2002 Lexus IS 300 SportCross 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I bought this car new and the only costs besides normal maintenance was a recent change of the oxygen sensor, 299.00. During warranty period I have had problems with front suspension creaking. Dealer could not correct it so I have learned to live with it.
quality of interior. style
wearing out of front tires prematurely and creaking front end.
My wife and I bought this car just over a year ago. It is a driver's car. Great around corners and great on a long trip. It is very powerful although I wouldn't mind just a little more power. Navigation system is awesome, we use it all the time. The car is just big enough for taking another couple out but small enough to feel like a true sports car.
This car has been a blast to drive since day one, never failing my expectations, nor failing to put a smile on my face. The lines of the car are only appreciated when hand washing and waxing the car. One of the smartest decisions I have ever made was purchasing this vehicle.
Exterior design, 2JZ engine, Lexus prestige, handling, nothing drives like it. 17" 5 spokes are some of the nicest stock rims I've seen
Interior is short of being luxurious. Back Seat is a LITTLE tight.
It just does everything well. It's a blast to drive, and it cruises like a big car. Navigation system needs to be more intuitive, and fuel economy isn't great, but overall we're super happy with this little sedan!
Utterly reliable. Near supercar braking. Superb handling and ride with L-Tuned performance springs and swaybars that makes stock car seem too soft. Silky smooth engine. Crisp 5MT. Very comfortable driving position. Good controls layout.
I like that it is a rare car. Sportier than the overpriced 3 Series. Safety.
