From BMW 3 series to Lexus IS 300

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

Review

As a previous owner of a 2000 BMW 323i, it
was a pleasure to finally turn it back at the
end of the lease and purchase a 2002 IS
300.

This Lexus is fun to drive, all of the controls
are within easy reach, everything seems to
be in the right place and the inside and
outside styling is refreshingly contemporary
as compared to the aging 3 series.

The Lexus has been problem free from day
one. The outgoing 323i was a great
automobile but was ridden with broken
window regulators, stuck moonroof shades,
horrible window creaking when driving and
poor quality leather seats which required
frequent shop visits.

Best Features

fun factor, performance, reliability of a Lexus, great a/c system, awesome brakes, 6 disc in-dash changer, ecsaine seats, manual shifter, dash instruments, lots of standard features = "big bang for the buck"

Worst Features

fuel efficiency, need an IS 430 with a V8, swap tacho and speedo
