By compcond on
2003 Lexus IS 300 SportCross 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I still miss my A4. '98 Avant with
49,000 miles. $5,700 in repair bills
(not including cat) during years 4 and
5. No accidents, all maintenance and
repairs done by Audi dealers. Car
needed ECM #3 and had Check Engine
light when I traded it in... and I
still miss it.
The IS strives to be a German car...
it's not. It's a great handling,
super reliable, fun to drive, really
Instant throttle response, great
handling, comfortable seats, GREAT A/C.
Car needs 6 speed manual (leave first
5 where they are... just add a 6th to
improve the 23mpg on the highway) and
minimize the blind spots in back.
