2002 Lexus IS 300 SportCross 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Review
I have had this car for 14 months. It still attracts attention here in Los Angeles and is alot of fun to drive. Tested it in rural New Mexico where it handled very well on a straight stretch of open road at 130 mph. The car apparently was not designed for sport conditions as I have beat the hell out of the front dam on curbs and crossing intersections in the city and the 'cute' low profile tires do not hold up to either urban or cross country conditions. Why call it a sportscross if you can't drive it that way without the tires falling apart!!!!
Favorite Features
The in-dash CD player is the best. The e-shift is only useful for going downhill, but the knob looks good. The seats that go down are great for trips to IKEA. I could get more in my little car than the Range Rover next to me on the last trip.
Suggested Improvements
Completely rethink the relationship of the car to the ground. The unavoidable scrapes on the dam detract from the cars appearance. Replacing expensive tires every 10,000 miles is unacceptable! While the IS300 has good performance, it is not a Ferrari.
