Vehicle

2002 Lexus IS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I love this car, handling is super,
and it very fun to drive and always
great to look at. However, even family
cars like Altima and Accord already
have 240hp, Lexus should give some
more horsepower to the next generation
IS(around 260-280 would be good
enough)...

Performance aside, this car is very
reliable, I had this car for more than
two years and no find problem at all..


Best Features

Both Exterior and Interior, handling, reliability, good price


Worst Features

more horsepower is needed, interior material could use some improvement (although I have no complains about it)

Review

I like it alot. ZERO problem with the
car so far. Only a light bulb is
replaced. Other than that, regular 5k
maintenance is all I did. Great
handling, great acceleration, very
comfortable interior. Quiet for a
sport car. Overall, a better car than
Acura CL-S, 350Z, Audi A4 and C240.
No regret buying the IS-300.


Best Features

Great dealership service. Extremely reliable car. Well built overall. Maintain good resale value. Cool to look at. The air-cond is so very cold..... (a good thing when you live in San Diego like I do)


Worst Features

- More horsepowers - Better fuel economy -

Vehicle

2002 Lexus IS 300 SportCross 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Our SportCross is our 1st Lexus
and most definately will not be our
last! The transmission shifts like silk
and the handling is superb and sharp.
The other so-called SportCross owners
above are most assurredly bogus and
probably will never experience Lexus
quality and dependability. We love
Our Lexus IS300 SportCross!
P.S For the owner above who wanted to
disable their vehicle skid control just
push the TSC button on the dash.


Best Features

Love the E-shift, Auto-dimming mirrors, Hatch, Awesome Nakamichi 9 speaker sound system with 6 in dash CD player and on and on and on!!!


Worst Features

Interior hatch release and one on the remote as well. Memory for driver and passenger seats.

Review

Great car, I traded in my 2000 Corvette
for this little machine. In outhandles
the vette, less acceleration but more
fun to drive, heads turn just as much
as in the vette
