Chose it over a 3 series
By CEB on


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


Nice smooth engine and crisp 5sp.
transmission. Great brakes. Very solid
feel and very well built. Smooth power
with better low end than 330. Sporty
interior. LSD a must. Great value
compared to BMW and Audi.

Best Features

Sound of inline 6 engine. Terrific brakes. Sporty Styling. Rare car. Build quality and predicted reliability.A lot of equipment. FUN TO DRIVE!

Worst Features

Chassis can take more power so easily that it gives the impression that it lacks power. Needs stiffer stock sway bars. A little more agressive exhaust. Some softer feeling interior materials. The Japanese in general just can't seem to make the doors shut with the clunk of the Germans.
