2001 Lexus IS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I have liked the IS since it came out and was thrilled to be able to buy one 2 years ago. In two years, I have had no complaints, just a lot of compliments and a lot of fun. I'd rather have this car used for the 20,000 I bought it for than any new car on the road for the same price. I drive my cars pretty hard, and this has been one of my favorites..have had a Prelude, Maxima, and Probe GT, but the IS spanks em all. I do use the E shift alot, makes for a more fun driving experience, especially with the traction control off... it tends to kick in early sometimes, which is fine if I'm not having a little fun with the car. Great luxo-sport car, that acts like and even looks like a coupe.
6 disc changer, heated seats, E shift, and RWD, full size spare, shift knob. I enjoy the compliments at almost every gas stop and oil change.
MUST have ALL season tires if in snowy regions, one touch closing of moonroof, and armrest.
