    2002 Lexus IS 300 - Manual Sedan

    Pros: Sporty appearance and Lexus quality.

    Cons: The lack of power compared to other cars in its class

    Advice: Get the summer tire option

    IS300 handles great, has decent performance and great brakes. The ride is firm but not to the point of being harsh. The car rear seating is tight. The over all quality of the car is superb! Lexus needs to increase the vehicles hp or offer a supercharger or turbo to better compete with vehicles being offered by BMW,Infiniti and Acura. My dealer could not find a car with the limited slip differential. Why Lexus does not include this option as stardard is beyond me. I would like to see Lexus offer some type of wood interior accents. The stereo system is excellent, however it's slightly weak in producing bass tones. The optional navigation system is difficult to program as it doesn't utilize a touch screen interface.

    2002 Lexus GS 300 - Base

    Pros: Performance

    Cons: the fact that it's not made in Germany

    Advice: Try everything else BEFORE you drive this!

    As a former BMW owner and after falling in love with 2002 BMW (either the 530i or 540), I agreed to test drive the Lexus GS300 at my husband's urging. I was surprised to find that I liked the Lexus as well as the BMW, and there was more 'bang for the buck'. The car had pep from the line and smoothly moved into cruising speed on the highway. It was as quick as the 8 cyl. 540 with better fuel economy. The road feel was great and the cornering was excellent with just the right amount of comfort. In addition, the Lexus still caters to those of us who like to play our casettes (an option not available in the BMW).

    2002 Lexus GS 300 - Base

    Pros: looks

    Cons: noises.....

    Advice: none

    When I first test drive this vehicle I fell in love and purchase the vehichle right away. After a year exactly I'm having problems with this vehicle lots of noises under the car. I went to dealer ask them why this car creates lots of noise. What they did is lubricate joints and etc. Still having problem went back to dealer to check them and they said it strut on right is bad and they have to order them from Japan. I question why they will only replace Right Strut? After 1 month my strut arrived and they replaced them, but the problem still there. so when back to again and they order the left strut for another month. I am still waiting for schedule appointment which is very very hard or long wait....... I wish I should ask my neighbors first before considering buying this expensive vehicle with poor customer service, poor diagnostics and long waits to fix a warranty parts.

    2002 Lexus IS 300 - Manual Sedan

    Pros: inline-6

    Cons: too cramped in the rear passenger area

    Advice: look into getting the A4 quattro 6sp for the same price

    The car handles nicely, but it is missing a lot of the amenities that the Audi A4 has. Such as, memory seats, heated rear, dual climate control, 6sp, awd, power trunk release, air bag release based on impact, rear seats fold down, 12-way electronically adjustable seats, free oil changes and scheduled services and a lot of rear legroom. The Lexus' rear passenger space is very limited and the seats do not come down to have access to the rear (only a ski pass-through in the armrest).

    2002 Lexus IS 300 - Manual Sedan

    Pros: The tightness of the car in every aspect!!

    Cons: ??

    Advice: get a car cover.

    Gripping, Literally!! This car stays on the road. When you get in the car it feels like the car is pulled over and around you. When you hit a 90 degree right turn at 45 and you never slide in your seat or on the road that is when you know that the car can handel. Also available at the dealer is a L-Tuned package. You can get 18-inch rims and a sport suspension.
