My Dream Car: Lexus IS300

The IS300 was my dream car the moment it was released. I have a 5spd. Stock it has enough power and torque to be spirited and fun to drive while being good on gas. The dash is prone to deteriorating from sun exposure but that's really been the only downside. Ample trunk space, great audio, and great options most people look for. It's a great platform for those who like to modify cars too, just expensive to do so. I only have to do basic maintenance, slightly more annually than my previous Honda, and just a bit more expensive. I would prefer not to have leather seats, but that's really my only gripe.

A college student's dream

It's just a really comfortable car for me. I'm small, don't need to travel cross country, and if my friends and I need to go somewhere then it gets us there. The gas mileage isn't awful and the interior is super easy to clean. Beyond a few maintenance issues with the engine, I love my car. Plus it drives pretty smoothly.

- Hope C

At this point, it might be a classic! But seriously, it's a solid, comfy point-A-to-point-B machine. Very happy with it.

As someone once told me about a musical instrument he loved, it's not that I need things to be fancy-- I need it to work. Very reliable car. The reason for getting a '03 is that it predates heavy computerized brain age. I like my car to be a car, don't need it to be a computer.
