18 months/15,000 miles; NO rattles or
squeaks. Only problem: Driver's side
door pin popped out a couple of
times...the dealer replaced the hinge.
No more trouble.
The back seat is cramped, but since I
rarely have passengers, it isn't an
issue for me. I was looking for
reliability and driving fun...within my
budget. I found it. Even though the
new car smell is gone, I am still
taking the long way wherever I go. I
just hate to stop driving it. It is a
thirsty little beast, but it's hard to
muster up any concern about it. The
mileage for stop and go driving has
been 19.6 miles a gallon.
Nothing prettier than my fresh-washed,
blue IS300...she still turns heads.
Styling, rear wheel drive handling...I
like owning and driving it. Full size
spare tire. In-dash 6-CD changer. Lexus
customer service is great!
Needs memory seats & moisture-sensing
wipers. Dash shelf useless. Fixed
w/Japanese Domestic Market dash cover
compartment for Toyota Altezza. Trunk
small; only been annoyed once.
Paint seems soft; expect lots of chips
on the front, esp. if lots of hwy
driving. Suggest bra.
