Funny Little Car — This car makes me laugh...I think I love it jsut because it was my first car. Great engine...it is powered by the legendary 2JZ-GE motor. Forged connecting rods, pistons, crankshaft...this engine was meant to be boosted. Unfortunately, the twin turbo engine was not an option in the USDM JZS147. I like this car....it is extremely comfortable and love to cruise around town. The suspension does weird things when driven fast so smoothness is key. The brakes do a good job of slowing down this massive slab of car but the brakes do slightly fade when consistently applied with force. I would recommend this car to a person who is looking for a luxury cruiser...this car would make a great JDM VIP project.

Pros: Comfort, strong engine

Cons: Suspension does weird things

Brilliant, But Expensive — It's unbelievably comfy, reliable, drives like a train, everything's electrical, ...it's brilliant. But it's thirtsy and it's large (so tricky to park or manouvre through tight spaces)

Pros: Comfy, luxurious, reliable, performance, yet understated.

Cons: Fuel economy, size

Nice, But Needs More Oomph. By Matthew

I like that it's a lexus and I know I should be able to drive it for ever if I take care of it. I also question the funny noises coming from my suspension... they were supposedly "fixed" under warrant... Read More

Be Cool, This Car Will Make You That By Skyleur

Only complaint would be the outdated stereo system and the older V6 fuel economy. The stereo sounds great but is just missing some of the gadgets of today. I think a person who has a nice commute, or ... Read More

Superb By Jack

To sum up this car: It was born out of Toyota engineering in the 90's. Some say some of the best Toyotas were produced then, this car is no exception. With the mighty 2JZ under it's hood and classic... Read More
