2005 Lexus IS 300

2005 Highlights

The IS 300 continues into 2005 largely unchanged. A limited-slip differential is no longer available with the manual transmission.


  • Outstanding driving dynamics, slick interior decor, competitive pricing.


  • Small rear seat and trunk, not much storage space, aging design struggles to keep up with its more modern competition.

solid investment
The best thing is the low maintenance - this is a modest luxury wagon, but is a great alternative to the bmw saab audi or vw wagons. It is quiet, smooth and incredibly responsive. The tight steering and ample 215 horsepower make for an exciting drive.
Fun on Wheels
A real kick to drive. Traded in my BMW 3 series for it, and I'm not sorry. Handles like a dream, a has a real sport car feel. Only complaint is the small trunk.
Thumbs Up to IS 300
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.
