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

Review

Ended up leasing the IS and have had it 3 years and 33000 miles. Still on original tires and brakes. I have had it up to 148 MPH. Exterior and interior are stylish, the instrument cluster makes the interior. The low profiles cause the car to pull to the right every now and then. When stepping on the gas it will sometimes hesitate, has less low end power than expected. Once you hit about 110mph it kicks into O\D, simply incredible at high speeds. Handles beutifully, will pull 90 deg turns at 30+ mph with little back end swing around. Nice car, but planning on stepping up to the bmw 540i or a gs400.

Best Features

instrument cluster, high top end speed, smooth as silk at hi speeds, very responsive

Worst Features

cup holders suck, low end could be peppier with no lag, car pulls to the right and I know it's not cause the tires are low profile like the dealer said, some interior components are plastic and subject to coming off.
