Given that the 2JZ-GE engine on this car is not available in JDM and not yet available in Europe, given that people from different places drive differently, and given that most people are incredibly arrogant to think their problems are everyone else's, I can see why. No offense, my reply is just out of frustration of seeing all the stupid posts lately -- "geez, the IS will suck from now on," "WRX -- IS killer," "[Name a car] vs. IS300," and so on, and so on, and so on.Originally posted by IS300LEX:
Forgive me if this has been covered, but with all the problems you guys are experiencing, can anyone give an explanation why they didn't catch these problems before the IS came to the states? (driving conditions, manufacturing plants, etc...) Is the IS300 really that different from the 200 or the Altezza? Maybe Im the only one thinking about this but I would think they would catch the problems in the other two models since they came out a while before the IS300.
