The Lexus IS300, a compact executive car from Lexus, Toyota's luxury division, emerged in 1998 as a contender to the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C Class, and the Nissan Skyline/Infiniti G series. Also known as Toyota Altezza in Japan, the car was designed as an entry-level sports model with a performance-oriented focus, earning it the title of Japan's best car in 1998-1999. In 2000, the IS300 entered the European and American markets boasting a 3.0L six-cylinder 2JZ-GE engine, producing 220 hp, paired with a four or five-speed automatic transmission. The design was considered innovative and became known as the "Lexus style" or "Altezza style". The second-generation IS300, commencing production in 2005, was created under the L-finesse design concept, featuring a sleek, coupe-like appearance, a long sloping roof, and a front-end with an overlapping arrow design, reminiscent of the early LF-C concept car. The third-generation model launched in January, inspired by the LF-CC concept and was equipped with either a 2.5L hybrid engine or a 2.5L four-cylinder and motor-generator combination, alongside a CVT Continuously Variable Transmission System. The IS300 won numerous awards between 2005 to 2007, further establishing its prominence in the luxury car segment.
Sharing a similar platform with other models, the Lexus IS300 is known to experience common issues, notably engine, suspension, and braking failures. Engine issues are often the most serious, beginning with distracting whining noises from the engine, followed by retarded ignition timing and, eventually, difficulty or inability to start. An illuminated Check Engine Light, coupled with reduced power, acceleration, and fuel efficiency, often warrant a thorough check of components like the spark plug, camshaft seal, drive belt, air filter, timing belt, and oil filter. Suspension failures could lead to abnormal tire wear, disturbing noises from the tire area, and unpleasant driving due to excessive vibrations, commonly attributed to faulty wheel bearings and ball joints. Brake failures often present as noisy and poorly responsive brakes, a pulsating brake pedal, and brake fluid leakage, mainly due to a faulty brake pad set and wheel cylinder repair kit. Keeping the Lexus IS300 in top condition isn't easy, considering its many components. Parts like the door handle, emblem, hood latch, and hood cable inevitably wear down due to frequent usage and should be routinely maintained. Regular maintenance is key to extending the lifespan of your IS300 and ensuring a long-lasting enjoyable driving experience.
