2002 Lexus IS 300 SportCross 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Our SportCross is our 1st Lexus
and most definately will not be our
last! The transmission shifts like silk
and the handling is superb and sharp.
The other so-called SportCross owners
above are most assurredly bogus and
probably will never experience Lexus
quality and dependability. We love
Our Lexus IS300 SportCross!
P.S For the owner above who wanted to
disable their vehicle skid control just
push the TSC button on the dash.


Best Features

Love the E-shift, Auto-dimming mirrors, Hatch, Awesome Nakamichi 9 speaker sound system with 6 in dash CD player and on and on and on!!!


Worst Features

Interior hatch release and one on the remote as well. Memory for driver and passenger seats.

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!

2002 Lexus IS 300 SportCross 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Ours is full of add-ons to include
navigation, leather, heated seats, etc,
but the most appreciated add-ons are
the Limited-Slip Differential coupled
with Vehicle Skid Control. Cornering
is uncanny and with superior braking
makes a very competitive vehicle.
Service is poor locally, so we drive 2
1/2 hours one way to the Charleston
dealership. It is of the same quality
as the car.


Best Features

DVD Nav, VSC, LSD and E-shift manual shifting.


Worst Features

Don't let the cruise control disengage every time you slow down. A royal pain to reset it time and time again. Our 1971 Pontiac wagon always held the cruise setting, as has every car we have owned since. You would think that after 30+ years Lexus would get the word.
