I am in the process of going from an Audi to a Lexus and have narrowed down my decision to the 2001-2005 Lexus IS300. Before I make a purchase I was wondering if these are reliable cars or if I'm going to spend more time at the dealership than on the road. Any help or insight would be appreciated. Thanks

I sold a 1998 A4 quattro for a 2003 IS 300.

The IS 300 is sooooo much a better car. All wheel drive is great. But that was the only advantage I could see the Audi had. The interior in the Lexus is like 25x's better, and the steering response and "feel" is better. I was allways chasing issues on the Audi, And I have never had a problem with the IS 300. The aftermarket support for this model is huge, and parts are readily available as this car uses a similar platform that has been around for a long time, which is the Supra platfrom that has been around since around 1992.

I've had my 2003 IS-300 since it was new (5+ years and about 40,000 miles) and it has not had a single repair. Nothing has gone wrong with the car since the day I drove it off the dealer's lot. All I've done is normal maintenance.

I had similar good experience with my 02 which I bought when it was a year old and then drove for 2 more years before I traded it. Zero problems.
