2002 Lexus IS 300 Sedan 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I like it alot. ZERO problem with the
car so far. Only a light bulb is
replaced. Other than that, regular 5k
maintenance is all I did. Great
handling, great acceleration, very
comfortable interior. Quiet for a
sport car. Overall, a better car than
Acura CL-S, 350Z, Audi A4 and C240.
No regret buying the IS-300.


Best Features

Great dealership service. Extremely reliable car. Well built overall. Maintain good resale value. Cool to look at. The air-cond is so very cold..... (a good thing when you live in San Diego like I do)


Worst Features

- More horsepowers - Better fuel economy -

Review

Great car, I traded in my 2000 Corvette
for this little machine. In outhandles
the vette, less acceleration but more
fun to drive, heads turn just as much
as in the vette

Review

Excellent car, typical Toyota build
quality, A-1!!! Fun to drive, very
comfortable. Bulletproof drivetrain from
the 2JZ-GE motor(from Supara's past)
super reliable.


Best Features

handling superb


Worst Features

A little more power would make this an awsome car, I have added a SRT cold air intake and a HKS Dragger cat back exhaust and car is almost perfect!

Review

The car handles extremly well. I opted
for 16" tires since I live in an area
that gets snow anually. The ride on
16"s is very nice, 17" tires may give
you a slightly bumpier ride but the
car will really stick to the ground.
It is a very quick car. About 7
seconds 0 to 60. I hate SUV's and many
SUV drivers have tried to race me but
they have all failed everytime. The
car is even fast from 0 to 80. The car
continues to excellerate fast at 50
and 60 mph. This is a great car for
passing those annoying SUV's and Vans
on the highways. The interior is
awesome. The airconditioner is very
cold and does not take away any power
from the engine.


Best Features

The transmission shifts very smoothly. The car is very quite and handles awesomely at high speeds.


Worst Features

The engine is very powerful but I would like to see more horsepower something around 290 or so. Besides that I wouldn't change a thing. It's a great car for a very good price.
