Vehicle

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

Review

I've owned my 5-speed for almost a year (minus a month and a half for some repairs ;)), and I can easily say it's the most fun-to-drive car I've ever driven. The car handles superbly; I love the way it hugs the road in a turn, the squeel of the tires as I round a bank, the roar as I downshift to pass someone who shouldn't have been in the fast lane. The VVT-i engine is really noticeable in a launch (push that TRAC button to see what I mean).

Best Features

Great manual transmission, sport suspension, sound system, and acceleration.

Worst Features

Needs a 6-speed, turbo, AWD option...something to take on the A4 3.0 quattro and 330xi. Memory seats anyone? If there was a slightly more powerful IS300 (IS330? IS400?) in a coupe or cabriolet version, I'd have to get it.
