2003 Lexus IS 300 SportCross 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


I drive alot! 2-3K per mo. Heavy LA
traffice or flat out on a freeway. Car
handles both very well. Got 21K on the
clock. New Yokohamas to replace the
crap Potenza tires that are over rated,
at 20K. In summary, the biggest beef I
have is the ability to adjust the
driver's seat to my needs. Nada!

Beef #2, as the trans shifts in to 2nd
under kickdown , acceleration goes

Paint finish is not to the standard of
the other Lexus cars, ie lots of rock
damage, paint readily nicks down to the
metal. Suggest new buyers put a small
bra on the nose when they first get it.

Best Features

MONSTER BRAKES!Love em. Cool design inside and out. Limited # of these on the street.

Worst Features

Ability to adjust lumbar on at least the driver's seat. More power in the mid range of the power band. Tighten suspension, with heavier duty shocks and sway bar, or offer an electronic option for those who are more aggressive when the "time is right." (ie the wife is not in the car)
