2004 Lexus IS 300 Sedan E-Shift 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car is amazing in every respect
compared to its competition (G35, A4,
325, c230, etc). Although it is not as
powerful as some in this list, it makes
up for it in superior handling, better
brakes, and a much more beautiful
design, inside and out. Since these are
not top sellers in this country, you
can easily find one fairly affordable
and at the same time have a car that
you dont see everyday (like the 325i).
I bought mine for 33k black/black auto
with navigation. This car could easily
go for 30k or lower. I suggest you
check this out if you are looking for a
car in the 30k price range. Also, this
is the most relibable lexus.


Best Features

Interior, exterior styling Brakes (that stop faster than a lambo) Engine (215 hp, but it is the 2jz-ge, which is the same engine that's in a supra---this motor has been proven to hold over 600rwhp again and again with turbocharged applications)


Worst Features

Not really any, if you weren't modifying your car, then you might feel that its underpowered

deall

I love this car, the speed, the
handling, the feel.

Interior, cup holder, glove compartment, more space in the back, the continual chipping of the paint on the hood.

Review

I really wanted to get a sports car
(I'm 53yrs old), but didn't want to
look like the old dude going through a
mid-life crisis. This IS 300 with the
5-speed is the absolute answer. Now
all the young kids say "kewl man" and
all the old folks say "hey, nice car"!!
Not only is it a delight to drive, it's
a sound investment, as the blue book
value remains relatively high for a
longer period of time. Thanks Lexus!!!!


Sincerely,

TD (Skip) Martin (Old dude having fun)


Best Features

5-speed. Low center of gravity. Sophisticated, yet sporty lines. Milage. Sound System. Customer service from Lexus of Orlando is absolutely marvelous.


Worst Features

A few more horses wouldn't hurt.
