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


Being rear drive and very light this is
the worst car I have ever had for
snow/wet road driving. Even with the
standard 16" tires the car would not
move away from the curb in the first
snowfall. I put Blizzaks on it and it
is somewhat better but this vehicle is
not recommended for northern climates.
the TRACS system also sucks. It makes
starting out on wet pavement 'chunky'.
It also seems to have a hesitation on
acceleration at times.

Best Features

I do like the power. Also the escaline material on the seats is very nice.

Worst Features

A center consul would be nice. Also a better TRACS system.
