Review

I really like this car, my second
Lexus. It is fun to drive and trouble-
free, and you don't see very many on
the road. Loaded for the money.
Everything a 3-series is without the
constant trips to the service
department. Great dealerships.


Best Features

HID headlights, rare, smooth inline six, slick chrome shifter, large 17" wheels


Worst Features

Tone down the clear tail lights, should have seat memories, seats could be a little more comfortable

Review

It's a fine typical well built Japanese
car and it's what you'd expect from
Lexus. I've driven BMW's and was not
impressed with the quality or
reliablity...for the $$. The IS-300 is
soft, smooth, and quiet. The audio
package is really fine too!


Best Features

Sound system rocks. Instrumentation is excellent. Tranny is smooth and efficent. Like the feel of this car.

Review

Cheaper than the 330i, more fun to
drive than most smaller sedans, but
can also be used to drive clients or
parents around (unlike say the Impreza
WRX). I love mine. I was also
considering the G35, but the
reliability differences between Toyota
and Nissan put my money on the Lexus.


Best Features

The Handling. Oh yes, the handling. The understated, yet still aggressive styling. And it's fun to drive.


Worst Features

Acceleration, especially low end power. And maybe a bit more back seat room. and a bigger trunk.
