Not quite a Lexus
By jpreski on


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


Overall the car is great with some
issues I can't believe Lexus missed like
usable storage and room, amenities like
memory seat, more adjustable steering,
and tire replacement difficulty. I have
a BMW and they can get these items
right. Great handling doesn't forgive
these items since most people don't push
the handling to the limit.

Best Features

Interior design, rims, stereo, smooth engine.

Worst Features

Cheap finish around interior controls, cig lighter too small to use for cel plug, tires bubble from slightest bump and wear out too quick. Replacement tire impossible to find. Front paint damages too easy.
