Stick-Shift Lexus IS300
By habersk on


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


I am thrilled with the car. I
researched for a year before my
purchase and am still happy with my
decision. I was very dissatisfied with
my experience at the Dealer however.
There weren't alot of stick-shifts
around my area and they used it to
their advantage. In addition, I was
displeased to learn that Lexus dealers
use the same shady bargaining tactics
as other lower end dealers. They used
deceiving tactics such as changing
around the numbers to try to confuse me
and purposely miscalculating things. I
am an engineer and didn't fall for the
tricks as easily as someone less
experienced in math could have, but it
was pretty disappointing either way.

Best Features

I like the dashboard arrangement and all the chrome in the interior. Also the leather-escaine trim is a nice alternative to either leather or cloth.

Worst Features

5th gear could be geared a little higher.
