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


cons: interior materials are poor
quality. My steering wheel leather
started cracking after a couple months.
THe oem tires were terrible and blew up
on me. one blew up after a couple
thousand miles. Another one blew up
later on. The tire recall didn't help
either since they killed the new tires
which I bought to replace my old tires.

My center console plastic started

pros: very solid car. great handling.

bottom line: don't expect to be
reimbursed for any parts that are built
below standard. Be prepared to shell
out quite a bit of money to fix little
things like interior parts, paint
chips, tires, and so on.

Best Features

solar yellow paint. HIDs. 2001 Grille. solid construction. 2JZ-GE engine. Japanese built quality.

Worst Features

find a good dealer.
