Fun to drive
By Kevin's Lexus on


2003 Lexus IS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


I had to downsize my budget nd wanted a
sportier ride, so I traded in my 1997
LS400 for 2004 IS300. This car
performs great (quick, responsive,
sporty) and has lots of style. It's
definitely sporty, not cushy like most
Lexuses, so understand that going in.
Cornering ability is fantastic due to
tires and suspension. It comes loaded
with features - unlike BMWs - and is
000's less with great reliability. Not
many people think to buy a small Lexus
sportcar - their loss - but it allows
for some pretty good discounts at the

Best Features

handling, quickness, bluestone metalic color, HID lights and foglights, great sytle - in and out, great stereo, cool wheels and tires.

Worst Features

more interior storage, gas mileage only 20mpg in mixed driving, larger trunk, fold down back seats, bigger cupholders, needs a good spot for a cell phone
