Stick-Shift Lexus IS300
By habersk on


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


I am thrilled with the car. I researched for a year before my purchase and am still happy with my decision. I was very dissatisfied with my experience at the Dealer however. There weren't alot of stick-shifts around my area and they used it to their advantage. In addition, I was displeased to learn that Lexus dealers use the same shady bargaining tactics as other lower end dealers. They used deceiving tactics such as changing around the numbers to try to confuse me and purposely miscalculating things. I am an engineer and didn't fall for the tricks as easily as someone less experienced in math could have, but it was pretty disappointing either way.

Best Features

I like the dashboard arrangement and all the chrome in the interior. Also the leather-escaine trim is a nice alternative to either leather or cloth.

Worst Features

5th gear could be geared a little higher.
