Not Too Sure Why I Like It More Than The Sedan — very capable car, not really big enough to be called a wagon, good power, many features

Pros: rock solid build quiality

2004 Lexus IS 300 Sedan RWDReview

Overall:

Old School Is — One of the best looking cars out there, one-two combo with great looks and great performance for it's class. Also known as the Toyota Altezza (Japanese) and nicknamed "Baby Supra" since it has a similar engine as a Toyota Supra.

Pros: Everything from interior trim to exterior.

Cons: A bit slow. Runs a 7.8 sec. 0-60mph stock.

Overall:

One Of The Greatest Sport Sedans Of All Time — I drove this car back to back with a G35 coupe (6 sp.) and it just felt so much more light on its feet and alive. It's by far one of the best cars I have ever driven. Great daily driver or weekend toy. With a little bit of boost and some suspension mods, the car is perfect.

Pros: smooth engine, lovely gearbox, great balance, quiet, toyota build quality, plenty of aftermarket parts available, looks, comfort, everything!

Cons: Needs a bit more power and the suspension is a bit soft in stock trim.

2004 Lexus IS 300 Review
says:
I bought my Is300 because I played a video game when I was a kid (Need For Speed Most Wanted) and I had one in the game. I loved it. It was fast, cool, and everything else a 13 year old would want a car to be. Once I got older and more into the engineering of automobiles, I realized that Lexus makes some of the best cars on the market. I bought my IS 2 years ago and other than a battery, tires, and oil changes I've never had any issues. I have many friends with IS's and family with older Lexus' than mine with twice the mileage (154K miles on mine) and they all love them. I've had 8 cars since I've been driving and I used to work at a Ford/Lincoln dealership, so I've driven hundreds of cars. But there is seriously special about a Lexus.
