2003 Lexus IS 300 E-Shift 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


I test drove several other vehicles
(Acura's, Infiniti, etc...) The Lexus
is by far the best. Handles like a
dream, well made and the
instrumentation is intelligently
designed. It has a beautifully smooth
ride, but feels "tight" when you want
to drive aggressively. By far the best
car for a young adult with more mature
needs (family etc...) but having that
sports car drive. Kudos.

Best Features

Great handling, responsiveness is instantaneous, almost like it reads your mind. Very smartly designed instruments. Good power. No engineering defects or electrical problems like some european cars.

Worst Features

Add a turbocharger. Somehow also improve fuel economy (tank is 15 gal, gets about 300miles to a tank - could we ask for 350 or so?) :-)
