Any problems with the 2.0 turbo engine in the 2018 Lexus IS300 ?

My brother is considering buying one, maybe the IS300 F.

Yes, the engine size doesn't line up with the model #, so he is getting ripped off.

BMW also engages in the chicanery.

Only that you can get an Infiniti QX50 VC (Variable Compression) 2.0L turbo engine that is better on power and fuel economy.
That VC is incredible.

Do you know if the buyer cares to make it to 300k miles?

Yes it will. Besides, anybody buying in the luxury car segment (Infiniti, Lexus, BMW) usually doesn't keep it more than 5 years anyway. That crowd has money and wants cool new stuff very soon. On the used market, later on, sure you can debate it, but for a new 2018 or 2019 model, you can't argue with the superior performance and innovation of the Infiniti. They have raised the bar and the rest of the industry is trying to catch up. Infiniti wins this round easily. More power AND MPG at the same time. Nice.

Right, lIke I said above, most of the new buyers in that segment are on to the next shiny thing in 5 years or less anyway. Actually Infiniti makes great engines anyway, so no problem there.

oil_film_movies,

Yes, every 4-5 years my brother buys a new car.

So 100K miles is irrelevant to him.

Not "no wear", only that the engine survived.
Also, the pistons were blackened more than that New Orleans redfish I had last week....

I drove a GS Turbo. Not enough motor for that heavy car. Got the V6 instead.
Enjoy your new car!
