8 months with IS 300 (and going...)
By max on
2001 Lexus IS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
First impression from this sleek sports sedan is something I would never get from any other car. Great exterior design, flashy speedometer/tachometer, sporty shift nob and pedals help you cope with the size of available space. All options suit well with the outfit, just pick whatever suit you best. Service is excellent, acceptable maintenance cost, not as bad as BMW, but not as good as Toyota. Last time I went by the dealer, 2002 special edition looks so good I want to beat myself for not waiting for it. Bottomline: Best car for the price, find the right dealer that will give you services. Grab the key, and let's have some fun. -^_^-
Eye candy for a ride, gets attention everytime I ride with it. After 8 months flew by, I still love every bit of it. Driving performance is almost flawless, luxury is optional. Seat heater, Homelink Universal Transceiver and "snow" driving mode have become the essential in Winter.
Interior improvement to gain cabin space and passengers' comfort. Suspension needs some improvement to gain some handling performance. Clustered console has decreased the chance of having decided for flashy LSD screen add-on. Better sound system, maybe?
