2004 Lexus IS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Am I the only one who bought the 5M?
Most of these reviews are for the E-
Shift, which I test drove but LOVE the
five speed. This car handles better
than my BMW 325 did, and has more
power as well. I almost bought a 330i,
but after test driving the IS300
decided it was a bargain, several
thousand less and more basic
equipment. Fun to drive through twisty

Best Features

Five speed tranny (take note Lexus: Shift knob gets VERY hot in the sun, change from metal please), in-line six, handling.

Worst Features

I think the spedometer/odometer layout is tacky, fold down rear seats, better gas mileage.
