2005 Lexus IS300- My biased) review

So, this is my Technically my dad owns it, but I DD it and am slowly it off. Time for a review I

Exterior 8/10

I think is a very good looking but in a more subtle way than cars. It just looks a sports sedan should. The foglights compliment the white HID very well. The Altezza lights look good on car, unlike ricers who it. Besides that, I have to say other than the lines are

Interior 9/10

For the early the quality of the interior of the IS300 is No terrible plastics where actually bother touching, and the plastics that it does feel like they are of quality stuff, not water plastic. The gauge cluster is for being like a Chronograph and freaking awesome. My car has the full package, and the leather is amazing. The seats have decent but I do find myself sliding a bit taking hard corners. In the where people haven’t sat much, the leather feels new, extremely soft and One of the gripes I have with the is the stuff they used to the dash. It melts over the so I have a slightly sticky (especially on the passenger airbag) picks up fingerprints and dust nothing else. Luckily, if you it down with a

damp rag it all goes away. The gripe I have is the lack of legroom. Luckily, they up for this by making the rear and armrest the most squishy, things ever.

Acceleration 7/10

The IS300, of course, was never a fast car and will be. 215hp and 218 ft lbs of torque makes the car peppy and fun, but you’d call eye-peeling 0-60 times for the automatic reside around the 7.3 second while the manual seems to put up times.

Nothing wrong Brakes stop the car and do so pretty The pedal has a nice feel, a tiny bit too much travel,

The IS300’s ride slots between soft and hard. Its Just enough harshness to you that you actually just hit a but not enough to break your when you do. Very comfortable car for driving.

Handling 8/10

2005 Lexus is300 review

Let me say that this car handles well. The steering is just enough, and definitely not too heavy. Its about perfect, really. You can every little bump in the transmitted through the wheel, but it ever get annoying. You can throw the car and have a ton of fun without ever close to its limits, which is

I’ve never driven a IS300, so I can’t tell you hand if they are any good or but from what I’ve they are a little vague and All that can be fixed with a few though. Now, the auto, I have, is just alright. In auto mode, the car shifts a less smooth than it when the transmission is cold, but it warms up it’s smooth as The E-shift mode works for downshifting, but it’s not a true shift mode. Basically, its the transmission Oh, you have 2 gears to with *shift up* now you have 3 up* 4 *shift up* and now 5. If you are in, say, 4th gear, and too hard it will shift without your consent. it doesn’t let you select 1st gear, because

1st is so small.

The stock radio is actually good. Nice bass, not crisp treble, and smooth The engine growls when you rev it, and it can put a on anyone’s face, if you are in the car. of the car, it’s disappointing. The exhaust is Lexus’d so that it is silent. It doesn’t sound any than a corolla from the Slap an aftermarket exhaust on though and you have one amazing car.

For a Lexus, the IS300 doesn’t have much it comes to toys. Mine has heated seats, and a full sunroof. That’s about it. for 2005 that wasn’t when it came to luxury The navigation is also a little to use, with its tiny selection button.

For 30 grand you got a very nice sedan with a legendary 2JZ and of fun. For just a few grand you got leather, navigation, and heated That’s a decent value, in 2005.

Power: 215 HP @ 5800 218 lb-ft @3800 RPM

Transmission: 5 automatic
