Perfect — excellent performance, great response, stable mauvering, fantastic sound system and great AC. fairly solid build has not experienced any rattles during the period I drove it. Elegant interior and exterior, mine was black exterior color and beige leather interior. DVD and navigation system was fun

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: perfect

Cons: none

Get One. You Will Love It — The 2005 Lexus IS300 built by Toyota is a great mid-sized sport sedan. It is dependable, reliable, has excellent performance all at a mid-range price. One of the best cars on the market in the price range. Great features like the e-shift and the optional built-in dash GPS unit make this one a really fun car to drive around.

Pros: fun and reliable

Cons: price and cost to maintain might be deterants

Japenesse Know What They Are Doing — Its a great car, I love it and would not want to sell it, durable, tough and even has a great feel overall. I must say that it is great value for money, doesn't hassle and bother. The drive and quality is also worthy of the competition and beats it by miles

Pros: Great value for money

Cons: Sports transmission, doesn't change after touching the redline

Lexus Is300 Review — Performance - 3.0L 2jz should outperform the BMW 330i, but barely beats the BMW 325i. Disappointing NA power, but a good Boosting platform. Braking feels good, and handling is quite good with coil-overs, however chassis could be a little stiffer. Build Quality - only repairs needed were windshield wipers, which are normal wear and tear. only squeaks are probably from aftermarket suspension Appearance - very bland exterior and interior, however exterior is a great platform for modifications. Cost of Ownership - bad mileage for its weight and motor, but maintenance is cheap because nothing ever breaks Fun Factor - handles decent, is fun to drive, but needs more power!

Pros: Build Quality

Cons: Power

Best Car I've Had — Other then the amount of room in the back seats, I have nothing to complain about with the Lex.

Pros: Plenty of pick-up
Great MPG
Rock solid steering
Great braking power

Cons: Minimal room in the back seat

Very Good — The Sportcross is a pleasure to drive, wish it had a little more zip (guess I could always install a turbo-charger!). Do wish it was more of a fuel miser in light of the nominal engine power. The Lexus quality and dependability is very good in this model. Overall it is a great daily driver, would highly recommend if you are looking for sports car handling with cargo space.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, comfort, cargo space, Lexus quality

Cons: Not the best fuel economy with not the most powerful engine.
