My Dream Car: Lexus IS300
2003 Lexus IS
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.
