2006 Lexus SC 430 4.3L V8 from United Arab Emirates


Reliable grand tourer - Highly recommended!


Normal maintenance; timing belt and some cosmetics.

Plastic shifter surround was scratched, so I replaced it with a brand new part.

RH headlamp kept turning off on its own after three attempts at diagnosis.

Rear left ball joint failing, so the car has a small vibration at 65+ mph speeds.

OEM brake pads not grabby enough, replaced with an EBC set (Redstuff) and the car now stops how it should.

General Comments:

High quality, reliable grand tourer.

My only complaint is the amount of road and wind noise in the car, even after new tires.

Supreme build quality, plenty of real wood and a design that has aged quite gracefully.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
