is it normal that your car is hot inside like air coming out underneath the pedal and the dash?
Exceptional build quality and reliability. Fun to drive. Definitely my taste, appears that Lexus read my mind in my most desirable features in a family car with Traction control, heated seats and exceptional climate control system. Never let me down. 2002 IS300 with manual transmission. Currently with 101,000 miles, the only maintenance I have done are normal wear and tear and preventive maintenance. Oil and filter change, air filter, tires, timing belt, clutch. Highly recommended. Drive train completely stock. Only modifications are LED bulbs, audio system, Infinity basslink active subwoofer, replaced stock tires with 245/45/17s. Definitely a keeper. Strong contender to consider if you have a small family and enjoys stick shift/manual transmission. Priceless...
Great car since new--now 95000. Replaced only Air Flow sensor at reasonable cost (dealer) $250 @ 40K and 90K. Timing belt changed @86K for $600 at Dealer special--noticeable improvement drivetrain performance. Maintenance done in local shops with common Toyota parts. Looking forward to keep car for another 50 thousands miles. Easy tire replacement via TireRack.
Excellent drive. I have taken some of the wildest turns of my life in this car, and it never disappoints me! comfortable ride, plenty of space inside; most of all, it never looks bad! :)
I have owned an '02 IS300 for about 4 years now and I love it.
