2003 Lexus IS 300 SportCross 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I drive alot! 2-3K per mo. Heavy LA
traffice or flat out on a freeway. Car
handles both very well. Got 21K on the
clock. New Yokohamas to replace the
crap Potenza tires that are over rated,
at 20K. In summary, the biggest beef I
have is the ability to adjust the
driver's seat to my needs. Nada!
Beef #2, as the trans shifts in to 2nd
under kickdown , acceleration goes
Paint finish is not to the standard of
the other Lexus cars, ie lots of rock
damage, paint readily nicks down to the
metal. Suggest new buyers put a small
bra on the nose when they first get it.
MONSTER BRAKES!Love em. Cool design
inside and out. Limited # of these on
Ability to adjust lumbar on at least
the driver's seat. More power in the
mid range of the power band. Tighten
suspension, with heavier duty shocks
and sway bar, or offer an electronic
option for those who are more
aggressive when the "time is right."
