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

Review

I bought the IS used four months ago and must say I am completely satisfied. I moved up from a Miata and feared I might be sacrificing some of the superior hadling of the roadster in exchange for some additional interior/cargo space. I was wrong! The IS 300 handles wonderfully with the 17" wheels. The torque of the inline 6 is unbelievable. Dealer service has been excellent. The downside to the 2001, is the lack of a front armrest and no folding backseat.

Best Features

Smooth, quiet, torquey I-6. Luxurious interior, nice factory stereo, and comfortable seats. Great handling and styling.

Worst Features

The armrest issue has been adressed (buy an '02 if you aren't up to retrofitting one). Fuel economy is poor especially in city driving.
