A True Match for BMWs
By pd on
Vehicle2001 Lexus IS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewThe IS 300 gives top value for overall
design and assembly quality and the
resultant reliability. Engine
performance is highly responsive
throughout the RPM range, with instant
response and smooth delivery. Handling
is precise and balanced (neutral with
oversteer at the outer edge). Braking
is excellent. The car never feels
pressured; it delivers a blend of
perfectly synchronized responses.
Better overall than two 3-series BMWs
that I test drove which were simply too
Best FeaturesSuperb handling; smooth engine with wide torque band. Perfect blend of performance and refinement.
Worst FeaturesFirst, tune the engine for a bit more horsepower by uncorking the exhaust slightly (the torque is fine). Second, revise the traction control to be less sensitive. Third, improve the stereo sound quality.
