Still the best, after all these years. by Kathleen on 10/15/2013. Trim: 2004 Lexus IS 300 SportCross SportCross, Owned 10 years.
Pros: Easy handling, great acceleration, amazing brakes, lots of baggage space. Comfortable, adjustable seating A quality vehicle throughout. I have owned the IS300 2004 sportcross for ten years, and am impressed with the safety, handling, comfort and style. Plan to keep it another ten years. Only have put 51,000 miles on it. Lexus service is beyond all expectation, based on prior experience with other agencies (Nissan, Subaru, Mazda).. One minus: repairing scrathes and deep dents (caught in a hailstorm last year) is expensive because of the high-quality paint job.
Cons: Can't think of any real problems. Lacks enough space to put all my "stuff" in the front.
Overall review: Amazing vehicle, quality, safety, service, performance. My granddaughter (16 tomorrow)' s first car is a Lexus IS250 sport. Her argument for choosing it: "my grandma has a sports car because it's safe, so as a learning driver I want the IS250 which is a safe car too" Who could argue with her? Certainly not her grandma. Accelleration, braking, responsiveness make the split-second difference. I haul a lot of "stuff", the Sportcross has about the same capacity as my daughter's Lexus SUV.
