A True Match for BMWs

Vehicle
2001 Lexus IS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Review
The IS 300 gives top value for overall design and assembly quality and the resultant reliability. Engine performance is highly responsive throughout the RPM range, with instant response and smooth delivery. Handling is precise and balanced (neutral with oversteer at the outer edge). Braking is excellent. The car never feels pressured; it delivers a blend of perfectly synchronized responses. Better overall than two 3-series BMWs that I test drove which were simply too hard-edged.
Favorite Features
Superb handling; smooth engine with wide torque band. Perfect blend of performance and refinement.
Suggested Improvements
First, tune the engine for a bit more horsepower by uncorking the exhaust slightly (the torque is fine). Second, revise the traction control to be less sensitive. Third, improve the stereo sound quality.
