Why the 2002 Lexus IS?

Exterior styling

I have the Sportcross version, and I like the "aggressive and distinctive wagon" styling. There are not many of the Sportcrosses out there so it is a little unique.

Cargo capacity

When money ran tight earlier this year I did much of my own moving when I consolidated residences. I found out then that the amount you can pack into a Sportcross is amazing..

Safety & braking

Firm confidence building braking... good non-snow conditions handling...

Why Not the 2002 Lexus IS?


Handling in the snow is tricky (rear wheel drive car) unless the tires are less than a year old.... this may vary depending on the tires.... but my experience indicated that tires with any wear are best replaced before the snow hits.
