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


Review

This car hugs the road and fits your body like a glove. It is a lot of fun to drive.


Worst Features

The only problem I have had is with the factory provided cd player. I had to get it replaced because cd's got jammed in it and would not eject.

Review

This is a great car, but I have had a couple problems with it. No matter what the dealer tells you about rear wheel cars, don't believe it. I had a $13,000 front wheel drive car for 7 years. I lived in NJ, PA, IL, and SD (Yes, South Dakota). I lived in rain, snow, sleet, and ice. Out of the 7 years, I never got in an accident and never get stuck. I then traded it for a $33,000 rear wheel Lexus last year. Since I have had this rear wheel drive car, I have fishtailed a dozen times, got stuck in the snow 3 times, and yesterday (the cherry on top of the sundae) slid off the road into a telephone poll.


Best Features

Power, e-shift, xeon lights


Worst Features

Bigger truck, more space in backseat, gear shift should not be made of metal, gets too hot in summer.

Review

This is a great car. Especially when you consider that the direct competition (BMW 330i) is several thousand more for a comparably equipped model. Highly recommended. I purchased the vehicle at JM Lexus in Margate, FL and wouldn't hesitate to buy there again. Their professionalism was second to none.


Best Features

Performance, acceleration, handling, the engine sound (with the windows open). Too many to list.


Worst Features

Convertible and/or coupe.
