2003 Lexus IS 300 Sedan E-Shift 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I've owned my IS for a week now and I
love it. It handles great still has a
good ride considering the low profile
rubber on the 17" wheels. Has decent
aceleration and never feels bogged
down. The seats are comfortable. I
wish I had an office chair like it.
this is a fun to drive car. Oh yeah
and you get Lexus service and
reliability of a toyota. Everything
about this car screams fun and luxury.


Best Features

Smooth Auto, Exterior design. handling, great audio system, fuel economy, Fun Fun Fun.


Worst Features

could use lubar support for seats, maybe 20-30 more horses

Review

I just got my IS300 5 months ago and
love it. I am actually 18 and have 4
friends with one, and I have never
heard a complaint. The E-shift almost
makes it feel like you are actually
shifting, and when your not it is so
smooth. NICE!


Best Features

I love the front end how it sticks out from all the other Lexus'. Also all the people that pull up and stare.


Worst Features

More trunk space. Sleeker design. More with Navigation.

Review

I got my car in late 2002, its now
2003 and every 'homie g' who can scam
up $35k is driving one. I am truly sick
of every honda teenager wanting to be
me with the tail lights and oversized
exhaust. I am happy with it overall,
but it's a bmw or infiniti for my next
car, unless lexus grows up.


Best Features

Great overall handling, heated seats are a plus, pretty good Pioneer stereo and in-dash cd changer, nice chrome 17" wheels. great value for the price - the "all or nothing" options and packages is a good idea by lexus.


Worst Features

More HP! I can get a $25k nissan altima to kick the car's ass, exterior styling has got to go, steering wheel audio contols, rear heated seats, stupid blinking seatbelt lights have to go, theres more but you decide....
