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

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.

Favorite Features

Power, e-shift, xeon lights

Suggested Improvements

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