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

Review

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 flat! 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.

Best Features

MONSTER BRAKES!Love em. Cool design inside and out. Limited # of these on the street.

Worst Features

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." (ie the wife is not in the car)
