2002 Lexus IS 300 E-Shift 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I was lucky enough to purchase my 2002 Lexus IS300 as my first car with my own money my junior year in high school. Car had 120k miles on it and I'm now in college and I've put almost 23k more on it because I just can't resist driving it. Smooth ride, smooth shifting, comfortable seating, love the alcantara! Drilled aluminum pedals are a nice touch. I actually get about 25 mpg when i drive long highway distances at 75 mph, but average right at about 23 mpg on a normal fill-up. Few complaints about this car. I have only had to take it in to the shop for regular maintenance (oil changes, new tires, etc..) Could not recommend this car enough.
RELIABILITY, smooth I6 engine, quiet engine, quiet exhaust, plenty of "get up and go," stock 17" rims
Partly do to my driving, the tires wear fairly quickly. That's all though
