars lazy power and the boon of a truly convertable hardtop.
      Travelling 350 miles+ in a day in this car is not the exhausting experience that you get for example in our Vauhall Zafira which leaves you tired and ragged at the end of such a journey!
      Alas the poor thing is now broken with a brake hydralic punp problem and the main dealer is 30 miles away.....
      Looking for a solution.

      Hi all, had my gold 2004 sc430 now for 3 months. What a great car. I love the fact that it is rarely seen on the roads and is a real head turner especially with the top down. I have suffered from excessive  battery drain which I see is a common problem but will investigate and see if improvements can be made. After a weeks holiday in Wales I returned home to find that one of the front reflectors had fallen off. I have searched eBay, etc to find a replacement but have failed. Can anyone help me out?
      Thanks, Keith

      I was not aware about it, but apparently in US that is already old news (since March 2016):
      https://www.toyota.com/recall/takata
      Toyota has initiated Safety Recalls for certain Toyota and Lexus vehicles equipped with Takata Front Passenger Airbag Inflators and one Toyota model equipped with a Takata Driver's Airbag inflator. The subject vehicles are equipped with Takata airbag inflators which utilize a propellant that may degrade over time, after experiencing long term exposure to environmental moisture and fluctuating high temperatures. In some cases, inflators may also have certain manufacturing defects that enable moisture intrusion and propellant degradation. inflator propellant degradation is accelerated in warmer climates with high absolute humidity. Propellant degradation creates excessive internal pressure when the airbag is deployed and can cause the inflator to rupture. In the event of an inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion material, striking the vehicle occupants and may result in serious injury or death.
      To understand if your vehicle is currently involved in these recalls, please use the convenient Safety Recall VIN Lookup Tool. Follow the instructions for your vehicle as listed. If your vehicle does not currently indicate any open Safety Recalls, please return to this site or your dealer at least every three months to confirm the Safety Recall status for your vehicle.
      Update March 2016
      Toyota and Lexus passenger inflator recalls now also include 2008 model year Corolla/Corolla Matrix and 2008-2010 model year Lexus SC 430 vehicles.
