BMW look out!
By spyderman4774 on


2001 Lexus IS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


I bought the IS used four months ago
and must say I am completely
satisfied. I moved up from a Miata and
feared I might be sacrificing some of
the superior hadling of the roadster in
exchange for some additional
interior/cargo space. I was wrong!
The IS 300 handles wonderfully with the
17" wheels. The torque of the inline 6
is unbelievable. Dealer service has
been excellent. The downside to the
2001, is the lack of a front armrest
and no folding backseat.

Best Features

Smooth, quiet, torquey I-6. Luxurious interior, nice factory stereo, and comfortable seats. Great handling and styling.

Worst Features

The armrest issue has been adressed (buy an '02 if you aren't up to retrofitting one). Fuel economy is poor especially in city driving.
