I absolutely love this car. I sell cars and get to test drive all sorts of vehicles. This is by far the best bang for the buck.

Good Car needs more power

2004 Lexus IS 300 E-Shift 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love the car. The sterio system kicks ass. The driving experience is fun and comfortable. It handles like its on rails and it's got some guts. The only lack luster part of the vehicle is the undersized engine.

Review

I looked at just about everything - I ended up with the LEXUS for various reasons. It was different & not a million of them on the road like every other make. Handling was far superior that anything else out there & i did purchase the Sport Design but the ride was comfortable. Not stiff to jitter your bones & not so soft that your driving a caddy. Safety equipment was standard,great power & may i say proportionate power. navigation system freely available, excellent service from Concord Lexus, great handling & ride quality, uniqueness & proportionate power made me a sucker for the IS 300. The Navigation controls are well placed & far better than BMW & MERC

Pleasantly surprised how this car handles. Used to drive Mazda Miata and longed for the same thrill. And found it - even better...

Everything I wanted

Vehicle

2004 Lexus IS 300 SportCross 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I bought this car because I wanted some utility but not an SUV. The car is FUN to drive, very comfortable, at least for front seat occupants and is so different from anything else on the road. It's nice to have such a unique vehicle. I look forward to driving it every day. Steering/handling, and brakes are excellent and it has PLENTY of power for me vs. my old 4 banger. You can go 80 and feel you are not pushing the car at all. I am perfectly willing to but snows on in the winter for the RWD experience.

Thrilling !!!

2004 Lexus IS 300 E-Shift 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is the most exciting car that I have ever owned. The cars' performance is outstanding. I get compliments where ever I go, especially from young people. I had test driven the BMW 3 series first. Believe me there is no comparison. The BMW's interior is very uncomfortable. The quality of the leather is very rough and hard, and the seats are like sitting on a wooden bench. It doesn't ride as smooth as the IS,nor does it handle as well. I am 53 yrs. old and driving this car makes me feel like 23! ok 33! I guess you can say it's like a LARGER form of Viagra.

Excellent car - smooth ride and great pick up and go! This car has style and comfort at a great price. Many options that do not come with a BMW and 10k less.

Review

If I lived in my IS 300 would people think I was wierd? Seriously I LOVE my car. It has exceeded my expectations all around!!!! I live in Wisconsin and all the rearwheel drive horror stories I was told about this car are simply untrue. Are elderly people giving the review or what? Thanks to the snow and sport track options w/ the I-shift transmission I never even slid. This car is unbelievable! Ive never looked for more reasons to drive a car!

Review

Am I the only one who bought the 5M? Most of these reviews are for the E- Shift, which I test drove but LOVE the five speed. This car handles better than my BMW 325 did, and has more power as well. I almost bought a 330i, but after test driving the IS300 decided it was a bargain, several thousand less and more basic equipment. Fun to drive through twisty turns!
