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


Review

If all cars drove as poorly as mine
we'd all take public transportation.
The dealership, when they can be
bothered to return my calls, tells me
its normal for a Lexus to have an
extreme amount of vibration in the
steeringwheel, even on the smoothest
roads you can find in southern
California.


Best Features

That I can still trade it inon another Audi.


Worst Features

Quite trying to pretend your a luxury car maker. I've driven Cavaliers that had better road manners and same build quality.

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


Review

This car is outstanding to drive. Its
handling is great, especially when
going into a curve. At least once a
week I have someone asking me about the
vehicle. Get one of these.


Best Features

Performance and handling.


Worst Features

More horsepower.

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


Review

I am 6'6" tall though lean, so keep
this in mind when I make my comments.
First, the car is not a BMW, does not
have anywhere near the handling
(typical sloppy plowing turning
characteristics). Crummy Perrelli (sp?)
tires. Poor mileage. Quality issues too.


Best Features

Nice looks, good engine noise, nice interior.


Worst Features

Tires, springs, shocks, stereo, seat adjustment.

Review

After 6 months I have been pleased with
the purchase. Ride quality is very
good, seats comfortable and supportive,
transmission smooth and easy to use in
the Sportshift mode. I like the
Ecsaine fabric because it warms up
quickly and keeps me from sliding in
the seat. The car is quiet, the sound
system very good and the 6 disc changer
in the dash is handy.

I average 22 to 23 mpg on premium fuel
in town driving). I have yet to
observe highway mileage.

The interior space is well designed for
hauling cargo when necessary. The car
remains tight and rattle free as I
approach 4k miles.


Best Features

Sport shift feature, power passenger seat, seat heaters, fold down rear seats and passenger seat back. Analog instruments in a unique dash layout. Limited production numbers (I have yet to see another car like mine in the Seattle area).


Worst Features

A little more tilt in the driver's seat squab.
