Dude, what problems are you referring to? It's a wonderful car, I haven't had any significant problems - have about 5,000 miles already. The car seems to get better with mileage, is fun to drive, and gets sooo much attention - even after 5 months.
And the service that I get from my Lexus dealer is unbeleivable. Free car washes for life, loaner cars, and much more.
You can get a loaded car for $31K or so, go for it.
Like I said, every car has minor problems...this one doesn't have any that Lexus won't fix.

Good luck

I'd marry my IS300 if it was possible. jk. But it definitely is the shizzynit. It's a pimp ryde mixed in with some fried rice. You can't lose. And the car will definitely retain it's value since it's an import lexus car (100% made in japan) and it's highly sought after. So if you wanna be cool in the eyes of your friends and in the eyes of the members on is300.net, GO GET IT!

corolla = = is300?
well, if you are ignorant enough to take that advice then go ahead and get a corolla


but if you happen to be more intelligent than the trolls above then yeah, you should go check the is300 out at the dealer.

corolla != is300 ,
about problems, most problems that peole are having are minor things + its covered under waranty.

as to my solar yellow, I haven't had any problem w/ it yet.

The problem was minor. In my case I did scrape the bottom of my car because I didn't realized how screwed up the pavement was coming out of a parking lot. It knocked it loose. I thought I had a flat or something when I first heard it. However, I took the car in for my 5,000 mile service and it was fixed right then. Now I'm at 7000+ wonderful, trouble free miles and I couldn't be happier.
