Thumbs Up to IS 300
By Richard Frazer on


2005 Lexus IS 300 SportCross 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


My use of this car is for daily commuting. It is fun to drive , has sporty handling and performance(5 speed manual transmission), has classy features and is built with quality materials and workmanship. For my purposes it is just the right size but this would not be practical for those with larger needs. Its positive attributes overshadow the plain styling. The mileage is acceptable (25- 27 mpg mountain driving conditions) but could be improved, maybe to around 30- 35 while maintaining the performance.

Best Features

Quality design and workmanship, solid/tight feel, Lexus luxury in a sport sedan.

Worst Features

Offer the IS 300 in a two door with AWD and retain the manual transmission. Improve low RPM torque.
