1999 Lexus IS 200 Review
CD changer problems
Great Car. Mine Next Car Will Be The Same One, Only Newer! — It's a great car. Good build quality (interior isn't the strongest one ever, so keep it in mind and be careful for scratches on the dashboard and etc.). It's extremely quiet, under 3000BPM you won't even notice it's working unless you don't look at the dashboard. The engine sound is just great, it's l6 and I personally believe that if you take care of it (changing oils and filters with branded ones when you have to) that engine will basicly last forever, ot at least 600,000 kilometers. The breaking is very good, it has lots of breaking safety systems (abs, breaking assistant, EBD). The acceleration is pretty good. However, you should know that this is not a sports car, it's an elegance sedan so you should not expect a racing possitilites out of it. I'm pretty glad with the gas mileage. However, it can be better but it all depends on you. I personally like driving the car and don't really care about the MPG. It has EXTREMELY good audio system. I didn't really see another car with that good OEM music. It has 6 CD changer that sometimes makes problems. Is it a fun to drive? It's brilliant, to say the least...

Medicore 3-series Clone?
This car gives me mix feelings. On one hand this car is extremely reliable, quiet, comfortable with good driving/steering feel. On the other hand the engine (2.0L 1G-FE 155Ps) is less than capable, t... Read More
Is 300 Is The One To Have, Same Fuel Efficiency But More Power.
