Great Car with few Exceptions
By Vishal on


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


This is a great car, but I have had a
couple problems with it. No matter
what the dealer tells you about rear
wheel cars, don't believe it. I had a
$13,000 front wheel drive car for 7
years. I lived in NJ, PA, IL, and SD
(Yes, South Dakota). I lived in rain,
snow, sleet, and ice. Out of the 7
years, I never got in an accident and
never get stuck. I then traded it for a
$33,000 rear wheel Lexus last year.
Since I have had this rear wheel drive
car, I have fishtailed a dozen times,
got stuck in the snow 3 times, and
yesterday (the cherry on top of the
sundae) slid off the road into a
telephone poll.

Best Features

Power, e-shift, xeon lights

Worst Features

Bigger truck, more space in backseat, gear shift should not be made of metal, gets too hot in summer.
