IS 300

Vehicle

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


Review

I love this car! I had to replace my last BMW 328i and with the reviews of seen of the IS 300, I just had to buy it. I love the handling of this car. Its a great combination of style, performance and luxury! I would not hesitate to buy it again. Sporty RWD and double wishbone suspension makes handling great, nice torquey 3.0L I6 engine makes for perfect balance and smoothness, luxurious interior that comes along with plethora of options and comfort, exterior styling very rich and lively.

Review

I looked long and hard for a car. thought about the acura rsx - was too small. thought about a bmw - i'm sick of bmw's, so i decided on the lexus is. i like it alot. it's a pleasure on the highway. only complaint - it's a bit of a gas guzzler, and the rear seats don't fold down, make storage small. but i'd buy/lease it again if i had to do it over...

The car is everything what I expected but, too many recalls and there is a noise coming from the front suspension that is very annoying will mention the in my 15k service!

Review

Excellent value for the money. Transmission electronics and shifter design need improvement. 5-speed manual should be offered on the SportCross. Cheaper IS200 should be brought here from overseas market.

More Fun for the Dollar

Vehicle

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


Review

Great looks; smooth reving and torquey engine with world class tranny and brakes. Seats are comfortable; Sportcross gives the hatchback appeal and functionality of some of the Euro cars: BMW; Audi et al. Steering is highly responsive and tracks on center; it talks to you; you know where you are in the curves when driving at 8/10ths or better. R&T ran this car thru the cones @ 65mph and .91g on the skidpad:'nuff said about handling. Great car

This is the enthusiast's pick

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


Review

For 2002, Lexus offers a 5-speed manual option to the IS300 model. I jumped at the opportunity to drive one, and I was sold in a heartbeat. The firmer suspension tuning on this model as well as the crisp shifting action of the manual truly make this the enthusiast's choice for a great sport sedan. I opted for the leather/ecsaine interior trim package, which really helps keep you in place while making turns. The seats themselves are top-notch to begin with, even for tall drivers (I'm 6'02"). The acceleration is just as smooth as the braking and cornering. The auto-leveling standard xenon headlamps are a nice touch too.

Sportcross

Review

Just bought a black on black Sportcross and I am really enjoying it. Handles and brakes better than anything else with this much cargo flexibility (bar none). All it needs is a low pressure turbo or supercharger and it would run with an M3.
