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

Review

The handling is extremely capable for
sporty driving and the brakes are
unrivaled. The power is adequate and
smooth, though it tends to lug a little
at lower RPM's. The E-shift allows
only limited control over shifting
(gears 2-5) and far too often down-
shifts on its own. A HESITATION
PROBLEM occurs in many IS300's as a
result of the vehicle's ICU (onboard
computer) malfuntioning -- a major
issue considering it is not detectable
during the intial test drive, gets
progressively worse, and according to
Lexus, is not correctable.

Best Features

Nice exterior, great handling and excellent brakes.

Worst Features

A transmission hesitation at low speeds that is annoying and potentially dangerous.
