2002 Lexus IS 300 E-Shift 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
The Lexus IS300 is an absolutely amazing car. This car is the most solid-built, reliable car I have ever owned. My previous vehicles - an unreliable Volkswagen and cheaply made Civic - will never be missed. This car runs and drives so smooth you forget it's even running. I bought this gem at 98k miles and it still drives like brand new, I've NEVER done any repairs other than maintenance (tranny flush, timing belt, etc). Like many IS300 owners, I feel like I want go buy a new one when this one dies off. Too bad they don't make the IS300 any longer.
I6 engine is just so smooth and bullet proof reliable. This car is QUICK when you need it go be, and A/C IS ALWAYS ICE COLD (nice in Houston summers)!
Some cheapness feeling to the interior. Larger cabin would be nice.
