2002 Lexus IS 300 SportCross 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
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
Handling, steering , brakes, and smooth transmission
Could use about 30-40 more horses with commensurate torque increase. That would make it unbeatable
