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


Review

This car is a major headturner. Lexus
has the best service in the world. I
test drove the G35, CL, TL, 325i and
the IS300 was by far the best deal and
best car. This car is so quiet that
sometimes I forget its on!


Best Features

great one touch moonroof, brakes are awesome, sporty yet luxury look


Worst Features

not so cheap cupholder, memory seats, better gas mileage

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


Review

THE 03 LEXUS I OWN HAS TOO MUCH ROAD
NOISE, I DONT KNOW IF IT HAS TO DO WITH
THE TIRES OR UNDERBODY INSULATION. THE
PERFORMANCE MIGHT BE MUCH BETTER WITH
THE MANUAL SHIFT AND THE "E" SHIFT I
HAVE IS SELDOM USED, I THINK IF THEY
HAD MADE IT TO BE USED WITH THE SHIFT
LEVER, AS IN THE ACURA, IT WOULD BE A
LOT MORE FUN TO DRIVE. OVER ALL I AM
PLEASED WITH THE CAR.


Best Features

INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR LOOKS AND FEEL


Worst Features

MORE HORSEPOWER, BETTER "RED" PAINT. ALSO THE ORANGE INSTRUMENT LIGHTS CLASH WITH THE GREEN SIGNAL LIGHTS. JUST SOMETHING THAT BUGS ME.

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


Review

I purchased my Lexus is300 in july of
2002, a little over a year ago and i
all ready have over twentysix thousand
miles on it. The car has been nothing
but a joy own, with no problems to this
date. There is only one thing that i
would like to see take place, and that
is for TRD to come out with a
supercharger for it. that not to say
the car is underpowered in anyway but
we all like to have the upper hand!


Best Features

As far as favorite features are concered, i would have to say the gauge cluster, only because it is like nothing else. it is a dissapointment to see similar cluster in in a manufactures spread only because each model is suppose to be unique in all aspects of each other.


Worst Features

Not that the car is underpowered but the 5JZGTE block would be the ultimante solution for the performane of the car to compete with the M3, and if not the turbos the TRD supercharger would be a nice improvment.

Review

I have had the IS for little over a
year. I love this bad boy to no end!
Its awesome! Everyone is left behind
at red lights...anywhere. This car is
very powerful for its size.
Comfort/size...you wear this car like a
glove. Its tight, nimble, powerful, a
great car! Styling isnt for everyone,
but you MUST give it a test drive. It
is truly an enjoyable car. GREAT
sound system too!


Best Features

Unusual style. Stands out in a crowd with its aggressive stance.


Worst Features

Bigger trunk.
