2001 Lexus IS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

I just bought an 01 with 30900 miles on it. I do wish it had a manual. I hate the lag time from pushing the accelerator to the time your car goes. An armrest would've been nice. But I love the feel and handling of this car. Also once you get going this car has all the power you need right at your foot. This is one of the benefits of having a Supra engine even though it is downtuned from what it was in the Supra. I love how everything you could want is a standard feature. The gauge cluster takes some getting used to, though.

Favorite Features

The quiet ride and handling of this car is amazing.

Suggested Improvements

Bring the 2JZ twin turbo engine to this car and it would outperform any beamer you could find. But most people buying the car don't really want all the power of a Supra. Thats just my 2 cents.
