2003 Lexus IS 300 SportCross 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

I bought my IS300 Sportcross about 10 months ago and have over 15,000 problem free miles. This car's engine gets stronger and stronger as it breaks in at it jumps off the line well. Just did a 14.83 second 1/4 mile at 95.66 mph. 0-60 mph was recorded at 6.54 (compared to the magazine/Lexus number of 7.4). My 0- 60 foot time was 2.257, better than I could manage with my 02 Corvette Z06 on the same night! We also own an 01 IS300 with 46,000 problem free miles. Great car

Favorite Features

Tires, engine, stereo, handling and braking.

Suggested Improvements

Tires wear out too quickly (normal trade-off), needs memory seat on Driver and fuel economy is 20-23 mpg in real life (for me - could be a little better). Lexus should keep the I6 and bump displacement up to 3.2 Liters for an extra 20-30 hp.
