My baby is so worth the cost of having
him! Even with the increasing price of
premium in the Bay Area. I cannot wait
until Lexus comes out with the IS430!
They'd better not have just been toying
with me in LA at the Auto Show!
That'll be a quantum leap. I'd expect
10s in everything but gas.
FYI: I got it in 2002, not 2003.
The Lexus Sport Hatchback is the
greatest car for me. I carry children
around in it, it's very safe. And if
I'm driving a long distance the gas
saved by not driving a huge monster
oversized van or truck-type vehicle is
enormous. Plus, this car is so much
fun to drive. I'm usually the first to
volunteer to drive anywhere because it
is such fun and very comfortable. The
sound system is wonderful as well. I
can't say enough about this fabulous
car. It has it all.
The SportCross is a small wagon with a
Supra engine. It moves like a cat and
stops on a dime. Add a turbo and run
with M3 BMWs but for thousands less.
The car has an aggressive, naughty
stance. Interior is sporty not
luxurious. With the seats down, I have
loaded five kitchen cabinets with room
to spare. The rear floor lowers for
added flexibility; there are several
stealth storage areas and hooks for tie-
down straps. Called the Altezza Gita in
Japan, accessories, such as a roof
rack, are available via importers.
The SportCross is both practical and
fun. If you want soft luxury get a
different Lexus. If you want to ride a
unicorn while everyone else is on a
horse, get a SportCross.
