1993 Lexus SC 400 4.0 8 cylinder from North America
Unbelievable used car steal. Get em before people figure it out
Tranny oil changed to eliminate annoying "shuddering"
Replaced 4 tires 1 which was defective causing a "wobbly" tire noise. Thougt it was the bearings, but mechanic confirmed it was not. BF goodriches caused the noise. Michelin is super quiet.
Car IS NOT blazing off the line. Get that straight. Car IS super highway cruiser EASILY commanding the road. Cabin is relatively quiet and the seats are comfortable for big dudes like me (6'2 220 lbs). Rear seats are for the smallest kids, but I have been able to squeeze two adults in a bind. Nice tight steering and not "floaty" at all. Still looks great and still drives great. What a steal for the money. It was this or a used Hyundai. LOL.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

16 month update. Since my original post I have amassed an additional 23k miles. Things that have gone wrong. Door handle didn't work do to plastic clip failing. Bought the part at Toyo dealer for $1.75 USD. 15 minutes to remove door panel, replace clip put panel back on. That's it. Oil changes wiper blades aside, car has needed nothing. Knock on wood. Still runs like a top. Absolutely love this car.
Not blazing off the line? It goes 0-60 just as fast as a GTP. There is only one sports luxury car in the early 90s that was quicker and that was the AWD Stealth/3000GT TT. The Subaru SVX, 300zx and the like couldn't keep up and it burns all the other rice with no problem. Maybe you have a brand new WRX STi that does 4.7 and that's why you don't think it's fast :p.
