Pros

Handsome looks; well-designed interior; loads of standard luxury equipment; pleasing powertrain.


Model Highlights

The 2007 Lexus SC 430 retractable hardtop is powered by a 4.3L DOHC 32-valve V8 with continuously variable valve timing which is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. It produces 288 horsepower and 317 ft-lb of torque while still meeting ULEV II standards.

Known mostly for its unique design, which has aged gracefully since its 2002 redesign, the SC is incredibly well equipped. Aside from the usual items one would expect to see on a $60,000 luxury car, the SC comes with fog lamps, power electrochromic heated mirrors with a memory feature, 18-inch alloy wheels, power heated leather seats with memory, a navigation system, automatic climate control, and very handsome wood trim. The sound system, a Mark Levinson audio system with cassette and six-disc CD changer, is also outstanding. The rear seats work well for small children or for extra cargo during top-down motoring.

Standard safety features on the rear-wheel-drive SC include traction and stability controls, ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist, high-intensity discharge headlamps with washers, a tire pressure monitor, front seat-mounted air bags, and front knee air bags.

With so much being standard, the options list is quite short. A rear spoiler and run-flat tires can be ordered, as can 18-inch "liquid graphite" alloy wheels. A Pebble Beach Special Edition Package includes unique maple interior trim, 18-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, special badging and floor mats.


Model News

The Lexus SC 430 retractable hardtop received new front knee air bags for 2007, as well as optional 18-inch "liquid graphite" alloy wheels. The typical dual windshield wiper setup has been replaced by a "uniblade."


Value Writeup

The 2007 Lexus SC 430 continues to exude luxury and class; its refined good looks still turn heads at the country club, and its smooth 4.3L V8 is as impressive as ever. The list of standard equipment is extensive, and much longer than most of its competitors. Reliability has been extremely high for the SC since its 2002 redesign.

Summary
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2005-2007 Lexus SC, Toyota Corolla, Corolla Matrix, Sequoia, and Pontiac Vibe, and 2005-2006 Toyota Tundra vehicles that were originally sold, or ever registered, in Florida, along the Gulf Coast, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, Saipan and American Samoa. The inflators in the front passenger air bags are susceptible to rupture in the event of a crash necessitating the deployment of the front passenger air bag.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the front passenger's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the passenger seat occupant or other occupants.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger side front air bag, free of charge. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Pontiac Vibe owners may contact GM at 1-800-762-2737. Note: This recall is an expansion of recall 14V-655.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
